What We Call Progress is a major exhibition of new commissions and one-off events by critically acclaimed artists and architects. The project explores and transforms the city, and spans two sites, London and Bristol.

Video, sound, photographs, the internet and off-site events challenge the ways we interact within urban environments, in relation to architecture, urban planning, transport systems, regeneration, geographical theory and art practices.

Gasworks will be an information centre, an exhibition venue and a base for surrounding events. In September 2000 the project travels to The Watershed Media Centre in Bristol.

Sam Brown takes the idea of regeneration to a new personal level. He gathers stray objects such as tin cans and bicycle wheels from the street, assesses their damage and repairs them before replacing them in their original sites.

Dan Holdsworth explores the relationship between the urban and the natural in a new series of sharp and glamorous photographs.

Inventory are a group of artists and writers. Based in a portable dome tent at a service station on the M4 between Bristol and London, they look at the idea of community by gathering material to display at Gasworks from motorway travellers and workers.

O.C.E.A.N. UK are an international architectural collective who examine mobile architecture with furniture-like work placed in streets around the gallery. 

Sophie Warren & Jonathon Mosley combine photographs and sound based on a petrol station on the M5 to investigate the architecture and increasing importance of motorway landscapes.

24 June - 2 July 2000
