Autonomous Series - curatorial project by Alli Beddoes

Autonomous Series is intended to be experienced as a research laboratory. Each solo show provides grounding for the film programmes and  discussion evenings. Rather than solely fitting in with a contemporary art discourse, these artists use found objects, readymades and the stuff that fits in between everyday experiences as vehicles for new ideas.

This premise guides Autonomous Series the discussion evenings by positioning them in a way that implies and requires professional, conceptual and theoretical backgrounds to provide material that can be used to explore ideas through the introduction of new exchanges – linking or threading science, history, art and architecture together. These elements can be referred to as tools and used to dissect and investigate the artist’s work in alternative ways.

Autonomous Series is supported by Campbell Works.
