Double Book Launch
24 October, 6.30–8.30pm
The Showroom 63 Penfold Street London NW8 8PQ
We are looking forward to the launch of our new Golden Threads publication at the Showroom, alongside Andrea Francke’s Invisible Spaces of Parenthood manual during the Grand Domestic Revolution GOES ON.
The book, available in English and Arabic editions, relates to our 2010 Golden Threads fellowships between the UK, Lebanon and Denmark. It looks back on the practice-led research and collective discourse recorded during the four peer-to-peer fellowships.
Artists Hatem Imam, Karen Land Hansen, Emma Smith, and the duo Townley and Bradby researched the varying conditions for artists engaged in social and artist-educator practice in each location. The book includes a dialogue between Emma Smith and Oliver Sumner, contributions from the artists, quotes, project information and images.
Golden Threads was a collaboration between Delta Arts members, invited fellows and hosts: Marwa Arsanios and Mirene Arsanios (Beirut), Karen Land Hansen (Copenhagen), Hatem Imam (Beirut), Lars Mathisen (Copenhagen), Emma Smith (London), Oliver Sumner (Portsmouth), and the artist duo Townley and Bradby (Norwich). We received practical support and advice from Gasworks Gallery (London), SAIR (Sølyst, DK), 98weeks Research Project / Project Space (Beirut), and help from many organisations in each location. Golden Threads was supported by Arts Council England and the Danish Arts Council Committee for Visual Arts.
