Artist Tim Ivison will lead a discussion investigating the conditions of artistic labour, with a site-specific conversation on the topic of contemporary art in culture-led regeneration and planning with invited guest Anthony Iles. The event will address the recent history of large-scale development in London, the impact of government arts policy, and the political and aesthetic impacts these have on art and artists working in the city today.

Anthony Iles is Deputy Editor of Mute, co-author, with Josephine Berry Slater, of No Room to Move: Radical Art and the Regenerate City, co-editor, with Mattin, of Noise & Capitalism, writes fiction and non-fiction, and screens films with Full Unemployment Cinema.

Recent Work by Artists – a co-working exercise comissioned by Auto Italia in collaboration with Tim Ivison & Julia Tcharfas, George Moustakas and Rachel Pimm.

Recent Work By Artists has renovated the current site of Auto Italia, landscaping a production space within which to re-imagine the material conditions of artists’ work.  The exhibition functions as a co-working space and studio for online, print, social, and sculptural production. The collaboratively designed space will host events and discussions, a daily work environment, and on-going research, supplemented by refreshments and environmental controls selected for productivity.
