The third in our series of evolving exhibitions, ‘Production Show: Building/Developing/Testing’ includes solo exhibitions, generative performances, artists’ tests for a major public art commission, a new production display system, a set of useful editions, and proposals, concepts and prototypes as events and workshops.
On 17 February and 7 April two improvised performances by internationally acclaimed artist Sonia Boyce will take place against a panoramic backdrop of wallpaper from ‘Paper Tiger Whisky Soap Theatre’ (Villa Arson, Nice 2016) and ‘We Move in Her Way’, showing concurrently at ICA, London. These events will, in turn, generate a next iteration of wallpaper design and skateboards to be deployed by Eastside Projects.
‘Production Show’ is an evolving process – a programme of relationships, commissions, exhibitions and events spanning two years which explodes Eastside Projects as an active space of research, development, prototyping, manufacturing and display. The exhibitions are set against a backdrop of multiple, ongoing live projects with a cast of public and private sector partners, clients and collaborators.
