Parade Market of Ideas May 23, 2010
The Market of Ideas: 2pm - 6pm
Chelsea College of Art and Design has a large contemporary courtyard at its heart: the beautiful Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground. We have collaborated with Polish curator Kuba Szreder to develop a programme of events that will explore the diverse, contested and vital conceptions of being in public.
In a bespoke, temporary structure designed by award-winning Polish architects Ola Wasilkowska and Michał Piasecki - assembled in public - we aim to produce a landmark event in an amazing location with a host of international contributors.
Parade will challenge the lazy, institutionalised model of knowledge transfer - in which amplified 'experts' speak at a passive audience. Our modes of assembly, our forms of address and the knowledge we share will be intimately bound.
Critical Practice is a cluster of artists, researchers and academics hosted by Chelsea College of Art and Design, a constituent college of the University of the Arts London. We have a longstanding interest in art, public goods, spaces, services and knowledge, and a track record of producing original, participatory events.
