Jack Tan @ Arebyte, May 3 – Jun 26

2 May 2016

Jack Tan is doing an eight-week residency, Law’s Imagination, at London’s Arebyte gallery, opening May 3 and running to June 26.

The London-based artist’s curatorial research project will explore “collective understandings of the intersection between law and art” through a series of exhibitions of sculpture, video, text and performance, as well as discussions, talks and curated walks.

The “jurisgenerative aspects” of the two fields, particularly the role of creative processes in making legal or artistic judgments, will surface in a “performance and arbitrarian event”  called ‘Karaoke Court’,  ‘Packed Lunch’ weekly music and chat show, a mock training course to qualify as a ‘Certified Legal Aesthetician’, and an “exhibition-making as symposium” day called ‘Care Acts’, named after the 2014 law reform, throughout the two-month period.

Fellow artists Flora Parrott and Marco Godoy will also contribute their own ‘mini-residencies’ and open studio exhibitions as part of the Law’s Imagination programme.

See the Arebyte gallery website for details.**

Kapital Architecture: Accumulation @ LSE, Jun 25

19 June 2014

The fourth and last installment of the Kapital Architecture series, titled “Accumulation”, will be taking place at London’s LSE on June 25.

Following the previous three debate segments – titled, chronologically, “Circulation”, “Labour”, and “Commodity” – the last debate of the series takes on the concept of accumulation in the context of capitalism and architecture. Through the course of the day, a slew of participants are asked to discuss and debate the particulars and generals of the concept, including Alice Honor Gavin, Christien Garcia, Adam Kaasa, Jack Tan, and Richard Whitby.

The debate series – co-organized by the Royal College of ArtWhen We Build Again and Legion TV as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2014 – is free and open to the public, though early registration is required. 

See the When We Build Again event site for details. **
