Sensing Site : A series of research seminars

In response to the exhibition Lines of Thought, Fine Art Research at Central Saint Martins in partnership with students from Goldsmiths Centre for Urban and Community Research will deliver a series of three research seminars at Parasol unit. Proposals have been selected from researchers and current PhD students currently investigating materialities of landscape and place; transformative potential of raw materials and multi-media performance practices using in particular moving image, photography, interactive technologies and sound. The series will promote an open and constructive environment to encourage feedback and peer review.

Lines of Thought: Helene Appel, James Bishop, Hemali Bhuta, Raoul De Keyser, Adrian Esparza, Özlem Günyol & Mustafa Kunt, Sol LeWitt, Richard Long, Jorge Macchi, Nasreen Mohamedi, Fred Sandback, Conrad Shawcross, Anne Truitt, and Richard Tuttle

Founded in December 2004, Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art is a registered educational charity in England and Wales and a not-for-profit institution that operates purely for the public benefit. Central to the Parasol unit philosophy is a total commitment to artists and their creative endeavour, an attitude which leads to a singular relationship developing between each exhibiting artist and the foundation.
Every year the foundation organises four challenging and thought-provoking exhibitions of works in various media by contemporary artists, and also sets up a variety of other artistic projects. Each exhibition is accompanied by a publication and related educational events. The foundation does not bear the founder’s name, and its exhibitions are not derived from the founder’s collection. Admission to exhibitions is free of charge.
Parasol unit operates like publicly funded institutions in London. Currently 58% of the funding is provided by the founder and 42% through Gift Aid, charitable organisations, private donations and the sale of merchandise. The exhibition space has been put at the disposal of the foundation free of charge by the founder. Thanks to this new model between private funding and public support one of London’s most vibrant contemporary art spaces has come to exist.
