Staking Claims on the Distance is an online exhibition and a public art commission that discusses ideas around public spaces, ownership, monuments and hostile architecture. As part of Overmorrow, The NewBridge Project is commissioning a piece of public furniture that invites social relationships as a permanent monument to the present. The monument memorialises society here and now by enabling people to encounter each other. This space will encourage welcome without hostility, by celebrating the ideologies around building collective futures.
Artists: Esther Gamsu, Micky Fenton, TOTALLER
