Usurp Art – experiment, reflect and create
Great news! Usurp has secured a touring grant! We are working in partnership with Sound and Music for an amazing tour that starts in 2014. Curated by Poulomi Desai, the tour features John Cage’s “Indeterminacy” (performed by Steve Beresford, Tania Chen and Stewart Lee) and improvisations by “The Conspirators of Pleasure” (Poulomi Desai, Simon Underwood joined by Seth Ayyaz and Jag Bot). Tour schedule and more details will be announced soon.
We are continuing to raise funds for our two-year programme “Process Performance Production” to support new work by an exciting array of experimental artists, composers, musicians and performers. Our renovatons are completed and we are endeavouring to update this site with the full documentation of our numerous activities to date. Check our listings and do look at our videos, archived projects, exhibitions and events.
We are currently running a 10 week creative art programme for Mind users, which has been graded by Ofsted as “Excellent and Outstanding”. Our previous “Ubiquitous” contemporary art, moving image and sound programmes for the charities Mind, Mencap, Harrow Carers and Rethink inspired and enabled service users to create and experiment with new materials and concepts. We can organise and manage similar programmes for organisations and groups. Contact us for more details.
