Under Object Exchange – Art on the Underground Young Curators Project
Ania Bas, a magazine by young people from London
October 2015 – April 2016
Object Exchange was commissioned by Art on the Underground in collaboration with Black Cultural Archives and William Morris Gallery.
Led by artist Ania Bas, young people, aged 16–22, went behind the scenes at Black Cultural Archives in Brixton and William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow to learn about each museum’s collections. Workshops in traditional and contemporary printing techniques alongside meetings with professional practitioners from graphic design and journalism, led to the creation of a magazine ‘Object Exchange: More Than A Copy’.
Inspired by the newspapers and magazines handed out to Tube customers every day, ‘Object Exchange: More Than A Copy’ will launch on Saturday 2 April 2016 simultaneously at Brixton and Walthamstow Underground stations. Following its launch the magazine will be exhibited in each museum throughout April 2016, offering visitors the opportunity to pick up a free copy of the magazine while exploring the collections that inspired its making.
