The Mongolia Project!
Anna-Louise Hale, Fine Art BA (Hons), Central Saint Martins; Byam Shaw is director of The Mongolia Project! Since graduating she has continued to create work as a freelance artist in set design, predominantly as Lead Set Designer with RIFT Theatre Company on their overnight adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth in Poplar 2014 – however her heart still lies with contemporary art. After a two month adventure alone to Mongolia in 2012, the Mongolia Project was born, in order to say thank you to the talented artists she met on her way.
The Mongolia Project will be the first non-commercial contemporary art exhibition in the UK for Mongolian and international artists inspired by the country. The exhibition and events will be held in conjunction with ART HUB Gallery in October 2015 and as part of the Deptford X Art Festival in September 2015. After two years of organisation, they now need your help on Kickstarter to raise £5000!
Anna is supported by a team and group of ten artists, who invite you to explore modern Mongolia, its history, and the challenges it faces through visual, auditory and kinaesthetic means; talks, activities and participation. There are three main aspects of the project, the exhibition, events and a trip that Anna and a colleague will take later this year to Mongolia in order to work with the University of Art and Culture in Ulaanbaatar.
