Gareth Bell-Jones' presentation at Artist Placement
Gareth Bell-Jones, director of Flat Time House (London) will speak about The Incidental Unit. Formed after a series of 'incidental meetings' the Incidental Unit was initiated by Barbara Steveni, Neal White, Tina O'Connell, Gareth Bell-Jones and Marsha Bradfield in 2016-17. Sharing information about the Artist Placement Group (1966-89), as well as O+I (1989-2009), the meetings have one open agenda item; 'unfinished business'. The meeting structure evolved in intention and purpose to become the Incidental Unit, with the aim of reconnecting the rigorous approach of APG with wider concerns around the brief given to socially engaged art today. Barbara Steveni, co-founder of APG, will feature in a short film that will be screened. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A, moderated by Antony Hudek.
