CCA Shows 2017: Turn the Tide
28 April 2017 to 30 April 2017 | 12pm 5pm
Battersea, Dyson Building
This year’s CCA MA graduating students present their final projects developed in collaboration with leading art galleries based in London as part of the new CCA Graduate Partnership project programme. Working with Gasworks, Delfina Foundation and Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall and building on previous commissioning projects with the RCA’s Sculpture programme, the four projects explore themes of public space, liquid citizenship, nomadic communities and spatial memory through such disparate contexts as an off-shore company boardroom, the New Covent Garden Flower Market, the Victorian railway arches of Vauxhall and the practices of Airbnb.
Turn the Tide is an offshore company, operating from a boardroom temporarily based in the Dyson Gallery at the Royal College of Art. In this office environment, constructed from newly commissioned and existing works by international artists, members of the public are invited to take ownership of the company by participating in a series of public board meetings. These collaboratively scripted and improvised live events will discuss ideas and experiences of liquidity, capital, citizenship and geographical borders.
Artists: Eva Barto; Julie Béna; Jesse Darling; Martti Kalliala; Christopher Kulendran-Thomas; Aron Kullander-Östling and John Menick.
Thursday 27 April, 6–9pm: Preview and press conference
