CAN SCULPTURE EVER HAVE A SOUL?

An exhibition exploring materials, scale and consciousness in the representation of the human form by artists Rayvenn Shaleigha D’Clark, Aron Demetz, Carole A Feuerman, Sean Henry, Jonty Hurwitz, Warren King, Tom Price and Recycle Group. Together they cause us to question, how can the soul ever be captured through the medium of sculpture?

Each artist has not only interpreted his or her model literally but has gone further to capture an invisible quality that fills the figure: from Sean Henry’s sculptures where every millimetre of his subject has been explored in minute detail to bring an exaggerated feeling of realism, to Recycle Group’s use of Augmented Reality, where viewers can hover their app in front of the works to see them come alive. The varying use of materials in modern sculpture is reflected here, with works in bronze, wood (natural and burnt), ceramic, resin, coal, cardboard, and even 3D printing by Rayvenn Sheleigha D’Clark and a microscopic work by Jonty Hurwitz – the smallest Nano sculpture ever created, invisible to the naked eye, which is represented here photographically.

Curated by Keith Watson (Canary Wharf Group who curates an award-winning public art collection and programme) at ONE CANADA SQUARE (Lobby) exploring realistic sculpture, size and materials in creating hyperrealist sculptural work.

ARTQUEST >ASSIST

ARTQUEST >ASSIST

Barby Asante (artist – employer) & Rayvenn D’Clark (artist – assistant)

Assist is a pilot project that will connect artist-assistants from backgrounds under-represented in the arts with more experienced artists who need support at a key moment in their practice. Artquest will majority-fund assistant fees and support artists to employ people to help them work.

There is no single definition of what an artist-assistant does, and wide variation in pay and conditions.

Artists report needing extra help at a transformative stage in their career, such as receiving a major commission, a first solo exhibition at a publicly-funded gallery, or another large-scale project outside their previous experience. Assistants are often recruited through word-of-mouth, compounding the lack of sector diversity and development opportunities for a broader workforce; artists struggle to understand how to employ people legally, ethically and responsibly, perpetuating poor practices.

‘Draw Y(our)Self - LetUsDrawYou

MIND Panel Event - ‘On the Cusp Of’ Workshop

A guided meditation into achieving the ‘perfect’ self portrait by drawing the ‘inner self’ rather than our outward exterior.

Let us take you to a space where together we can re-interpret yourself through a simpler means of drawing that are guided by a positive flow of conversation and collaboration. This workshop will be led by the ‘On the Cusp Of’ duo who are two London based artists - Digital Sculptor, Rayvenn Shaleigha D’Clark & Abstract Illustrator, Ella Devi Dabysing.

The workshop has been executed previously at the Victoria and Albert Museum for their March Friday Night Lates. We at ‘On the Cusp Of’ aim to create a new and intuitive collaboration between the ‘art and non-art world’ by bringing together aspects of the everyday, harmonising these experiences with each others interpretation of ‘self’.

We are living and breathing in the here and now, and so every voice deserves to be seen and heard.

Gradual Podcast Recording

Gradual is a podcast that explores the big questions and challenges that many new graduates will face. In each episode, we share unfiltered stories from creative professionals who make a living doing what they love.

So, what’s the podcast about? Listen here

Gradual (pronounced Grad: UAL) is a podcast that explores the big questions and challenges that many new graduates will face. In each episode, we share unfiltered stories from professional creatives who make a living doing what they love.

Guests tell us about their journey, the ups and downs, advice and practical tips, and how they have come to make a living in the creative industry. With this next series we’re focusing on sharing stories of people who have graduated in the past 1-3 years.

Behind the scenes we’re particularly interested in telling the upfront and honest stories including the difficult bits, the jobs you hated and of course how you overcame that and what went well. We want to offer practical advice, share the stuff that often gets glossed over and help our students figure out how on earth to get a foot in the door.

Who’s making the podcast and why? 

Creative Shift a team within UAL’s Careers and Employability - are dedicated to supporting students underrepresented in the creative industries. We run lots of different projects to support these students including this podcast. With the podcast we’re trying to share advice and hacks from those who have been there. Although our guests are varied we have a particular focus on working class creatives and creatives of colour as we feel these stories often aren’t heard (or perhaps we share the ‘shiny version’) and the advice they offer can be different and really valuable to the students we work with. Many students have mentioned that they don’t see ‘people like them’ working in the creative industries and we’re trying to shift that – if you can’t see it, how can you be it?

Collective Ending is an artist-led collaborative curatorial platform. Composed of many changing faces, we aim to support emerging artists by providing them with projects to explore and develop their practices in ambitious and experimental settings. Collective Ending is also an archive. 

Co-organised by Charlie Mills, Billy Fraser & James Capper @collectivending

Comprising 4 major exhibitions of emerging artists over the course of 12 months, ABSINTHE is a hybrid, eclectic and at points inexplicable presentation of the weirder side of London’s emerging art scene. Located at the Spit & Sawdust pub, Bermondsey, each exhibition will present a mandala of artists that cut and splice between mediums and styles; a kaleidoscopic trip into the city’s current alternative art practices.

ABSINTHE §2 will present the work of 29 artists, each in their own way nightingales of the city; eccentric and progressive voices in the London art scene, together representing the curious side of what it means to make art today. The exhibition will include works from:

ALL THEY WAYS WE COULD GROW: 'REIGN' PANEL

Reign

Visual artist and founder of the Bald Black Girl(s) project Ruth Sutoyé joined Free Word’s All The Ways We Could Grow Season with the debut of her short poetry film Reign.

Centring the narratives of black women who choose to shave their heads, the multi-disciplinary Bald Black Girl(s) project explores perceptions of masculinity, femininity and androgyny alongside sexuality, gender identity and barbershop dynamics. The project launched at Free Word with an evening of moving poetry readings and insightful, humorous and powerful conversation, with an exciting line-up of bald black women.

Reign is an afrofuturistic reimagining of a world where only bald black women exist. Watch the full film below.

BLACK + WHITE = GREY
Mar
30
to May 25

BLACK + WHITE = GREY

Picnic is proud to present Black + White = Grey, a brand new installation of 3D lenticular prints and text by Rayvenn Shaleigha D’Clark, exploring the shifting viewpoints of race online.

When it comes to how the lives of black people are portrayed online, these fictions end up spreading at rapid pace through the online world, having real life effects on the people they depict . Rayvenn Shaleigha D’Clark’s work seeks to breaks down these biased and un-thoughtful visualisations to reveal the fractured nature of ‘truth’ in the webspace.

The focal point of D’Clark’s installation at Picnic, is the image of a close friend and fellow artist – HIV/AIDS activist from Congo, Horcelie Sinda Wa Mbongo. Created by using a body scan of Sinda which was 3D printed, the digital file layered into a lenticular object allows for multiple viewing points to be present within a single image. 
As the world of internet memes and viral images continues to grow exponentially and without accountability, the figure in the lenticular is a ‘non-object’ or more simply a ‘copy, of a copy, of a copy’; the original model feels to be far away. However, through centring the black figure as a constant from every viewpoint, D’Clark seeks to positively reframe the way people interact with and perpetuate images of black peoples.

Friday Late: Copy / Paste

Explore how digital copies might transform the physical world and the role of copying in preserving cultural heritage.

Human culture is built on a history of replication. We copy to learn, to assimilate, to preserve and to magnify. How is this behaviour being transformed by advances in technology and what is the value of the authentic or the original today? This Friday Late, watch dance pieces to examine how human error impacts repetition and examine the role of copying in preserving cultural heritage.

How Are You, Babe?

to Mar 24

How Are You, Babe?

How are you Babe? is exploring a contemporary collective feeling of hope from a female perspective.

The exhibition will showcase nine international artists, creating a dialog through performance, sculpture, virtual reality, painting and video installation. The artists will share an intimate view into their perception of the time we live in, questioning social conventions and aesthetic convictions. While it seems tempting to get lost within this generation and its complex issues, the exhibition aims to share a sense of being off to new horizons. By bringing together emerging talents who honestly confront us with the ambiguities of personal expectations and within society , the show delivers a hopeful picture of individual self-determination.

‘BODY & RACE’ - SCULPTURE WORKSHOP

Running from September 2018 – July 2019, The Institute of Everything introduces the idea that artists, like children, are in a constant process of questioning the world around them, and wondering how it might be imagined differently.  Focusing on the creative process of critical thinking, we’re moving away from the idea that artists are people who simply make and do things.  We’ll be working with a cohort of brilliant associate artists, who will introduce the whole school community to all sorts of art and creative practices, at the same time as revealing how artists engage deeply with some of the biggest, most challenging questions we face.

Let's Talk About Porn (2019)

A short documentary film exploring our generation's relationship porn, and the effect it is having in terms of our sexuality and objectification of women.

The documentary will consist of back to back interviews from the general public, people in the porn industry and sex therapists talking about their experience with porn in a safe environment. The documentary is going to be poetic, it will involve a lot of artistic representation and will be shot like an art film in many ways. It will be screened at the LCC summer exhibition, and will hopefully have a life beyond university in film festivals around the world.

THE SOCIO-PARASITOLOGY MANIFESTO EXHIBITION

  • Nunnery Gallery | Bow Arts (map)

Curated by Sabrina Mumtaz Hasan

Guest Curated by Rayvenn Shaleigha D’Clark

Bow Arts Trust is pleased to present The Socio-Parasitology at Nunnery Gallery.

During this pivotal period of political change The Socio-Parasitology entails an exhibition of artworks in response to Hasan’s Socio-Parasitology Manifesto. The ambition of this exhibition is to put into discussion the positive parasite-host relationship, as a means of exercising new methods aimed at finding social change by editing the current pejorative perspective of human bodies behaving parasitic towards each other and new hosting environments. This exhibition aspires to further develop the ethnographic context of this theme – expanding it in an interpersonal work-led narrative as a means of interrogating its existence, usage and value in the current political crisis. The exhibition is in lead up to Brexit and is a polemic act of resistance for positive change and supporting minority groups and communities.

This will take a multi-dimensional format alongside the duration of the show, which includes Early Morning Crits, Weekend Family Workshop, Drop-In sessions and a highly anticipated Curator-Artist Talk.
