TAXED: Slide Slam 2 at A Foundation Fri 13 Nov

FRIDAY 13 November 2009, 19:00 – 22:00 at A Foundation
A Foundation invites you to the last TAXED of 2009. This, the sixth in our series of events designed by locally based artists is a taxed version of Art in General’s Slide Slam.

Curated collaboratively by a team drawn from partner studios and A Foundation, Taxed is an excuse and an experiment in increasing communication between artists/makers and organisers from the Liverpool arts community and beyond. In recent months we’ve ‘borrowed’ Sarat Mahar’s reading group format, Paul Butler’s Collage Party and Stadelschule’s week-long celebration of hospitality and food, Gasthof.

After 2009 the Taxed team will shut up shop for a while to re-assess the need for such events and think about directions to move in the future…

Thank you to everyone who has been involved so far.

Our final Taxed event to round off 2009, The Grandest Slide Slam of Them All (taxed off Art in General) will take place exactly 10 months after we started the TAXED series with exactly the same event (kind-of). This time we call for presentations and information sharing not just from artists but from all kinds of creative practitioners, curators and organisers. We would like to know what artwork, exhibitions, shows and artists etc you look at for inspiration, research or enjoyment. What art makes you tick?

A Foundation’s artist committee is inviting twenty artists to each make a three-minute presentation. A Foundation are again seeking a critical audience, a collection of individuals willing to make their opinion of what they have seen – to probe, to scrutinize and to lay themselves as bare as those who willingly serve up their ideas as intellectual sustenance for the ravenous horde! But if you’d like to come along just to listen, that’s fine too.

All slammers will be confirmed in advance so if anyone is interested in presenting then drop an email to
