This event is for STEAMhouse members.
STEAMhouse members are invited to join Mat Jenner, founder of TACO! for an informal conversation about his practice.
Led by our Creative Director Ruth Claxton, this is the latest in a series of events designed to demystify the commissioning process and help artists understand how different curators and organisations work, and how projects and relationships with artists evolve.
This event is exclusively for STEAMhouse members – find out more about how to join HERE.
Mat Jenner is an artist who has exhibited nationally and internationally and whose practice works across studio and institution. In 2017 he established TACO! an artist led space for cultural production located in Thamesmead in South East London.
TACO! comprises of a gallery, bookshop and community radio station that supports a programme of artist projects, exhibitions, publishing and broadcasts. TACO!’s programme supports a dialogue and exchange between artists, audiences, community and place.
TACO!’s activities are experimental and collaborative. Invited artists are supported to research, develop and realise projects over a dedicated period of time. This research informs a public programme that includes exhibitions, events, discussions, workshops, screenings, publishing, and co-authored participatory projects with local people and groups.
