Incidental Unit are calling out to practitioners who identify with the methods of Artist Placement Group (APG), and/or want to explore the ongoing relevance of their ways of working, to contribute to an event at the South London Gallery in Peckham, London in September 2019.
This call for entries is open to practitioners working inside and outside of London. Ten successful applicants will be selected by an extended committee of Incidental Unit members. Each will receive a fee of £230 to deliver their project.
The event marks the culmination of the public programme Incidental Futures, six public meetings led by artists at public institutions in Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle to understand the legacy and impact cross the UK.
The Incidental Assembly takes place on Saturday 14 September 12–4pm at the South London Gallery, 65-67 Peckham Road, London SE5 8UH
Incidental Assembly will take place at the South London Gallery in the Clore Studio and Orozco Garden. The Artist Placement Group was committed to placing artists beyond the worlds of art, thereby interrupting norms in law, health, industry, education, administration and more. The purpose of the assembly is to think together, inspired by concepts coined by the Artist Placement Group, such as ‘Context is Half the Work’, the Incidental Person and the artists role in society, to consider socially engaged practice in the present.
Incidental Unit envision the afternoon to be a convening of practices explored in a variety of ways including, but not limited to, installations, moving-image, interactive interventions, workshop building exercises, fieldwork and mapping. Additional to the Saturday event, on Friday 13 September 2019, Incidental Unit will be holding a public Study Day to bring together research considering Context is Half the Work, ‘incidentality’, artists’ roles in society and socially engaged practice. All applicants are invited to join us, as are members of the public.
