For CG Associates only

CG Associates will be visiting artist-led projects in Birmingham, hosted by Trevor Pitt from A3 Project Space.

Eastside Projects
a free, public space that is being imagined and organised by artists. Eastside Projects commission and present experimental contemporary art exhibitions, and propose ways in which art may be useful to society. “We believe in working collaboratively towards change and do so to support the cultural growth of Birmingham. We do not make art for the public. We are the public that makes art. The artist run space is not a stop gap. The artist run space is a public good.”

The current East Side exhibition, Trade Show, is a group exhibition that exercises the function of art to exchange, present and enact different economic practices and cultures of trade. Grand Union
