Raquel will be collaborating with residents across Camden to produce a new installation at Swiss Cottage Gallery in the new year.
Love Camden loves its local talent. We aim to celebrate everything cultural in the borough, from Hampstead to Kilburn, from the British Library to that little café around the corner - we are always out to show what Camden has to offer. As part of this we launched our Camden Close-Up series: interviews with artists, thinkers, entrepreneurs and downright interesting figures that live, work or are inspired by the borough.
Curated by The Wiener Library in Russell Square, this exhibition at the Swiss Cottage Library explores aspects of resistance against Nazism and various manifestations of this resistance, from instances of organised rebellion, to examples of anti-Nazi jokes.
London Quilters are welcomed back for their eigth exhibition in Swiss Cottage Gallery. The large selection of quilts that are on display have been made and, in most cases, designed by the members of London Quilters. The quilts in this exhibition provide a significant insight into the broad spectrum of this art.

Camden Kalā and TARQ are proud to present “This burning land belongs to you.” This exhibition shows the works of artists Ronny Sen, Rithika Merchant and Soghra Khurasani. Each artist makes work about the India of today, highlighting and examining its contemporary moment. Through printmaking, photography and painting each artist reflects on the land, on how domestic and international conflicts complicate our relationship with the ground on which we live.
Stories brings together a group of pictures, whereby each photographed room is  witness to the shifting of time, to memories past and present; of space and connection, family and home. Minnie Weisz is a photographic artist and a Camden resident. Her studio is on Pancras Road, King’s Cross.
“I entered the Open Open to meet wonderful and amazing artists from all walks of life, be they hobbyists, professionals or just those who want to express and demonstrate emotions and ideas as well as imagination.” - Participant, 2016

Primarily based at Swiss Cottage Library Gallery for the duration of the residency, Frances Scott investigated how the environments of both institutions might be ‘read’ using different forms of knowledge, from the rational to the mystical.
Writing Table remodeled one of the interior furnishings that Swiss Cottage Library’s original architect, Basil Spence, designed for the library in 1964. Nine newly created versions of Basil Spence writing tables were dispersed throughout the library, to be used as tables by the public for the duration of the exhibition.
