Join us to hear Something & Son and Lucy Joyce discuss their respective practices and the development of new works of public art for Oxley Park and Newton Leys.

 

Something & Son is a London based practice founded by Andrew Merritt and Paul Smyth working across art, design and architecture. Their work is rooted in a inquisitiveness and experimentation reflecting their varied backgrounds and shared passion for socially driven and environmental projects that tackle the challenges of our time. 

 

A keenness to collaborate has led them to work alongside many different professions including swift experts, mushroom men, scrapyard merchants, farmers, horticulturalists, scientists and sociologists in the realisation of their projects.

 

Andy and Paul are also co-founders of Makerversity in London and Amsterdam.

 

Recent lectures, talks and workshops have included the Serpentine Gallery, Kunst-Werke (Berlin), the Science Museum Dana Centre, Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute (Zurich), Institute of Contemporary Art, the Barbican, SALT (Istanbul) and the Victoria & Albert Museum.
