Incidental Unit (IU) with artist Anthony Schrag host the first event of Incidental Futures (IF) programme.

This incidental event examines walking as a political and poetic act. It references Barbara Steveni’s Scottish Walks projects, where she used walking to embody the associative narratives of subjective memory about the Artist Placement Group (APG). In one of these walks, Steveni pushed open the doors of the Scottish Office, metaphorically speaking of access and transparency.

Artist Anthony Schrag has similarly used walking to speak of collaboration and access: in 2015, he walked 2638 km from the highlands of Scotland to Italy, as a way to speak of the role of Socially Engaged Practice at the Venice Biennale.

This incidental meeting will receive curatorial support from Marsha Bradfield, core member of the IU. Incidental Futures is coordinated by Polly Wright.

The project is supported by Arts Council England, CREAM, Flat Time House and University of the Arts, London.

ABOUT INCIDENTAL UNIT

The IU was developed with original members of the Artist Placement Group (APG, 1989 – 2009) and its successor, Organization + Imagination (O+I, 1989 – 2009). Since 2016, the IU has advanced this lineage of radical and rigorous artistic practice, and seeks to reignite and enrich debates around the role of the artist in contemporary society and, more specifically, around current modes of socially engaged practice in the UK.

IF seeks to build upon the rich legacy and examine how this resonates and manifests in practice today with the aim to identify ways to disrupt and improve patterns in education, administration, planning processes and countless other areas of public life. Through the ‘incidental meeting’ format we will come together to attend to APG’s unfinished business.
