Black& Common Culture at Verge Art Fair

Common Culture (UK) is a collaborative artists group: David Campbell, Mark Durden and Ian Brown.
They exhibit internationally, with previous solo shows in New York, Athens, Porto, London, Manchester, Belfast and Derry, and have participated in numerous international group exhibitions including Manifesta 8, now showing in Murcia, Spain, the 6th Shanghai Biennale 2006, and Shopping A Century of Art and Consumer Culture, Tate Liverpool, 2002.

Often collaborating with workers from the entertainment industry, Common Culture explore how social identity is constructed through rituals of commodity consumption within popular culture. In their work they engineer strategic collisions between elitist assumptions attached to Art and its institutions, and the perceived commonplace and vulgar aspects of popular culture. Previous work has addressed the issue of alienation and exploitation of workers as the logical, but culturally invisible, consequence of commodity consumption.
