Project exploring ideas around the gallery as studio space.

26 February - 21 March 2014

Into the Fold proposes what collaboration, education, discussion, participation and making might be. Changing the situation or situating a change by inviting emerging and established creative practitioners to be part of the project. 

An event questioning the ideology of the studio and gallery space, materialising in the form of an exhibition through a temporary and spontaneous community of practice. 

Can an exhibition be a combination of making and visual spaces, dismantling the language that separates these two entities to create one? 

Many creative disciplines are similar in expression, and to an extent, origination: art, design, film, architecture, composing, writing and so forth are all located through context and infrastructure. It is this blending of space, time, activity and motivation that Into the Fold will investigate. 

Into the Fold will begin with ten days of activity exploring five themes: 

  • Ideology
  • Place
  • Play
  • Language
  • Meta

The results of these activities will become the exhibition, with both students and creative practitioners taking part in the project. 

Camberwell Press event curated by This is Art.

A Practice For Everyday Life, An Endless Supply, Edgar–Walker, Nicolas Feldmeyer, Carmody Groarke, Fraser Muggeridge, Peter Nencini and Open School East.
