> DESCRIPTION

Outsourcing work has become an integral part of many artistic practices. The construction of large scale and monumental pieces has become easier with the help of large studios of artist assistants and technicians. However, many artists reject this growing trend and prefer to do everything by hand, preserving the DIY tradition of art production. South London based artists James Capper and James Balmforth are artists who keep the tradition strong with their use of welding and carpentry, while Aberdeen born, London based Artist Mohammed Qasim Ashfaq embraces technology in his practice. In this Salon these artists will investigate the benefits and the drawbacks of artistic production in contemporary art.

Participating artists include: James Capper, James Balmforth, Mohammed Qasim Ashfaq.

This event is part of a series of salons taking place at the ICA and the Moving Museum venue. For further details on how to book a place on the forthcoming events please visit the Moving Museum website:
