Speculative Geologies is a collaborative project by Charlie Cousins and Fionn Duffy. They explore the performative process of research in response to a speculative meteor impact site that spans the North West Coast of Scotland.
This month we spoke to Olivia Ahmad, curator at House of Illustration, the only public art gallery in the UK dedicated to illustration. Based in Granary Square in King’s Cross since 2014, the gallery is about to celebrate its third birthday.
This year in line with the UK/India year of culture 2017 our festival Camden Kalā shines a spotlight on and celebrates India’s vibrant heritage both within Camden and beyond.
In Spring 2017, rarely displayed artworks from the Camden Art Collection were 3D-printed to provide a new way of looking at this fascinating collection. These 3D prints formed a ‘Museum in a Box’ which went on tour to Camden’s libraries and Great Ormond Street Hospital. During workshops children and their families could touch the 3D models and listen to artists’ audio interpretations of each object. The combination of the objects and audio then inspired stories, poems and sounds in response to the collection. Local resident Angela shares her experience of taking part in the Museum in a Box workshops with her son Lorenzo.
Co-curated by House of Illustration’s Olivia Ahmad with Isabelle Bricknall – Brocklehurst’s model and muse, this major retrospective exhibits a prolific output that has been little seen until now. 100 figurative portraits chronicle the subversion of subculture, exploring gender, sexuality and identity.
Artist Albert Potrony worked in collaboration with members of Abeona Housing Co-operative and volunteers from the local community on a yearlong project researching Camden’s squatting, short life and housing co-operative movement of the 70’s and 80’s.
Tall Tales was a national tour of 17 international women visual artists who playfully use storytelling techniques in the making of their work.
