Unannounced Acts of Publicness

During May 2015 ten artworks appeared unannounced on ten days in Granary Square, London. The audience was anyone present – those passing through on their commute, eating lunch, playing in the fountains, having an office break, carrying out deliveries, cleaning the square, making their way home from dancing all night – who encountered the works as part of everyday life. On June 1st the acts were announced alongside images and responses.

Unannounced Acts of Publicness was devised and produced by Tilly Fowler, Anna Hart and Dean Kenning. The commissioned artists were Margot Bannerman, Leo Chadburn, Siobhan Davies, Shaun Doyle, Georgia Gendall, Anna Hart, Dean Kenning, Matt Lewis, Ruth Maclennan, Mally Mallinson, Hassen Rasool, Jo Scandrett, Alex Schady, Frances Scott, Matthias Sperling. The production costs were supported by Restless Futures at Central Saint Martins and Argent.
