The new exhibition at the Link Gallery (JRH) shows a documentation about a Chinese Take-Away with a difference, presented by ArtWash in association with Oxford Playhouse.
A lively interactive art production happened in June 2012 at Tsang's Kitchen in Oxford. The Chinese cook went home and ArtWash was in charge.
This night only, as part of ‘Oxford Playhouse Plays Out’ series a wide variety of artists (17 in total) created a menu of unique and very different art pieces. Each work fitted in a takeaway box and audience members who elected to take part in the performance could go home with their own original piece of art at the end of the evening.The fulfillment of a pledge in exchange for the art was the currency of the evening.
Innovative and fun for the audience. Just another ‘coup’ of ArtWash who started their very unique take on ‘art production and delivery’ in a laundrette in Headington.
ArtWash was created in 2003 by Kay Sentance, joined later by Barry Reeves and Ann Rapstoff. It is an artist-led inter-social platform that curates and facilitates art events, and with, non-art spaces and groups.
The exhibition will be at the Link Gallery until end of March.
