What is the role of a gallery in the forging of a new city? Eastside Projects wants to be a productive force and work with others to invent new modes of production. We want to be used. We need to work with you.

From widgets to houses, from the gallery to the World, ‘Production Show’ is a public acting out of our impulse to develop and support the making of culture in challenging times, and an attempt to reclaim Birmingham as a city of production.

Public Art Thinking: Symposium and Publication Launch

  • 22 November 2017 1-5:30pm

Eastside Projects is delighted to be working with Birmingham Big Art Project to host a symposium that will bring thinkers and practitioners from various fields together to discuss Public Art Thinking and what it is today.

The event will be made up of a series of conversations, inviting contributors from artistic disciplines to investigate the ways artists and organisations are working together to rethink their role in the future development of our cities.

The symposium will discuss: Who is deprived in the process of development? How can we make space unique within mass development? Could artists be better property developers? How can arts institutions engage with publics to develop artworks?

Speakers will include: Mel Jordan, Barbara Holub, Rosalie Schweiker, Robert Garnett, Andy Reeve, Vanessa Boni and Gavin Wade.

A double issue of Art & the Public Sphere journal has been dedicated to Public Art Thinking on the occasion of this project. Edited by Mel Jordan and Anna Santomauro it includes commissioned work by Janna Graham, Robert Garnett, Mel Jordan and Stuart Whipps and is published by Intellect Books. The journal will be launched as part of the symposium and copies of will be available for purchase on the day.
