Turn The Tide is an offshore company operating from a boardroom temporarily based in the Dyson Gallery at the Royal College of Art. In this office environment, constructed from newly commissioned and existing works by international artists, members of the public are invited to take ownership of the company by participating in a series of public board meetings. Through a series of live discussions Turn The Tide aims to establish a fluid space to explore how new, more flexible models of citizenship can be reached through sharing the company’s ownership.
Turn The Tide’s temporary boardroom has been produced by Eva Barto, Julie Béna, Jesse Darling, Martti Kalliala, Christopher Kulendran Thomas, Aron Kullander-Östling / Centre of Nowhere and John Menick.
Curated by Vittoria Bonifati, Margaux Bonopera, Gerardo Chavez-Maza, Elisabeth Del Prete, Cédric Fauq, Umay Mammadzada and Cristina Vasilescu as part of the Curating Contemporary Art programme Graduate Projects 2017, Royal College of Art.
Turn The Tide is supported by Nicoletta Fiorucci, Founder of Fiorucci Art Trust, Fluxus Art Fund and the Institut Français du Royaume-Uni.
