Photography and Urban Cultures
14.03.2014 – 31.03.2014
Goldsmiths College – New Academic Building Atrium (map)
Private View – Thu 20.03.2014, 7pm-9pm
Gasket have a long-standing relationship with Goldsmiths College and we were delighted to be invited to curate and install a small exhibition of alumni work to be shown alongside current members of the Photography and Urban Cultures Masters programme.
2014 marks the 50th anniversary of Sociology at Goldsmiths, and the exhibition will run alongside a number of celebratory events. For Gasket, the show provided an opportunity to work with a number of artists who were part of the Adrift exhibition in 2012 in a new environment and context.
Joining Gasket again will be Nora Alissa, David Kendall, Gesche Würfel, Simon Rowe and Gasket’s own Michael Frank, a group of artists whose work all engages in a critical exploration of the urban environment. As always, the curation and installation was a fast and furious affair, but some quick installation shots are included below.
In addition to the work curated by Gasket, the current members of the MA PUC will also be curating and showing work within the same space.
In the MA PUC exhibition, ‘the artists adopt multidisciplinary attitudes in their works and draw influences from fine art, philosophy, journalism and architecture. They bring a diverse point of view and critical eye, through their discovery of everyday life within the urban realm’ (MA PUC, March 2014)
The exhibiting artists are: Hui Song, Judith Fischer, Yinae D Hwang, Yemisi Blake, Yuanfang Ren, James Wakefield, Mattias Malk, Carolina Gonzalez Buendia, Silvia Andrade Marín, Christopher Haney, Sally Hart, Rosanna Goodchild, Michael McCormack, Andy Day, Gill Golding, Kamal Badhey, Jade King, Christina Paugger, June Cadogan, Stefano Carnelli, Lizzie Godfrey, Anita Strasser, Heather Agyepong and Karolis Civinskas
The exhibition will run from Friday 14th March until Monday 31st March with a Private View on Thursday 20th March from 7pm – 9pm. A number of Gasket members will be attending the Private View event so we’d love to see some of you there.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any queries, or Goldsmiths College regarding transport and access to the exhibition space.
