All Systems Go brings together a diverse group of artists who work in relation to physical and conceptual systems, which they have created or adapted as frameworks for artistic experimentation. Patterns, rules, collaborative techniques, interventions, mechanical systems and improvisation provide structured starting points which open up a multitude of possibilities for exciting artistic outcomes.
This show is the latest in Departure Gallery’s acclaimed series of exhibitions and residencies on The International Trading Estate, Southall. The exhibition explores the contradictions and parallels between systematic experimentation in contemporary art and the industrial systems used in the factories and distribution units surrounding our vast warehouse space.
Address: Departure Gallery, 7 Trident Way, The International Trading Estate, Southall, UB2 5LF.
Getting There: Take national rail from Paddington to Southall (12mins), then buses 105, 195, H32 or 482 to Brent Road (5mins). Cross over and walk down Brent Road until you see the estate entrance. Ask the security guards in the cabin to direct you to warehouse 7 Trident Way. Trains and buses run regularly until midnight. On the private view night there will be a free taxi shuttle from Southall Station, Merrick Road (follow signs as you exit the station).
