Transit Arts: THE ECONOMY EXPERIENCE

transit-1-76-of-138

Pipe Factory Courtyard: Moncur Street
10am – 3pm
Sunday 30th August 2015

Transit Arts is a nomadic programme of artists’ film, screened from the back of a van curated by Marcus Jack.

For its inaugural instalment, the van presents moving image works by Caroline Campbell, Common Culture, Dennis & Debbie Club, Jean-Baptiste Maitre and Will Kendrick which negotiate the adventure of consumption today, in the era of the experience economy.

Imitating and upending the language and postures of selling, “The Economy Experience” celebrates a mythology of honest commerce and its unsung heroes. This instalment is an elegy for late capitalism and its obsession with surface: viewer becomes consumer; art becomes product; artist becomes salesman.
