10:00-16:00 Thurs 24th-Sun 27th Aug 2017
Pavilion Gallery, RGS-IBG
We’ve been invited to re-value contemporary commodity cultures in Kensington and we’d love you to join us!
The MoCC shop-gallery will be installed into the Pavilion exhibition space at the RGS-IBG on Exhibition Road, London for four days in late August. Staffed by our friendly MoCC Invigilators, you’ll be able to browse the most valued exhibits, take our quiz, add something to the museum yourself and consult with the updated Mikayla 3.0 – our networked talking doll guide to all things MoCC. Two research and conversation events will also contribute to our continuing public conversations around the deep connections between data, trade, place and values.
Fri 25th Aug 10:00-12:30 Data Walkshop with data activist Alison Powell, LSE. Book here.
Building on MoCC walkshops in Finsbury Park and Exeter, Alison will be investigating data mediations in relation to trade and profit in the direct vicinity of the RGS-IBG through a process of rapid group ethnography. No experience necessary. The event is free, but places are very limited.
Friday 25th Aug 14:00-16:00 Our Future Heritage: curating contemporary commodity cultures. Book here.
A public conversation event hosted in the Museum of Contemporary Commodities shop-gallery space at the RGS-IBG. With contributions from: MoCC co-founders Paula Crutchlow and Ian Cook, Senior Curator V&A Corrinna Gardner, Cultural Geographer Merle Patchett, Music Sociologist Lee Marshall, and researcher, publisher and curator D-M Withers. The event is free, but places are limited.
All are welcome. Please join us to re-value contemporary commodity culture one thing at time!
