UGO is a series of practice-research projects which focus on the ambiguity of the project space in site-specific, pedagogical and digital contexts to generate new learning as a collective troubleshooting experience.

UGO Project Space was a public art programme of large format site-specific artworks presented on an underused billboard as part of the British Art Show 8's Associate Programme (2016-17) in Southampton, UK. Three curated commissions were shown in a high exposure context, challenging local artists to consider key themes including: notions of the multi-site, parallels in regional industrial decline, and the Southampton celebrity. The project invited curators and commissioned artists to work in new territories and to generate new learning.
