Never Set Eyes on the Land

Friday, April 26th, 2019

The Partition of India in 1947 resulted in the largest mass migration in human history. 14 million Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and Christians, were displaced. This lit the fuse for a series of events that not only changed the Sub-Continent but also Britain forever. Partition carries a living legacy in the UK and across the world and this is one of the last opportunities to hear and learn directly from the generation who experienced this climatic upheaval.

Never Set Eyes (on the Land) follows the 2016 production of Dr Blighty exploring the story of wounded WW1 Indian soldiers who convalesced in the Royal Pavilion Brighton. The exhibition takes its name from a line in W.H. Auden’s caustic poem, ‘Partition’, written 20 years after the boundary lines of the Sub-Continent was drawn up by a British civil servant.

Capturing a part of this momentous event in 20th-century history, Nutkhut has worked—supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund—with Partition survivors, community groups, schools, heritage volunteers and artists to create this installation.

This exhibition is open at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery from 30th April to 17th May 2019 | Free

Private View: Wednesday 8th May, 6 pm.

Emotion in Abstract Animation: designing a new form of visual music

Thursday, March 28th, 2019

Singing Light (Watkins, 2018) Photo Luca Portik

Emotion in Abstract Animation: designing a new form of visual music by Julie Watkins will feature Singing Light-1 and Singing Light-2.

Julie Watkins is a PhD Candidate and Senior Lecturer in Film and Television at the University of Greenwich

Singing Light-1 will be installed in the Television Studio. In a dark spacious room, a projector throws strong white animations onto the black walls and white flags. A fine haze fills the air. Looking at the walls and flags you see shapes animating as if responding to a voice, but if you step into the animation and look back in the direction of the projector the light forms ever-changing tunnels. Draw your fingers through the mist, touch the light and create shadows, as if touching a running stream. Singing Light-2 will be transposed in the Gallery by being projected on to multiple translucent screens, allowing a different journey.

Singing Light is sung wordlessly and fused with abstract animation through composing motion, using audio-image units, sound and space and celebrating the human voice. It develops a methodology for creating pieces that afford soft fascination.

Singing Light is the result of a framework I developed for composing visual music from an animator’s perspective, to create non-narrative visual music with emotional impact. The significance of the framework is that visual music is freed from musical structures, which opens the visual music composition framework to artists, animators and performers. I am already publishing and adding knowledge to creative communities via international journals of contemporary artistic practice and research and in communities concerned with art, music, dance, theatre and the sciences. The aim is to generate both general interest and special interest from those who are involved in: visual music, light art, abstract animation, installation art, experimental film, soundscapes, wordless singing and vocal practice and theory.

Greenwich Portraits 2019

Saturday, February 9th, 2019

PLEASE NOTE: Stockwell Street Building, including the Stephen Lawrence Gallery where this exhibition is held, will be closed on Saturday 23 February due to essential power maintenance work. The Gallery will reopen as usual on Tuesday 26th February.

The fourth instalment of the University of Greenwich’s annual celebration of outstanding alumni and current students.

This exhibition, curated by current University of Greenwich student Jake Maynard, showcases 16 new photographic portraits taken by Diane Patrice. Each participant’s story reflects on their journeys before, during and after Greenwich and celebrates the impacts they are all making in their chosen fields.

The beautiful portraits developed each year as part of the project have become a ubiquitous sight on around the university and are a daily reminder to students, staff and local community of the power of a Greenwich education. This year’s exhibition features one of the first female Anglican Bishops, a fraternal football management duo, a lunar pioneer and a BAFTA award-winning TV producer—displayed alongside future stars from our current crop of students and other outstanding alumni who are making significant impacts in their chosen fields.

This exhibition is open from 21 February to 15 March 2019 | Free | All welcome

Located in the Stephen Lawrence Gallery at 10 Stockwell Street SE10 9BD

Open Tuesday – Friday 11:00am – 5:00pm, Saturday 11:00am – 4:00pm.
