PING PONG BAR: the two Jonnys redesigned by guests
one night only - @ Central Reservation / Bristol
5 Jun 2010

The two Jonnys were invited to produce a project for artist-led space Central Reservation in Bristol:

Seeing their London based project space's ping pong table and cocktail bar as a social framework to take on tour,
the two Jonnys have commissioned artists to redesign the elements of this social hardware for the Jonnys to then
manufacture on site at Central reservation. Thus enabling them to transport no pre-existing artwork to Bristol, nor
requiring them to return anything to London. These collaborative artworks will have drinks and balls served on them
throughout the evening, and provide a social framework for future Central Reservation events.
