Chronic Epoch

Chronic Epoch

Margaret Garlake

From the first organisational forays within the creative partnership of David Crawforth and Naomi Siderfin culminating in the Nosepaint events of the early 90s, this book then follows their journey from Nosepaint to the formal opening of Beaconsfield in September 1995 to the present, profiling how each project and initiative was approached with the same ethic and ethos throughout a collective 'Chronic Epoch' ... Chronic Epoch relays the story of a space constructed with a desire to 'fill a niche between the institution, the commercial and the 'alternative'. The book shows how Beaconsfield has sustained its own ethical and artistic standards throughout and fostered a fresh take on contemporary art in the process.
