MEAN I was presented at Shady Dealings with Language, X Marks the Bökship (at Matts Gallery), London on 6th July. This edition of Shady Dealings..., entitled 'Unsettled By And Open To', gestures toward research led arts practice and celebrates the emergent, unexpected and the unruly by inviting presentations from artist writers; Emma Bolland, Neil Chapman, Linda Stupart and Nathan Walker.

Unsettled By and Open To was the second event in the Shady Dealings With Language series. It was devised and produced by Claire Potter with writer and publisher David Berridge of VerySmallKitchen and is generously hosted at X Marks The Bokship, (at Matt's Gallery).
