Possible Architectures

Tuesday, October 15th, 2019

An exhibition of non-objective, reductive and systems-based art.

The first experience of seeing work and its immediate impact on the viewer within an architectural context has always been a specific consideration for the curators, Patrick Morrissey and Hanz Hancock.

The curators state: “Geometric form is a language that elicits an immediate response whether in relation to work on paper, interior design, furniture design, sculpture or the wider architectural environment. Repetition, pattern and structure are recognisable and identifiable cultural signifiers, universally accessible and familiar across political and social divides. Geometric, systems, minimalist and non-objective art have long been associated with and regarded as typifying developments in the design movements of the early to mid-twentieth century. However, the physical, material and creative characteristics contained or displayed by the work in this exhibition – whether intended or by coincidence – reflect qualities or concerns that are still relevant to today’s rapidly changing physical and social contexts. The works chosen for this exhibition reflect these considerations and are by definition both contemplative and conceptual in the broadest sense.

Each work presented in Possible Architectures represents a constant process-led exploration of conceptual space within the developing post-minimalist universal canon and will include contextual information explaining the processes (algorithms, procedures, codes and keys) used to make them”.

Celebrating 15 Years of Screentest

Friday, September 27th, 2019

This year marks the 15th anniversary of Screentest: The National Student Film Festival, making it the longest-running fest of its kind. For the occasion, the School of Design has inaugurated an exhibition showcasing the achievements of students and their works in 15 years of Screentest.

Screentest: The National Student Film Festival in 2017, Stockwell St. Building, University of Greenwich

Screentest is a platform for promoting and exhibiting young filmmaking talent across the UK. The annual weekend event features industry workshops and panels. The highlight of the festival is the Award Ceremony (of course!) which is like the Oscars – only it’s on a student budget! It was founded at Bristol University in 2004 and relocated to London in 2011 where it enjoyed another 5 brilliant years at London Southbank University. It is now part of the University of Greenwich. The nest iteration of the festival will be held in Stockwell Street’ School of Design on 15/16 November 2019.

Our Project Space is currently hosting a selection of films and posters celebrating the talent of the students who have have been awarded Screentest Prizes in previous years.

Diversity + Inclusivity by Design: Empowering Individuals

Monday, September 2nd, 2019

This exhibition reflects on developments in diversity and inclusivity by design in the current creative Cypriot landscape.

The exhibition showcases co-design research and explores how diverse and inclusive design become the ultimate communication tool to connect the world to go beyond expected boundaries, through a range of trans-disciplinary approaches that positively impact our social and political landscapes. These works share a common objective: What is enabled when designers design with, and for, others?

The Practice Design Researchers have been collectively selected by the exhibition curators, Dr Anastasios Maragiannis, Deputy Head of the School of Design at the University of Greenwich, Dr Marios Psaras, Cultural Counsellor at the Cyprus High Commission, and researcher-designer Mala Siamptani (UAL)

Featured artists: Maya Angeli (Set Design), Alina Babaletsos (Flower Performance Design), Alexandros Kosmidis (Communication Design), Maria Papaleontiou (Architecture), Stacey Pitsillides (Design Research), Magdalene Theodorou (Fashion Design), and Mala Siamptani (Participatory Wearables).

Register your free place here for the Private View and panel discussion on Thursday 19 September, 6-9 pm.

Diversity + Inclusivity by Design: Empowering Individuals is part of London Design Festival ’19

Fast Forward to the Analogue: Vintage Immersions

Tuesday, June 25th, 2019

Fast Forward to the Analogue: Vintage Immersions explores analogue choices in present-day artistic practice.

The analogue is often presented as what preceded the digital. However, the revival of analogue techniques and aesthetic bears witness to a range of practices that operate past the mere opposite of digital technologies. The exhibition examines how those choices are embedded within an interdisciplinary framework.

Launching on the evening of Tuesday 2nd July at the University of Greenwich Galleries’ Project Space, this exhibition invites artists and researchers from different disciplines to respond to the notion of the analogue as a concept and/or practice.

Works by Mihalis Arfaras, Patrick Beveridge, Eleanor Dare, Carla Garcia, Jim Hobbs, Andrew Knight-Hill, Gabriel Menotti, Dani Ploeger, Audrey Samson, Systaime, Michael Talbot, and extracts from the Cinemathèque Française.


Exhibition extended until Tuesday 3 September 2019.


Curated by Elena Papadaki.
