EXHIBITION: 'The Waiting Room', a collaboration between The Cass and Tate Modern

The exhibition, made up of live art and multimedia installations, takes place at the Atrium Gallery in Goulston Street

Date: 4 December

The Waiting Room, taking place on 4 and 5 December, is an immersive exhibition which sees twelve Theatre Arts students transforming the Atrium Gallery into a metaphorical waiting room.

The exhibition culminates with another unique art installation at Tate Modern, titled In Limbo. The installation is led by Dr Jacek Ludwig Scarso, Course Leader in Theatre and Film BA, who is also the curator for The Waiting Room. For this, Jacek has worked in collaboration with Tate Exchange, The Cass, Anise Gallery and AVR London. It opens on 11 December and runs until 16 December, open from 12–6pm.

Jacek said:

“The work done by our students for The Waiting Room reflects on the action of waiting, both in its mundane and metaphorical connotations. My students will then assist me in my own original work for Tate, In Limbo. This will be a continuous experience taking over the whole of the 5th floor of the Tate Blavatnik Building and we will invite the public to participate, with our students performing live as "bureaucratic angels". It will also feature daily "waiting lounge chats", informal talks curated by myself, as well as a new VR journey in partnership with Felix Dodd and A-VR.”

The artists contributing to The Waiting Room are: Skye Collins, Fatemah Dhanji, Laura Graham-Clarke, Awan Hossein, Midia Hossein, Jowita Jakubowska, Ellie Kavanagh, Miguel Madeira Ventura, Gershom Ofori Amanfo, Iasmina Patrascu, Natalie Siwicki and Eleanor Wilkinson.

On 4 December the exhibition runs from 4–6pm, and on 5 December from 6:30–8:30pm. Entrance is free, for more details click here.
