Seja Marginal, Seja Herói (Be Marginal, Be a Hero) parts 1-5
Part 2: i-cabin, 23 Feb -18 March
During 2007 Wysing re-located to central Cambridge, converting a discused car showroom in the Romsey area into a temporary gallery and project space. We invited five international artists' collectives to be resident in a programme that celebrated the marginal. The second collective to occupy the space were i-cabin (Juliette Blightman and Sebastian Craig, London).
i-cabin took the overall title for the project Be Marginal, Be a Hero and transposed it to their marginalised position within the London arts scene. They invited artists who had set up their own project spaces to comment on how they operated in an arts scene dominated by so many other galleries, all of whom were apparently pursuing the same artists for their programmes.
The artists organised an in-conversation with Richard Birkett, at the time Curator at the Whitechapel Project Space.
