Friday Session_47: Hackney Wick Un-Regulated 

Friday 30th September from 7.30 to 9.30

92 White Post Lane Hamlet in Hackney Wick, London E9 5EN

Hackney Wick - once described as an unregulated landscape - has been transformed by the Olympics into one of the most highly regulated landscapes possible. The changing character of Hackney Wick has inspired the work of many artists, curators and commissioners. Hackney Wick Un-Regulated invites a selected number of practitioners who have worked with Hackney Wick across this phase of transformation to critically examine changes in motivation, praxis and outlook.

Speakers include Rowan Durrant (artist), Colin Priest (Studio Columba), Rebecca Whyte (Stour Space), Caitlin Elster (Muf architecture/art), Joanna Hughs (mother studios), Anna Harding from [Space], Joe Stillion (Electric Matchbox) and  Mimi Mollica (photographer via Skype).

Friday Session_47 will take place in Hackney Wick.

Hosted by public works together with Hilary Powell, to form a contribution to her forthcoming book about the Olympics, published by Myrdle Court Press and to be launched in April 2012. The session will be recorded.

Places are limited and RSVP is necessary. You can do so -here.For more information on the other salons of the series click here.
