Production: To Outsource or Not To Outsource?

Participating artists include: James Capper, James Balmforth, Mohammed Qasim Ashfaq.

Outsourcing work has become an integral part of many artistic practices. The construction of large scale and monumental pieces has become easier with the help of large studios of artist assistants and technicians. However, many artists reject this growing trend and prefer to do everything by hand, preserving the DIY tradition of art production. South London based artists James Capper and James Balmforth are artists who keep the tradition strong with their use of welding and carpentry, while Aberdeen born, London based Artist Mohammed Qasim Ashfaq embraces technology in his practice. In this Salon these artists will investigate the benefits and the drawbacks of artistic production in contemporary art.
