Bruce Asbestos: We are open, 2011
Project Space 11, Plymouth City Market
Monday 4th April – Wednesday 13th April 2011
Please note for this project we will be open Mondays – Saturdays from 10am – 4pm.
£171 is the final exhibition of the current incarnation of Project Space 11, based in Plymouth City Market. Our lease ends on the 13th April and after this we will be taking a short hiatus until we hear about our future funding bid.
For this final show we have commissioned 10 artists from the past year’s programme; inviting each one to invest a percentage of £171, the remainder of Project Space 11’s budget. The purpose of these investments is to consolidate the future of PS11. The investments could be anything from actual monetary gain, ‘tips’ for artist-led sustainability or artworks that will gain in value. The investments will help to support future artist-led activity led by PS11.
Each artist has been given £17.10. In the outcome that the artist’s investment does make a financial gain, proceeds will be put towards PS11’s future programme, but the artist will receive 20% commission. £171 explores alternative methods of supporting artist-led activity in a time when traditional arts funding is under threat.
