Auto Agents

  • Sat, 26 Nov 2016 - Sun, 15 Jan 2017
  • 10.00 AM - 6.00 PM

Exhibition runs until Sun 15 Jan.

Auto Agents is an exhibition curated by the AaA collective, a group of five people with learning disabilities. It explores what it means to be independent by making your own decisions, which comes from the collective’s personal knowledge and experiences around the continued lack of choice and control many people with learning disabilities face.

Auto Agents features new work by artists from The Royal Standard studio in Liverpool. This includes an interactive artwork by James Harper that sees audiences controlling a sculpture through various independent mechanisms, as well as a limited edition book designed by Mark Simmonds. As well as these new commissions, Auto Agents also features the work of London-based artist Alaena Turner for the first time in Liverpool.

To find out more about the project please click here to read the blog provided by the leader of Auto Agents, Jade French.

Join us on Mon 9 Jan for Do Feel Think Curate, an event following on from Auto Agents, the workshop explores collective and collaborative ways of working, taking the AaA collective’s approach as a starting point. On Thu 12 JAn Bluecoat will also be hosting What Do You Use Books For? This event is a performance lecture from designer Mark Simmonds based on his latest publication Book, commissioned for Auto Agents.
