Koki Tanaka, Dialogue to the Public (JR Yamanote Line, Tokyo), 2012

Journal: Precarious Tasks #9, 24hrs Gathering Activity 1: Reading to the Public

27 Jun 2014

The opening public event of Koki Tanaka’s Precarious Tasks #9: 24hrs Gathering is inspired by Tristan Tzara reading to the crowd at St Julien le Pauvre church, Paris (1921). The event invites members of the public to meet at the ICA Box Office and bring their favourite book to be read aloud in St James's Park.

Please meet at the ICA Box Office at 12pm - the event starts at 12.30pm.

Please bring a book with you. As this event will take place in a public space, bring a text that is suitable to read to any audience.

Part of Koki Tanaka's Precarious Tasks #9, a series of events over a period of 24hrs that he refers to as ‘actions’. The events are programmed within a loose framework shaped by communal involvement and group experiences of everyday rituals that refer to past iterations of his ongoing series of works entitled Precarious Tasks. Audiences are welcome to drop in and out of the events throughout the day and night.

In partnership with ArtWorks: Developing Practice in Participatory Settings, a Paul Hamlyn Special Initiative.
