RCA Society

Boxed in Time - an RCA Society event

Sunday 20th June 2010 • from 2pm

The Box: Conceptual, abstract, ultra real, poetic are just a few of the possible meanings to signify ‘Boxed in Time’... anything goes. Translate your thoughts into a ‘box’ - but it should be no bigger than a ‘chair seat’.

The Event: Bring of send your box (but make sure they are there on the event day) and come for some drink and food in a hidden but great east London gallery - the AND Event Space. Give away a ‘Box’ - At one level it’s a stack or line up of boxes in a gallery space for viewing, at another it’s a gathering opportunity to reveal the contents. Take away someone else’s box to walk away with.

Event mechanics: Participation fee is £5 per member - to be paid “on the door” (helps cover costs for the event + you do get an ‘exchange’). Use this event as a reason to communicate with another RCA Society member, by arranging to meet up with other members at the event, finding some one to deliver your box or delivering someone else’s box to the event, or simply by bringing it along yourself (on the day or before) and then have it whisked away from you to add to the growing stack of boxes in the gallery space to be redistributed through a ‘raffle’ at the event. The event is open to RCA Society members, associates, friends and partners... BUT each must submit a ‘box’ and pay the £5 fee if you attend the event. Your box is wanted whether you come or not. (no fee if you don’t attend). Boxes are welcome worldwide.

Anonymity of the box is the thing

To ensure this a unique display number will be issued and displayed on the box (and contents/parts). Obtain the number from David Sherriff (main organiser). For those curious about the creator’s identity all will be revealed later on the Society’s website. The more “famous(!)” members please note - there is no implied value, the box is supplied ‘as is’ and of course there are no liabilities for any consequences. Whoever gets a box in return at the event is the new owner and is free to sell-it, bin-it, or keep-it - that’s entirely up to the new owner.
