local event :: Project Space

American artists Erin Jane Nelson and Ming Lin have recruited local artists Jordan Abel, Alex Grunenfelder, Heather Martin and David Semeniuk to transform Project Space into a free public art school from July 21, 2012 to July 25, 2012.

Exploring personal economy—particularly as it relates to art institutions and art education—the school will launch with talks by participating teachers and will close with an artist talk, exhibition of artworks produced by students and teachers and the release of Lesson Book, which will feature artists’ reflections on the project as well as step-by-step instructions for each of the classes delivered at the school.

Summer School will offer single- and multi-session classes on such topics as backstrap weaving, local flora, mushroom spore printing, indigo kites, air tasting, solar photograms, chapbooks, rainbow pasta and plastic crafts.

Nelson and Lin will curate artworks produced by students and teachers during the school into an exhibition. The evening will also act as the launch of Lesson Book.

field trip :: clerkenwell design week pt 1

Yesterday was another amazing day in London filled with blue skies and sunshine. The top shot was from the #87 bus which is a fantastic ride leaving Wandsworth through Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Tate Britain and drops you right in front of Covent Garden. We spent the way exploring Clerkwenwell for the Clerkwenwell Design Week which was amazing. After checking out the website to pre-register, I was most excited to check out the amazing venues that held most of the exhibitions and they did not disappoint!

Our first stop was the House of Detention where we had to pick up our registration packets. The House of Detention was once a Victorian prison dating back to 1616 and was known as a holding prison for those awaiting trial. Apparently, heavily haunted, it was then later re-opened as a private party venue. The nature of the space ensures that exhibitors present their products in new and exciting ways.
