“Tear and Share”

Artists give work to be broken down and added to the mixture for free street level distribution to the public.

The Hoxton Square Gallery exists in and promotes the use of all shared public space as a valid place to show ones art. Work is not sold. However giving work away for nothing and bartering is actively encouraged. Artists are expected to be present with their work

A major ongoing project  titled “Tear and Share” involves artists both known and unknown donating  works to the gallery with the knowledge that they will be broken down into smaller pieces and mixed together with other artists work. The resulting mix portioned off into small plastic sealed bags is being distributed globally to people at street level. Descriptions and suggestions as to how to use the mix are given to an audience that may normally have little contact with contemporary art.
