Keep Going, Immediately is an invitation to discuss, dissect and divert from conventionally defined polarities of success and failure.
Whether motivated by belief in emancipatory individualism or utopian democracy, advertising and communications mantras reiterate that everything and anything is possible if only we keep going, immediately.
“what are the measures of success?” “what does success look like?”

From 2.30pm – 5.30pm, presentations, performative actions and debate with artists, writers and curators examine notions of being successful, being fringe and getting on with it, examining the transplantation of management speak and instrumental values to the wider context of contemporary ideology, and precarious nature of cultural activity. In conjunction with Grunts for the Arts, Counterproductions and /seconds.

From 6.30pm, Rational Rec will take over the space to present the second of three public dialogues connected to the Rational Rec 2010 commission. Artists Emma Hart, Paul B Davis and Charlie Fox will discuss the progress of their collaborative commission, reflecting on the relationship between process and outcome, as well as exploring the expectations of those who commissioned them.
