The twentieth in our series following artist-led initiatives around the UK and our first interview recorded in the Rea Garden in Digbeth, Birmingham where [insertspace] have commissioned Project Pigeon.

[insertspace] is an independant curatorial project based in Birmingham, which commissions artists to make new work, often for public sites and contexts.

[insertspace] was founded in 2005, by Cheryl Jones, Charlotte Smith and Matt Westbrook, initially setting out to explore the relationship between art and audience.

Since the interview in September 2009, Cheryl & Matt have┬átaken a break from doing [insertspace] to concentrate on Grand Union – Cheryl curates there and Matt is a studio holder. It opened in March 2010 officially with Cheryl working on an exhibition with Jamie Shovlin that will opened in September. There’s more info at on the background of the organisation if you need it.
