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”.

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

Join the artists Catherine HoffmanEmmanuelle Loiselle, Sarm Miccichè and ‘Home is not My Home’ by Dr Joyce Jiang, Tassia Kobylinska & The Voice of Domestic Workers, of the exhibition Keep the Door of My Lips, as they discuss the impact of ‘work’ on their own artistic practice and individual identity.

Chaired by Keep the Door of My Lips curators Professor Andrew King and Connie Gallagher this open discussion will follow the many topics that this exhibition covers; including, but not confined to, work, working conditions, the effects of work, escape from work, being without work, gender and work, ethnicity and work, and class and work.

Keep the Door of My Lips is an exhibition curated by Professor Andrew King and Connie Gallagher that explores the continuing influence of Victorian ideas about ‘work’. Displaying images from Victorian periodicals and trade magazines alongside research by Professor Andrew King and featured artworks, this exhibition – by turns beautiful, heroic, shocking, comforting, unsettling – wants to get us to think about what work really means for us.
