Wimbledon Art Gallery
Catherine Madden, a second year pupil on BA (Hons) art work: Painting, has curated a exhibition called ‘Space’ at Gallery 286. The exhibition will feature work by Cat including an array of other youthful music artists, each utilizing different mode of artistic appearance including photographs, textile and jewelry work, painting and sculpture. Each artwork explores different ways that every individual works closely with ‘space’and merges the boundaries among them; showing the cross-over of medias checking out a similar motif and pressing the tensions and harmonies between them.
We had a talk to Cat to generally share the convention and her experience curating it.
WCA: reveal a little bit regarding the event ‘Space’at Gallery 286
CM: my personal work stems around interesting rooms within our community; the urban hinterland, the edgelands…and I prefer room not merely among the impacts in my training, but as a fundamental piece of the way the work is exhibited. ‘Space’at Gallery 286 is on until 30th April and is an exhibition comprising of 13 musicians and developers just who in addition play with ‘space’as a style; in almost any of their contexts. The purpose associated with convention was to really show how the cross-disciplines in art and design could work very well when brought collectively. it's been exciting to see, through curating tv show, exactly how a running theme enables the contrasts within the work to hang alongside cohesively, and how the numerous refined and astonishing similarities within the work start bouncing off both, making it exciting when it comes to attention.
WCA: exactly how did you come to be a part of this convention?
CM: As part of ‘PPD’ (individual Professional developing Lectures) at Wimbledon, i desired to create a task made up of two contrasting exhibition spaces in order to find a varied range of artists in order to make work for the show. Operating out of a townhouse as well as a private home, Gallery 286 was a perfect alternative as one of the convention areas i possibly could make use of. it cann’t have the feeling of the standard gallery space and there have been features in each one of the spaces and hallways that actually changed the impact of this work, as well as managed to get rather an exciting challenge to curate!
WCA: Is this your first time curating while just how have you been finding it?
CM: Yes, here is the first event i've curated and I also are finding it extremely fun. I have been fortunate the work shown can be so specific also to have such an appealing room becoming given the freedom to relax and play around along with it when I be sure to. I could only thank Jonathan, the gallerist at Gallery 286, when it comes to chance.
WCA: just how will you be enjoying BA (Hons) artwork: Painting at Wimbledon College of Arts?
CM: i've enjoyed my time truth be told there so far and am certain that I’ll carry on to!
WCA: exactly what are your plans money for hard times?
CM: ‘Future’right now's the following day – I’m little of a planner, it makes things instead dull and tense…I don’t think I’ve ever had any future ‘plans’, only future committed tips and wonderings! I’ve done a little bit of volunteer work outside of the British and I’d like to venture right back out to different countries in Africa and South America to-do some ‘art related’project work. I’d eventually prefer to complete a masters. But that knows just how any one of that'll turn out!
