Edgware Road:Findings

Edgware Road: Findings.
An evening of sound and images from the Edgware road.

Saturday, 18 April

at the new
Centre for Possible Studies
14 Porchester Place, W2 2BS (off Kendal Street)

(this is an invitee-only event)

Shaina, Ashok, Amal and Janna would like to invite you to spend an evening with us, and view some materials from our recent research on the commercial and cultural landscape of the Edgware Road. We have been collecting a lot of  stories and "evidence" around the deep changes this street has seen in the past century, including at the Old English Gentleman (for a century known as King's Head, now lebanese-owned, 132 edgware road) and the Shishawy restaurant (formerly Gala Royal cinema, then Arabic Centre, Arrimal nightclub, Hilal House and Miramar, 51-53 edgware road).

These fragments mark the beginning of a web-based and printing project by the Bombay-based artists group CAMP, as part of the Edgware Road Project: a Serpentine Gallery initiative in collaboration with Ashkal Alwan – The Lebanese Association for Plastic Arts, Beirut, and Townhouse Gallery, Cairo.

with many thanks to:
Edgware Road Association, Al Arez staff, Shishawy staff,
and the many people in the neighbourhood who have already been generous with their time and timelines.

The Edgware Road Project

CAMP is involved in a 2-year "print-from-web" project, linked to its own investigations of the infrastructures of commerce and pleasure in this part of London. As part of the first "block study", we looked at several buildings and their ownership and use histories, and produced a series of tablemats.

The web-based part of the project resides at http://edgwareroad.org. ( now at Print.with.camp ) This website collects materials from various such "studies", conducted by us and others, which then are collaboratively edited and published in a number of physical forms: volumes, pamphlets and placemats. This is an ongoing project, as part of the Serpentine Gallery's Public Program.
