It’s been a long strange summer. As things start to settle down into new routines that are anything but ordinary, we’ve been thinking about how we can work with artists on creative programmes without relying on what once seemed to be one of our most valuable assets; a large sociable, adaptable indoor space.
However, it seems, we can be sociable, and adaptable anywhere, so we have got loads coming up in our programme over the next few months. We have commissioned seven artists/groups to develop new work for our Intermission series, there are three more guest One-to-Ones this month with more to come later in the year, and we are developing online events with The Romani Cultural & Arts association and with the Jarman Award. We’re also building up our online resources with artist contributions and gearing up to get our Fellowship artists active in the building again. The gallery space may not be open again until 2021, but our programme is as busy as ever.
We hope this mix of things is welcome. If there is anything you want to see more of, features you want to see, suggestions or things you want featured, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org as early as possible and we’ll try to include them.
This bulletin is put together by the five of us left in the scattered g39 - still working from sofas and kitchen tables.
Keep safe and well,
When we're open again (!) the warp Library is open, a de-instututional resource for all. The collection mainly houses artist books, arts-related reference books, zines and pamphlets. These span from the socio-political to the experimental, from 60s avant-garde retrospectives to contemporary exhibition publications; and hopefully everything in between. This in an ever-developing, growing collection.
Really pleased to be hosting SURVEY II in 2021, and to be working with @jerwoodarts and @sitegallery again. A great line up of artists from Wales, Angharad Williams, Tako Taal and our own Cinzia Mutigli alongside brilliant artists Saelia Aparicio, Tereza Červeňová, Sadé Mica, Rebecca Moss, Katarzyna Perlak, Shenece Oretha and Nicolaas Van de Lande.
