KEIRA GREENE AND NATASHA COX AT PLATFORMA
On the 20th March, Keira Greene & Natasha Cox were invited to give a talk at Platforma, a project space in Bucharest. This discussion was hinged around their involvement in setting up Inland studios and the development of Inland during the past year and a half. The emphasis was upon the means by which an artist-run space operates within the larger context of the network of galleries in London. Due to a restriction of space as well as funding it is necessary to think around ideas of display and platforms for artists to exhibit their work, the underlying question for discussion was; how can an artist-run space develop and respond to a 'gallery model' that is defined by the commercial art sector? At Platforma this question is understood in a new context, whereby artist-run spaces are in a sense defining the landscape of art ‘spaces’ in the absence of a clearly established commercial art-scene.
Common concerns are shared between these two very different contexts (London and Bucharest) whereby an investment of ideas and the initiative to 'think outside of the box' shapes the production of artists works. However what became clear is that to gain access to available space in Bucharest and therefore establish workspaces is restricted as artists are confronted with the residual suspicion and unshakable bureaucracy surrounding property rights since communism. In turn those artist-run spaces that do exist in the city seem to maintain a vigorous and socially engaged programme reflecting a contrast to the dynamic of the art-scene in London.
This conversation will hopefully develop and we will announce any further collaboration between Inland and Platforma here.
