Names from the old The Public will be doing their thing as ‘Laundry’, a new association of artists in the West Midlands, on 9th Sept (2-4pm). “Mechanicalism” will be a durational Laundry performance featuring Julie O’Neill, Pamela Wells, Ann Walker, Brendan Jackson and Martin Villau, at the Eastside Arts Picnic in Birmingham…

“Repeating a series of cyclical motions, the performers will gather and disperse, ant-like, reassembling at different points around the site.”

Meanwhile there’s a new book out, The Power of Art, that features our major X-Ray Factory project alongside galleries such as The Tate and The Baltic.
