Public Marketplace is a collective project that features six participatory ‘market stalls’ in Riverlight Estate’s outdoor gardens asking audience members to act as participants instead of consumers. Challenging the conventional meaning of ‘market’, Public Marketplace presents itself as an alternative trading ground for performative and interactive activities. Visitors are encouraged to act as participants by contributing to the production and negotiation of local cultural narratives in one of Europe’s largest redevelopment sites.
Presented by curators Marcel Darienzo, Elisabeth Del Prete, Johanna Hardt, Håkon Lillegraven, and Cristina Vasilescu.
