Laureana Toledo, the artist of new artist publication The Limit will be screening the film of the work at Chelsea College of Art, from 5.15pm. From 6pm the artist will be in conversation with D=Gavin Wade,the director of Eastside Projects, Birmingham.
Location: Lecture Theatre – Chelsea College of Arts and Design
Laureana Toledo introduces her fan documentary on The Limit – a (fictional) “Sheffield band from Mexico”. Followed by a conversation with curator Gavin Wade. ‘As a response to the commission of doing a piece of art in Sheffield addressed to an imaginary spectator that hates art, I decided to put together a cover band that would only play covers from bands from Sheffield – Pulp, Def Leppard, Human League, ABC, Joe Cocker and the Arctic Monkeys. The line up would be a very simple one: drums, guitar, bass, and a singer who played a little electronic piano. The band is named after a cult club in Sheffield, where most of the original bands had played, and that shut its doors in 1992; its members are musicians from four of the most important groups from the Mexican rock scene – Bengala, Zoé, DiscoRuido and Café Tacvba.
Very few people in England know of these bands. People in Mexico know lots of Sheffield bands (and from Birmingham, and from Manchester, and from Bristol…). Disguised as a 30 minute fan documentary, and accompanied by the publication of an artist book disguised as a magazine, The Limit investigates how information and pop culture are digested, how colonialism is still activating our fantasies and expectations, and how the secondary role of women around rock bands is funnily reversed.’
Over 300 people gathered to hear panel discussion on future of photojournalism, panel included Sophie Batterbury from The Independent and Gerry Badger, curator.
Monday 26th October saw a talk at the exhibition chaired by Jon Snow.

JT Project 09 is: seven distinct temporary exhibitions hosted by James Taylor Gallery, independently organised by Fieldgate Gallery, Five Years, James Taylor Gallery, Katie Guggenheim, Supine Studios, The Centre of the Universe and Transition Gallery. Spread over two floors of a huge building, the project provides the opportunity to see shows by these peer organisations simultaneously. JT Project 09 could be: an opportunity for new collaborations, a series of compromises, a grand experiment.
