Disco exists to provide a possible theoretical/practical framework for contemporary art practice. As well as pursuing individual themes and concerns, we aim to collaborate with artists and artists' organisations; to curate/organise events and exhibitions for ourselves and for others.
Four of the seven founding members of Disco are based in Newcastle, the other members in Derby, London and Norwich. Disco was formed in 2000.
'To reconnect with the everyday, we sample from the world around us to revisit that which is taken for granted, via the varied media of artistic practice.'
Disco endeavour to do this with a questioning spirit, learning with each experience. Our working ethos is founded on our manifesto, which is itself a continually evolving reflection of our aims and objectives.
