Brand News Drop in Workshops

From: Thu 3 December, 11:00am
To: Sat 16 January, 4:00pm

Venue: Market Town Corner, Carillon Court

What if there were no logos and no brands? What would we call products and how would we recognise them? Brand News invites people in Loughborough to take a look at everyday products and have a go at un-branding them.

Throughout December and January artist Kathrin Böhm and designers An Endless Supply will lead a series of hands-on workshops, working with Loughborough groups and individuals, to take everyday products off the shelf and reimagine how they might look: turn coke into brown juice, rewrap chocolate bars and design front pages of newspaper and magazines.

The workshops will collectively re-brand the full product range from a local corner shop, Ashby Square News. As the new looks and individualised brands are created they will go on display in the Market Town Corner shop unit in Carillon Court. On Saturday 6th February the full range of reworked goods will move back into the shop, taking over all shelves and display areas - click here to find out more.

The workshops are free to attend and no booking is required - just drop in! They will be taking place from 11am - 4pm on the following dates:

Thurs 7 January

Fri 8 January

Sat 9 January

Thurs 14 January

Fri 15 January

Sat 16 January

We are also running pre-booked workshops for local groups including community groups and schools. The dates and times have some flexibility and the workshop can be tailored to the group taking part. For more information please email Kate Self or call her on 01509 222899.

For & Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet

For & Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet is a collaborative project between Radar and Loughborough University academics Dr Gillian Whiteley and Dr Jane Tormey, RadicalAesthetics-RadicalArt (RaRa).

This engaging programme responds to research into the political pamphlet and the relevance of the pamphlet for contemporary art practice. It has comprised a series of public workshops, a symposium, a Charnwood Museum exhibition and Pamphlet Day, a day-long public event in the town centre. Jane Tormey and Gillian Whiteley are working on a forthcoming edited book, ‘Art, Politics and the Pamphleteer’, to be published in the RaRa series by Bloomsbury.

This exhibition shares elements of this project, including new pamphlets by artists Patrick Goddard, Ferenc Gróf and Rory Pilgrim, commissioned by Radar; a selection of historical pamphlets from the Art of the Pamphlet exhibition; documentation of a series of pamphlet workshops led by artists Freee, Ruth Beale, Ciara Phillips and Little Riot Press and artworks inspired by For & Against workshops led by artists Chiara Dellerba and Sarah Green, and writer Alison Mott.
