Our friends at Artichoke have announced Women Making History, a new exhibition of more than 100 extraordinary banners made for PROCESSIONS, a 14-18 NOW commission, to mark 100 years of the first UK women getting the vote.

Emblazoned with the concerns of women across the UK, the banners are an inspiring reminder of the importance of feminist activism and the power of protest today.

Created by leading artists in collaboration with women’s groups across the UK, the PROCESSIONS banners speak to the present and the future. Artists include Claudette Johnson, Sarah Maple, Sadie Williams and Vivienne Westwood.

This free, ticketed exhibition will take place from 2 June – 11 July 2021 at London Scottish House in Westminster.

‘Hairy on the Inside’ by GCCA alumni @lindseymendick opens today @cookelathamgallery.

As you can see from this sneak peek of the gallery, Lindsey has completely transformed the space into a surrealist waiting room for a Werewolf fertility clinic. The work explores her experience of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and its side effects of excessive hair growth and infertility, using the form of the werewolf to explore the feeling of living in an invaded body with a forced identity.

It's on until 21 May, go and check it out!

RECOMMENDED: Access is a series of group shows initiated by fine art and curating students from Goldsmiths MFA, taking place between April 1—19.

Dispersed across Deptford in window fronts of local businesses, project spaces and online, it began as an effort to make the participating artists’ work available to Deptford’s communities when local art spaces had to shut due to the pandemic.

The 10+ exhibitions display paintings, sculptures, videos and prints by over 40 artists and curators. Locals and visitors can walk through Deptford to discover these exhibits. Map available @ https://accessmfa.art/

Room to Room took place remotely between July and December 2020 and was instigated to generate new, intergenerational relationships between Lewisham based artists and residents during COVID-19.

Artists Ben Connors, Tyreis Holder, Shepherd Manyika, Davinia Ann Robinson, Alicja Rogalska and Liv Wynter engaged in creative dialogue with six local residents, exploring the role of art and social engagement at a time of social distancing.

The project culminated in a newspaper revealing what it was like for participants to get to know each other and sharing some of the art that was produced.

The newspaper has been distributed to those living in sheltered accommodation in the borough and will be available at Goldsmiths CCA when the gallery reopens on 21 May.

Room to Room is a Goldsmiths CCA project in partnership with Lewisham Homes, with Art Fund support.

CPD: EMBEDDING CONTEMPORARY ART IN THE CURRICULUM – MOHAMED BOUROUISSA (online event)
Mon 22 Mar, 4pm–5.30pm

If you’re a teacher or educator wondering how to talk about contemporary art with young learners, join Neil Walton, Subject Leader for PGCE Art & Design at Goldsmiths, Trish Scott, Engagement Curator at the CCA and secondary school art teacher Nuno Reis Moreira for some suggestions.

At this session we will examine a specific case study; the CCA’s upcoming exhibition of Mohamed Bourouissa’s work ‘HARa!!!!!!hAaaRAAAAA!!!!!hHAaA!!!’.

Through introducing Bourouissa’s work within a framework of big ideas about art, we will consider what makes his work ‘contemporary’ and provide some practical strategies for engaging with his art practice in the classroom.

This event is a follow on from ‘Embedding Contemporary Art in the Curriculum I‘, which set out a general framework for thinking about art in the classroom.

Within the session there will be time to reflect on your own classroom practice and needs, and ask questions and share ideas for how we might continue to support you over the coming year.

It's been amazing to have Year 10 students from Knights Academy with us this week on a virtual work experience placement. They’ve met the team and are creating their own shows inspired by our forthcoming Mohamed Bourouissa exhibition.

They are taking inspiration from the series Nous Sommes Halles (2003-2005) @mohamedbourrouissa.

Hi guys, hoping to get some creative wisdom I'm making a documentary that explores imagination and memory (for my Goldsmiths MA Filmmaking 2018-19 final project) and would love to use animation and/or moving art to portray some of the ideas and layer over interviews. If anyone is interested in adding a doc to their portfolio and would like to collaborate let me know. Would be great to chat over coffee/ a drink!!
