About Tangent Projects
Tangent Projects is a curatorial initiative, originally founded by Laura Tammen and Tsering Frykman-Glen*, set up to work with national and international emerging and mid-career artists on site responsive exhibitions and projects.
With a desire to add multiplicity to the current art archetype, Tangent Projects endeavours to showcase exemplary works in a variety of different media and platforms - including books, exhibitions, performance and on-line commissions. Our intent is to invite artists to explore "tangents" or diversions within their practice.
In offering the opportunity for digressions to be pursued, ideas and processes that might normally have been discarded in favour of the main discourse, will have the potential to reach a conclusion. Without a commercial bias and with experimentation encouraged, Tangent Projects proposes the prospect for artists to develop the deviations within their artistic dialogue.
In simple terms, to give artists the leeway to "go off on a tangent".
*Update - In early 2019 there were some big changes, Laura left and Tangent Projects became a cultural association under the guidance of Tsering. After renting an old garage in the Santa Eulalia area of L’Hospitalet del Llobregat, Tsering spent the next few months setting up a small artist driven space with the remit of not only offering an exhibition space for artists to experiment with their practice but also a space to act as a counterpoint to the current gallery model by actively seek to redress and challenge inequality within the arts by exhibiting work by artists that are all too often marginalised. In order for this ideology to be at the forefront of what we do, Tangent Projects is currently in the process of setting up a “think tank/steering group”, if you are interested in being considered for that group, please do get in touch. Within this new art space there are 7 “cost price” artist studios and a small art gallery/project space. The gallery opened in June 2019.
Get in touch - If you would like to visit Tangent Projects, the gallery hours are Tuesday to Friday 11-15.30 or by appointment. Carrer Marti Codolar 41 - 43, 08902, L’Hospitalet del Llobregat, nearest metro is Santa Eulalia.
