Abandon Normal Devices (AND) is a nomadic commissioner and born-digital producer unafraid to enter new territories and broker new partnerships.
We propose a significant shift in the way that art is experienced through staging projects that spill out of the gallery and into the ‘street’. Our portfolio includes the UK’s only roaming festival, which takes place in a new location every edition and an annual commissioning programme, which can take the form of public art, site specific film happenings and cross platform productions.
Abandon Normal Devices has commissioned 100 new works and has worked with pioneering and award winning artists, which now amounts to over 300 contemporary artists including Aram Bartholl, Eva and Franco Mattes, the award winning Julian Oliver, Brody Condon, Molleindustria, Ubermorgan, HeHe, Andrew Kötting, Nkisi, Beatrice Dillon, Oneohtrix Point Never, Matthew Plummer-Fernandez, Heath Bunting, Oreet Ashery, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Carolee Schneeman, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Gillian Wearing, Phil Collins, Rafael Lozano Hemmer, The Yes Men. Works have toured internationally to Germany, China, Indonesia, USA, Italy, and Australia, as well as across the UK.
