Arts collective Tether need you as an artistic collaborator…

As part of Freerange Festival 08 - eight weeks of exhibitions, housed in the cavernous splendour of Brick Lane’s Old Truman Brewery and featuring over 3000 of the UK’s leading graduate artists - Tether will be producing a five day collaborative show entitled All Smoke and No Fire.

The show, which comprises artworks created collaboratively by Tether members, focuses on the process of artistic compromise, and reflects upon Tether’s own efforts to attempt to live up to the expectation present when working on large-scale projects.

Many of the works in All Smoke and No Fire have a strong performative element, which will call for the involvement of volunteer contributors, namely, you.

Tether requires the help of eager, reliable individuals who are available to give at least one day, between Thu 29 May and Tue 3 Jun, to contribute to All Smoke and No Fire as artistic collaborators. No experience in performance is required, and you can be involved for as many days as you want; although most help is required on the evening of Thu 29 May, for the Private View.

As well as these creative roles, there are also spaces available for volunteer invigilators, who would help maintain the running of the show as support staff, over as many of the five days as they are able to offer.

Taking part in All Smoke and No Fire offers you the chance to gain invaluable experience, learning from one of the UK’s foremost emerging artist groups, whilst being involved in one of Europe’s largest art events.

Tether is a Nottingham-based artist collective, started by Nottingham Trent graduates in July 2007, which now incorporates practitioners from various backgrounds.
