The Cass is delighted to announce the launch of Window Space, a temporary gallery presenting a programme of site-specific installations by different artists. 

Window Space opens its series with You always say you’ll go, but you never buy the ticket by up and coming artist and Cass Fine Art alumnus John Henry Newton (1988, Swindon, UK). Newton uses our natural responses to quotidian things as the basis for his work How do we remember these occurrences? What do we remember and how do we form those memories? Playing with these stories from the past, he re-examines the everyday. He shows us ‘the weight of things grasped in the story of things'. 

Window Space, which is in the window of Central House facing Whitechapel High Street, is curated by students and alumni of our MA Curating the Contemporary course and will launch each monthly exhibition to coincide with the popular First Thursdays event.

Window Space follows the successful Commercial Road project in collaboration with CURA magazine in 2012/13 and curated by MA Curating Alumna Susanna Bianchini.

The MA Curating the Contemporary course is run in partnership with Whitechapel Gallery.
