Temporary Autonomous Art - LONDON
17-21 November 2015 @ Crows Nest gallery
TAA returns to its roots with an event in the capital now confirmed for 17-21 November 2015. It's in a legal creative space, kindly donated by the charity Artcore, and so we will have to adapt the format slightly and use it as an opportunity to get fresh blood involved, some great art on show and discuss building for the future!
The final programme and full event details are found over on the main TAA website.
It's an open-access show so you can email us to register interest london (at) taaexhibitions (dot) org.
If you would like to bring some momentum to the activities of Random Artists or want to discuss the success of this event and make plans for the future – join in the Future of TAA discussion taking place at the event, Sat 21st at 6pm.

Nearest tube station is Latimer Road or Ladbroke Grove (Circle/Hammersmith & City lines). Buses 295, 316 stop nearby. If driving is a necessity then please use the car park for the leisure centre as no street-parking is available on Crowthorne Road.
Temporary Autonomous Art is an open-access explosion of creativity that has been taking over venues across the UK since 2001. These are places which break free of the sterile and closed-circuit nature of the traditional gallery and where traditional art forms sit alongside performance, music, spoken word and film as well as talks and workshops.
The gallery space will feature work by random artists.
Our evening entertainment programme from 8pm each day:
Tuesday – Opening night mash-up
Wednesday – Spoken word
Thursday – Film night
Friday – Live performance
Saturday – Live music
Talks and workshops will mostly be scheduled each evening at 7pm and throughout the day on Saturday. Check back for more details.
In some cases we will be accepting work up to and during the event so we are unable to provide a complete programme; though one will be drafted up and published closer to the event.

Temporary Autonomous Art - CARDIFF

The TAA flame has been rekindled by a crew based in Cardiff and an event is planned for the end of April 2015!
Here is their blog page for the event:
You can email them via taacardiff (at) riseup (dot) net to get involved and show support.
MUSIC DAY is a FREE PUBLIC EVENT
which takes place each year on the 21st June
in more than 104 countries and 514 cities around the world!
The event is also known as Fête de la Musique (or World Music Day) and originated in France in 1982. Since then the idea has spread across the globe with each event holding to the same set of principles: that the day is held on the mid-summer solstice and that all concerts and events are free to the public with a non-profit making objective.
Typically this means that the music
is brought out ONTO THE STREETS!
We are lagging behind in the UK and so a small collective is doing what it can to coordinate events here. If you are musician, venue, promoter or just want to help out then fill out the form on the Get Involved page of the website.
There is a map on the homepage showing where people have pledged to stage Music Day events this year. There is still plenty of time to get your event, big or small, on the map.

Random Artists presents A Wasteland Alchemy
@ the ADM TIJD Festival
it is Time to journey into the future where humanity must adapt and transform. In the collapse of Now we search for the Elements which are needed to advance evolution. Random Artists' alchemists create an interactive installation that crosses the bridge between a conscious shift and natural chaotic mutation.
Wasteland Alchemy is an evolution of our most recent project, The Synthetic Gardens, which took our ethos of waste re-use and fed it into a permaculture scenario, creating a futuristic world where plants and machines had mutated together to form new species'.
Random Artists is a collective, based in London, which has been putting on exhibitions in squatted venues for the last 11 years. Tackling at a grass roots level the need for creative, autonomous responsibility within the community. The general ethos of our shows is to re-use the so-called 'waste' of modern urban society, encouraging others to be proactive toward the environment.
TEMPORARY AUTONOMOUS ART LONDON 2011
Massive thank you to all who helped fix up a derelict nightmare and turn it into a fabulous expanse of artistic/festive fun! Massive thanks to all performers, artists, skill sharers and film makers! Massive big up to everyone who turned up and helped create a friendly and enriching atmosphere. Massive Massives to all the Massive!
