Here is Five Years. I recommend:
This Is Not Public/Part 2. What do we mean by public engagement?
4 - 6 October 2013
Charlotte Knox-Williams, Jonathan Trayner, Christine Sullivan and Rob Flint, Neil Ferguson, Kim Wan, John Greene, Edward Dorrian, Joe Duggan, Andrew Cooper
This Is Not Public/Part 1. was an open call made by Five Years inviting anyone to make a proposal that would initiate a preliminary ‘public’ discussion in the gallery critically addressing the Arts Council of England’s funding question:
‘What do we mean by public engagement?
’ Whether we choose to examine the Arts Council’s own funding guidelines, question the idea of a so-called ‘not-for-profit project’/ ‘artist-run space’/ ‘independent curatorial project’ such as Five Years itself or reflect on the Art Licks Weekend’s own special case for ‘opening’ such projects and spaces ‘to the public’ is of course up to us.
All proposals were accepted.
For This Is Not Public/ Part 2. each participant has developed their proposal in two ways. 1. as part of a ‘draft’ publication*
