Jeremy Deller is keynote speaker at this event exploring situated practice, contemporary art, architecture and urbanism.
The first event in a three-part series collaboration between the Folkestone Triennial 2017 and UCL Urban Laboratory. 'Edge — Situated Practice in Art, Architecture and Urbanism' brings together practitioners and thinkers at three 'edge' locations connected by the High Speed 1 railway to consider creative place-making, arts-led urbanism, and the use of interstitial spaces in the city.
For the first event, we consider Bloomsbury and King's Cross as 'edge' locations. The Gower Street campus of UCL was planned and built on the urban/rural edge of nineteenth-century London, a ‘learning’ gateway through which generations of students have now passed, and one which now runs up against the King’s Cross
development, conceived as a mix of ‘knowledge’ and ‘transport’ gateways.
