Library Shelf Location 07.CRAW
Publication Date 18 Mar 2017

Presented as an evaluation, Somersault is an exploration of the experience of taking part in All Sided Games (2013—15) by Julie Crawshaw, commissioned by Collective.

Somersault supports the understanding of what taking part in All Sided Games meant to participants and experiments with how evaluations might better capture the complexity of the relational associations of participating as part of an artwork.

All Sided Games set out to find new ways to work with families in their locality, seeking out areas of mutual interest by thinking and acting through the production and presentation of art. Six artist commissions by Jacob Dahlgren, Mitch Miller, Cristina Lucas, Nils Norman & Assemble, Florrie James and Dennis McNulty brought artists, individuals and groups together in and around venues built or used for the Edinburgh 1970 and 1986 Commonwealth Games and the Glasgow 2014 Games. The project also explored and expanded on ideas of the local through How Near is Here? a symposium and intensive programme.
