Exhibition of live art and digital installations will see twelve young artists reimagine The Cass Atrium as a metaphorical waiting room.
Date: 30 November 2018
The Cass invites you to an exhibition of live art and digital installations in the school's Atrium at Goulston Street that comprises two events; a Private view on the 4th December from 4-6pm, and a Finissage event on the 5th from 6.30-8.30pm.
For the two day exhibition, twelve young artists will reimagine the Atrium Gallery as a metaphorical waiting room. Waiting is more than an action. It is, in many ways, a condition of our lived experience. As the speed of the world at large increases, it is not so much that we spend more time waiting, but that we are obsessively conscious of it. The relentless drive forward makes our experience of the 'now' an impatient one. This idea of waiting is about movement that is stuck – not quite content with the present, probably afraid of the future.
The participating artists 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, Eleanor Wilkinson. The Waiting Room is curated by Jacek Ludwig Scarso, course leader of BA Theatre and Film and the Production Manager is Jelmer Tuinstra.
This exhibition precedes a unique art installation at Tate Modern, (Tues 11 - Sun 16 December 12-6pm) in which the theme of waiting will be explored in Jacek Ludwig Scarso’s ongoing piece In Limbo: a new collaboration with Tate Exchange, The Cass and Anise Gallery.
Book to attend either of the events here.
