I Know You; You Can Come With Me
7 June - 9 August 2014
I Know You; You Can Come With Me (IKYYCCWM) is a collaborative gifting project, curated by Harper&Marsh. The project combines multi-participatory, collaborative and networking elements with gifting and public engagement - through a process of 19 artists contributing artefacts to be gifted to the public. This socially engaged project aims to develop artists’ networks and create opportunities for further collaboration. It engages fully with audiences in a completely new way, that demystifies art and circumnavigates the commercial artworld to celebrate the diverse and critically valued work of contemporary art practice.
We chose Wrexham as the region to host our pilot project as it is a region that contains vastly differing geographical, architectural and historical features. Both project curators are currently based in Wrexham and are strongly involved in the town’s flourishing art scene, but also work in various parts of the UK with a variety of collaborators.
