Exploding Appendix Avant-Garde Art Practice & Research Group: October ScheduleOctober 1, 2018
Cineblatz (1967, Jeff Keen)
The Exploding Appendix Avant-garde Art and Research Group (EAAARG) is a weekly meet-up upstairs at The Marwood, 52 Ship Street Brighton, England, BN1 1AF. The meet up will start at 7.30pm every Tuesday.
Our aim is to create a space where artists, intellectuals and others can meet to discuss ideas, issues and creative projects. The evening is composed of two elements. On the one hand, evenings tend to comprise of relaxed informal discussions about art, art projects and ideas. On the other hand, we try and add something different each week. This might be a film screening, a live performance, an improvisation/creative session, a work in progress session, a reading group, a guest talk, an interview, a panel discussion, a debate, a reading group, a workshop, an exhibition, live music or a party. This is all very flexible and can be built around the interests of the group.
EAAARG will run alongside the Exploding Appendix website (www.explodingappendix.com), a multimedia online magazine that produces videos, podcasts, articles, interviews and visual essays exploring ideas and culture generally, and can be used as a platform for presenting projects related to the group.
Whilst drawing upon the history of avant-gardist and counter-cultural ideas we aim to explore a wide range of issues beyond the narrow purview of conventional art discussion. We welcome people working within different disciplines, different artistic mediums and coming from very different perspectives.
Below is the schedule for September:
