"Cabinet Stories is about taking exhibitions directly to the audience"
In collaboration with the Social Responsibility team at LCF, Curator Alison Moloney devised and produced Cabinet Stories – a travelling exhibition for audiences who have little access to the arts. The cabinet became a ‘venue’ where 7 displays, curated by UAL and external curators, were presented one after the other. Cabinet Stories travelled to HMP Holloway, East London NHS Foundation Trust and Anchor Silk Court – a home for older people. At each venue the curator led a talk or workshop based on their cabinet exhibition. Cabinet Stories opened to the wider public in an Emmaus charity shop in Poplar, East London, where all 7 exhibitions were displayed at the same time alongside free workshops for the local community.
Moloney is a nomadic curator whose exhibitions have a strong emphasis on widening participation. Plans are now underway to tour this travelling cabinet internationally.
