Not Too Critical is an inclusive and informal discussion group hoping to incite debate and discussion on matters and subjects to the Contemporary Arts.
For the Wednesdays of the 22nd and 29th of May we shall be meeting to discuss Liam Gillick’s seminal text, Maybe it would be better if we worked in groups of three?
In the second and final instalment of his essay Liam Gillick looks to the experimental factory as a possible parallel to forms of art production that are deeply embedded in notions of work and life. As evidenced by the attraction of art exhibitions to industrial spaces, artistic production often enjoys its proximity to the model of an experimental factory. And yet, given the right circumstances, an experimental factory could surpass art’s capacity for critical reflexivity by manifesting its promises in the form of a functional model.
Join us at Sandbar on Wednesday for a drink and a discussion!
