Exhibition Dates: Thursday 29th April – Sunday 16th May Opening Hours: Thursday-Sunday 12-6pm Schwartz Gallery invites the tenants of 92 White Post Lane to participate in a unique collaborative project that divides the gallery space into 80 ‘plots’ or ‘allotments’ reflecting the number of units in the three buildings at 92 White Post Lane. These spaces will be chalked out prior to the works being delivered to the gallery and installed according to the artist/creator’s corresponding unit number. This event forms the gallery as ‘meeting point’ questioning notions of curatorial responsibility and artistic pedigree. Units not occupied by artists may wish to use this opportunity to create an artwork. Allotments not ‘claimed’ by tenants for whatever reason will be left empty. Anyone wishing to collaborate with an artist who is not a tenant at 92 White Post Lane may do so but only in the allotted space and only if the tenant of the corresponding unit is involved in the collaboration. In this way a grid of allotments will be formed that is structured yet undefined; relationships between artworks reflect a diversity of approaches to what art is and how it should be displayed and interpreted while promoting a sense of community. There will be a large allotment allocated for performers on the private view night. Each act will have to have at least one member/tenant of the buildings.
