The Local Projects Shelf will feature the many projects and publications about the Church Street and Edgware Road area and will exist as a growing archive of the neighbourhood.
The shelf was born out of the need to share the vast amount of materials produced by art organisations, academic institutions, individual practitioners and researchers about the neighbourhood, with the public that constitutes it. The shelf is designed by Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad, and invites donations of any publications or materials about the area.
Coinciding with the launch of the Local Projects Shelf, the event willlaunch Studies on a Road, a series of pamphlets documenting projects commissioned through the Serpentine Galleries’ Edgware Road Project as well as Action of Street/Action of Room a publication by students from Westminster Academy and artists Febrik.
Publication contributors will discuss their projects and we will share our experiences of living and working in the neighbourhood over food from the market.
Included in the pamphlet series is the Re-Assembly project, the four year collaboration between St Marylebone School, Ultra-Red and the Serpentine Gallery
