The Wagon - Artlicks Weekend at Standpoint Gallery

For Art Licks Weekend:Interdependence, Caraboo Projects will embark on a 160 mile journey on foot from our base in Bristol, to Standpoint Gallery, Hoxton. We will be accompanied by a wagon, collectively built by the community of artists who make up Caraboo. Together as artists we will journey, sharing the weight, testing and progressing our interdependence. 

A record of encounters, exchanges and observations made on the journey will be presented at Standpoint gallery. As we trace historic trade routes we will acknowledge their complex past, whilst exploring how we can create supportive networks and infrastructures given the current political climate.

We will depart from Bristol on Thursday 10th October, and arrive at Standpoint Gallery on Wednesday 16th October. Anyone is welcome to join as we traverse the canal paths, with overnight stops in Bradford-on-Avon, Pewsey, Newbury, Henley-on-Thames, Old Windsor and Kingston-upon-Thames. Location information will be available via Caraboo’s website and social media. 

A public event will be held at Standpoint Gallery on Saturday 19th October-further details to follow.
