Frances Scott: Diviner

June 20, 2018-  June 24, 2018 |  Free

Autonomy and artist-run space

June 23, 2018 |  Free
Join members of Auto Italia South East, Marianne Forrest and Ed Gillman, in exploring ideas of autonomous artist-led spaces and asking what autonomy can look like – and what its terms are – for artists working in London today.

Auto Italia was founded in 2007 by a group of fine art graduates as a response to an absence of accessible space to show work and a desire to create a...
