A Workers' Art Market Audio Tour (2019)
This project is a series of recorded podcasts and talks taking place throughout the year.
A Workers' Art Market Audio Tour is a podcast and audio walking tour. It takes listeners on a trip through the wider ecology of London’s artworld, following the contribution of numerous, anonymous (value-adding) workers along the route. Anecdotes from artists, as makers of art and in their day jobs, builds a snapshot of the commercial art world as the tour traces the path of a fictional artwork through Vauxhall, an area with a rich industrial history and a surprising amount of art market activity to a wide range of places that impact and inform the creative process. The tour is written and produced by Invigilator Research Network’s Eve Marguerite and Simon Farid.
