Lethaby Gallery 2018

Make, Lethaby Gallery 3-7 July 2018

3-7 July 2018 | Lethaby Gallery

From 3-7 July, the Lethaby Gallery hosted a programme of workshops, talks and events dedicated to the actions of making, sharing, learning and listening. Equipped with creative, digital and non-digital tools, the gallery encouraged a productive learning environment through community.

The programme encouraged people to celebrate the power of making, discover new tools, materials and projects with guests and students and staff from across the College. The programme included open days for local community groups, tours, talks and workshops, including Women in Making which saw five women makers share their journeys into building a career in making.

5 – 26 April 2018 | Window Gallery 
9 – 20 April 2018 | Lethaby Gallery

One hundred years after the Representation of the People Act 1918, which extended voting rights to some women, issues of gender, race, access and inclusivity are back at the centre of public debate and turbulent global politics have reinvigorated engagement, fuelled participation and normalised dissent.

Taking the ideas of representation – and misrepresentation – as a starting point, this exhibition, which took place across the Window Galleries and Lethaby Gallery, brought together creative practitioners who challenge established norms, offer alternative perspectives and seek to bring about change.

Take a look at the exhibitions that have happened so far this year at the Lethaby Gallery.

Temporalities

20 February - 24 March 2018

Temporalities was an exhibition and event series which drew on the rich history of fine art moving image at the College and projected that practice into the future with Correspondence, a series of newly commissioned responses by current students to historical student film and video work.

Metadata - how we relate to images

10 January - 3 February 2018

Focusing on the role of metadata in art and art history, this exhibition shared contemporary reflections on the status of data, extending beyond the digital. Works ranged from interventions, such as Nora Al-Badri and Nikolai Nelles’ Nefertiti Hack Project, to the Arts & Crafts movement’s engagement with medieval ornament. Find out more about Metadata.
