Formerly home to The Museum Of, The Bargehouse is a venue supportive of variety. A collection of rooms and spaces over 4 floors, its past lives and uses are easily traced. The flaking & ageing of the building in itself is a fascinating adornment to its new life as an arts space, an ideal playground. Not all artists are affiliated with a gallery, not all art belongs in one. Experience more than exhibition,
Mutiny at The Bargehouse is about breaking the surface to catch a glimpse of what’s going on underneath. "Making things happen, we take chances. We want to take creative risks, inspire ourselves in the process and anyone else that cares to jump the ride". Event Director, Alison Trower
LOSTPROPERTY is dedicated to collaborative explorations across genres that showcase a wealth of talent and diversity. The result being electric, fully charged performances for the public and exposure for artists. The group sees its role as an ‘artists’ switchboard’ and enabler, providing artists with diverse and challenging opportunities to create new work for public engagement.
Interactions between performers and artists mean every event has a life of its own that can’t be predicted. Mutiny offers a passport to an ongoing undercurrent of artistic activity, an antidote to shiny, packaged fairs and galleries.
The reality is that art matters, its not just show and hype. Artists are compelled to do what they do whether you notice or not. Irrepressible LOSTPROPERTY invite audiences to take a look at what’s been going on unseen around them.
"A hugely stimulating exhibition, full of colour and energy, which proves there is
a strong and varied underground art scene performing in exciting locations"
Liza Harrington – Producer, Carlton Television 360°
"Lost Property came out with all guns blazing. An all singing, all dancing show
– an intravenous shot of passion into art’s fleshy arse"
Nick Hackworth, Art Critic – Evening Standard 360°
LOSTPROPERTY promises more of the same.
