Details

Join us at the fairground to explore the exchange between art, politics and ideas Fairgrounds were sites of exchange that enabled traders to buy and sell their goods but that also drew together diverse populations in carnival, excess and play.

The component parts of these traditional fairgrounds will be playfully updated and transformed to give a thoroughly new twist on this space of exchange. As the week unfolds, there will be unusual stalls, unexpected tours, pop-up performances and plenty of opportunities to get involved. Be prepared to be challenged, entertained and engaged – or just come along to see what’s going on - as the fairground comes to life. And, expect to have a lot of fun as we explore different forms of exchange between art, politics and ideas.

A collaboration between the Tate Exchange programme and the Sidney Cooper Gallery Suitable for all.
