Thursday 13 July, 18:30-21:30
(as part of Primary Lates)
Nawki or ‘not as we know it’ began last year, with the intention to experiment with the art fair model, each iteration shifts its focus to a different framework with a selection of arts organisation/spaces across the UK invited to participate, resulting in a cross-organisation collaborative outcome.
This year the fair will take the form of an artist film screening, experimenting with a platform specifically for digital, time-based works, where the show’s constraints are responsive to the medium, becoming primarily durational, as opposed to physical. Each organisation is invited to contribute a segment of digital and video artwork, that will be compiled to make a two hour long showcase, with each slot as the organisation’s respective ‘exhibition’.
The resulting video will be screened simultaneously, at every participating space throughout the UK on 13 July starting at 18:30
In 2017 nawki’s participating organisations are:
Eastside Projects ESP
Focal Point Gallery
The White Pube
Nawki is kindly supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
