13 October – 27 November 2010
Turkish artist Can Altay will transform The Showroom into the production site of a single edition newspaper: The Church Street Partners’ Gazette. The project will draw on research and dialogues with a wide range of people connected to the local area, who Altay terms ‘partners’, trying to expand the notion of partnership beyond its economic and juridical use. The Gazette will be created through open workshops of headline writing and graphic design, and discussion events at The Showroom under the headings of ‘Partnership’, ‘Boundaries’ and ‘Transformation’. Areas of investigation will include rights to space, promises and threats related to regeneration, and limits presented by physical, social, political and economic boundaries.
