MUESLI’s current project aims to directly engage with artists and collectives by using curation as a tool. By exchanging curatorial control and through swapping time and experience, we aim to create a dialogue between other contemporary art spaces and projects, connecting the North West to further afield.
12ø is an artist run space and collective based in Stoke Newington, London, aiming to experiment with the premises of an artists practice. Founded in response to a lack of alternative and inclusive opportunities outside of institutions for emerging artists, by hosting and creating projects concerned with engagement, experimentation and exploiting both what we do and don’t know.
We have invited 12ø Collective to use our space to their desires; Not As We Know It will be curated by 12ø.
NAWKI is a project that intends to exploit the premise of the art fair model, showcasing young and emerging artists, organisations and projects to create a collection of small exhibitions in one space.
The project is split into two parts, one being the art fair and the other being a group of artists who take the role of installers, furnishers and technicians to house the work of the organisers with their own work, utilised as supports for their display.
