Defrag presents The White Pube and Werkflow in conversation at London’s Somerset House Studios on October 31. 

Defrag is a new event series curated by Jake Charles Rees in collaboration with Somerset House Studios that explores the role “technology plays in the development, production and consumption of art and culture.” The series will invite current Somerset residents as well as invited guests to discuss and unpick the contemporary human experience seeped in “confusion, control, creativity, appropriation and resilience.”

The first talk will be an in conversation between The White Pube (artist, critic and curator duo) and Werkflow, who are currently residents at the Studios where they will discuss the creation and consumption of art through the lens of social media and other commercial technologies.

17 October 2017

The Double y/our Money fundraiser at London’s Banner Repeater begins October 17 on the Local Giving Foundation website.

Each donation will receive a raffle ticket for a prize draw at London’s Somerset House Studios on November 8. The event will include work by Yuri Pattison, Jenna Sutela, Melanie Jackson, Zarina Muhammad and Anne de Boer among others, and will also feature live performances from Benedict Drew and Chooc Ly Tan.

Opened in 2009 by Ami Clarke, the artist-led space is a non-profit experimental project space with an ethos of how these spaces  “play an essential role in the vitality and economy of the art world, offering alternative opportunities for emerging and established artists alike, to produce work that might struggle to appear elsewhere.”

The fundraiser will support Banner Repeater’s upcoming year in the commission of new work, publishing and performance, as well as talks and discussions.

Visit the Banner Repeater website for details.**
