Summer Fair Programme

'YOU USED TO CALL ME ON MY CELL PHONE' DINING EXPERIENCE

You Used to Call Me on my Cell Phone is a dining experience exploring notions of millennial capitalism, voluntary invigilance and Instagram. We will cook you the most googled recipe and your favourite influencer's meal. A vegan tasting menu for the young and yoga, for the short focused and down scrollers. You used to call me on my cell phone, late night when you need my love.

The Gramounce is a supper club that establishes the meal as a new display context to access contemporary art. The guest’s attention is choreographed to better engage with the work shown. We organise dinners where an artist is commissioned to exhibit under the idea of the supper as an exhibition. We use cooking as a practice based research process. The Gramounce is run by artists Nora Silva and Finn Thomson. It was born out of art collective MilesKm as a fundraiser in 2014. http://www.thegramounce.com

Nora Silva  is a Spanish-Chilean artist based in London. She graduated from the Royal College of Art in July 2017, and recent solo shows include Hear Me Whisk at Lajuan gallery in Madrid, and Your Friendly Local, at Chalton Gallery in London. Nora manufactures contexts and build sculptural installations as a fiction from where to address political issues. She also co-directs The Gramounce, an exhibition supper club, and MilesKm, an arts collective for the research of collaborative practices within the arts. www.norasilva.com

Tickets will range from £40-£70 and will be released shortly.

Saturday 6th July

12-2pm: From Fashion Ad To Protest, Doodle Art With Naomi Vona (£20pp. Pre-booking required. Book here.)

What happens when we turn the purpose of a fashion advertising image into a more deep and meaningful message? During the workshop we will explore the infinite possibilities in doodling over a magazine page using eye catchy decorations, but we will not stop at it. The idea is to give to the picture a new message and switching it into a fun, humorous or more personal and powerful protest message. The artist Naomi Vona will lead the workshop offering guidance and knowledge of her processes and techniques for manipulating images. All materials provided, feel free to bring a fashion magazine from home if you want.

Pre Booking required, tickets available on EventBrite.

4-6pm: Create a Colourful Poster Collage With Naomi Vona (free, drop in)

Naomi Vona (Desio 1982), is an Italian artist based in London.

The artist defines herself as an "archival parasite, with no bad intentions". Her works combines different interests like photography, collages and illustration. Her research is focused on altering vintage and contemporary found images, creating a new interpretation of the original shots. Using pens, paper, coloured tape and stickers she gives to every image a new life. Every work is basically composed of three elements: her life background, her inspirations and subconscious, that is also the glue that puts all together.

THE TINY SKETCHBOOK PROJECT

Since 2006, The Sketchbook Project has been platform for creative people to share their story. From doodlers to professional illustrators, thousands of artists around the world have been connected through the project. With over 2 million spreads of individual artwork, The Sketchbook Project is a resource of global creativity, completely funded by participation.

 

The Sketchbook Project will be bringing the collection of sketchbooks from the Tiny Sketchbook Project to The Other Art Fair in London. A mobile exhibit of mini sketchbooks that travel around the world...all packed up in an unassuming suitcase that pops out into a full mini library!
