Over Time

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

A visual arts project about time passing, curated by Anne Robinson. There are ten artists taking part, working across a range of media including painting, film, performance and animation.

Each one will make a response to spending precisely the same fixed amount of ‘clock time‘ in specific stretch of the Thames foreshore around Enderby’s Wharf, during the weeks and months leading into the exhibition/performance period. The work derived from time spent in this historically resonant and atmospheric riverside space will result in a weekend of activities: 13th and 14th September, 2014 and an exhibition at the University of Greenwich 18th September to 16th October There will also be a day of performance and film works at the National Maritime Museum on Sunday 26th October. All of the invited artists are already engaged in some way in working with aspects of temporality, such as perception, elasticity, affect, politics, recording and value.

The space on the foreshore is particularly important to the project because of the richness of the layers of time visible there – the current rapidly changing landscape, the natural markers, the tides and the bend of the river and the industrial heritage and history, including the site where the first underwater telegraph cables were laid. We are also working with local contacts to set up workshops responding directly to this environment in light of imminent changes. The project is being developed in collaboration with Ian Thompson, sound artist based at the University of Greenwich and The Facility Creative Practice as Research group at London Met University. The other confirmed artists are: Rachel Gomme, Ian Thompson, Claudia Firth, Charlie Fox, Sarah Sparkes, The INternational Western Victoria Gray, Katharine Fry and Gavin Maughfling, Jo David and Birgitta Hosea all of whom have outstanding reputations in their various fields, including performance digital animation, dance and sound and have been involved in arts projects of international standing.

100 Stories of Migration

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

In 2013, A competition run in association with the Guardian asked for images that said something about migration to the people submitting them. It attracted about 900 contributions, from amateur and professional photographers, all of whom wrote about why they had selected that particular image. From these contributions, a judging panel selected 100 images they considered the most resonant, and these formed the basis of this exhibition, first displayed in Hackney and subsequently, Senate House (London), the offices of Freedom from Torture and the School of Museum Studies in Leicester University. The exhibition has now come to the Heritage Gallery in The Old Royal Naval College, University of Greenwich.

Friday, March 6th, 2015

Infinite States Exhibition

U20 Infinite States Poster

Unit 20 [MArch] presents Infinite States Work in Progress; a temporary exhibition consisting of a series of architectural models and drawings. The exhibition explores new modes of spatial representation which determines relationships between the Royal Museums Greenwich, National Maritime Museum collection, and the wider context of East Greenwich. The objective of this project is to reveal how the objects of the collection are imbued with complex relationships to the landscape of East Greenwich, and how the ‘unpacking’ of those objects can be used as a design mechanism for a new architectural vision.

Private View: Wednesday 11th March 6-9pm
Talks: Wednesday 11th March 7-8pm
Exhibition Open Daily: Wed 11th – Sat 14th March 2015 [10.00am – 6.00pm]

Stockwell Depot 1967 – 79

Saturday, July 4th, 2015

Note: Exhibition opens Tuesday – Saturday 11 am – 5 pm (closed Saturday 29 August).

Founded in 1967, Stockwell Depot heralded the emergence of the London artists’ studio movement and gained international recognition as a centre for abstraction in Britain. For over 25 years, this disused former brewery in south London functioned as a co-operative studio and exhibition space. Artists associated with the Depot – Roland Brener, Jennifer Durrant, David Evison, Katherine Gili, Peter Hide and Roelof Louw, amongst many others – held differing and often competing attitudes towards art. The ambitious work made and shown at the Depot tells the story of late modernism in Britain, tracing a period full of formal experimentation and critical debate.

Reviews of the exhibition: 1) Art Monthly (Sept. 2015); 2) Corrina Lotz: interview with Sam Cornish and review Here

The exhibition and associated publication have been made possible through the generous support of the following funders:
