UAL Postgraduate Community Pop Up | Artist as Curator

Tue 10 May 2016 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Griffin Gallery invites you to join the UAL Postgraduate Community for an evening exploring the role of artist as curator, against the backdrop of 'Pool', our current exhibition. 

Artist/Curators Rebecca Byrne and Liz Elton will host a tour of the exhibition and talk about the process of curating Pool and several of the artists will be present. Sarah Kate Wilson, Rob Leech and Sarah Jones, all artists in Pool who also curate independent projects, will also speak about their artistic and curatorial practices. There will be a Q&A at the end, over a glass of wine and some light refreshments.

Pool explores the expanded field of painting via the device of a constructed landscape, a garden, with works brought together as an immersive experience.

Thirteen artists, all of whom work in and around painting, have been asked to make work that alludes to this theme. As the show has developed, new connections between the works have become apparent, and aims have altered and shifted. The construct of a garden has acted as a frame in itself, with ideas embedded in individual pieces moving in and outside its own boundaries.
