Munks recent series of sculptural work will work along side with Deja’s moving image pieces. The exhibition, entitled Synthetic Seduction, questions and explores fundamental emotions, such as love, empathy, attraction and repulsion, within our increasingly virtual and cybernetics-influenced world.

Equal Voices

February 22, 2018-  March 2, 2018 |  Free
Equal Voices is a temporary training centre and group exhibition generated by a collective of artists from across the RCA school with diverging practices that intersect ideas of shifting and destabilising the centre ground. Power centres are provoked in a myriad of contexts from the hegemony of western-centred views in contemporary art to questioning why the role of the speaker is so valued and the role of the listener is devalued in educational contexts. With a range of artistic practices, the group investigates the voice through vocal practices as well as non-speaking forms of communication. Whilst borrowing non-hierarchical methods from...

But I think it’s for the best

February 22, 2018-  February 23, 2018 |  Free
An exhibition that explores the pain of having loved or lost. Having grown up in Colombia, Viviana’s video installation is heavily influenced by what magic realism can offer to portray how beauty can be found in solitude. The birth of love does not mean the death of loneliness. So, alone or not come grab a drink.

An idea for a scene in a uk gangster film

February 24, 2018-  February 25, 2018 |  Free
Interested and excited by 2 works I saw recently by Ba students at Chelsea College of Art -Sam Sun and Mitch Vowles both controversial works in their own right. The works stirred up lots of conversation, I found the works standing alone had no context or allowed the viewer to set a context, that may not have been the intention of the work. Taking another controversial Artist whose works set their own undeniable context, Ellie Pennick. Who is also the director of The Take Courage Gallery (a very apt name).
