ABOUT THE event
Invited to paint live in Tate Modern's Turbine Hall with the Scrawl Collective alongside Will Barras and Cat Johnston as part of No Soul for Sale – A Festival of Independents, Tate Modern’s 10th anniversary celebration (10-16 May 2010).
No Soul For Sale – A Festival of Independents was curated by Cecilia Alemani, Maurizio Cattelan and Massimiliano Gioni, and produced by Tate Modern.
No Soul For Sale was a festival that brought together non-profit centres, alternative institutions, artists’ collectives and underground enterprises from around the world. Neither a fair nor an exhibition, No Soul For Sale was a convention of individuals and groups who devote their energies to art they believe in, beyond the limits of the market and other logistical constraints – a celebration of the independent forces that animate contemporary art. The festival was an exercise in coexistence: organisations exhibit alongside one another without partitions or walls, creating a pop-up art village.
