Friction Project: Miniature Museum of Museums by Tara Downs & Bart Sabel
Tara Downs & Bart Sobel have created a miniature museum in response to The Holst Museum in Cheltenham, the Museum in the Park in Stroud and the Waterways Museum in Gloucester. Their automated sculpture – an interactive desk – will tour to all three venues, having just launched in Gloucester. Incorporating sound and movement, the work encourages audiences to touch and interact.
Until 13 April 2015, Gloucester Waterways Museum, Gloucester.
Passage: an installation by Murray Anderson
Tucked away down a narrow passage-space, Murray Anderson has created a site-responsive installation of uncanny human-size figures. These disconcerting sculptural objects look into the indoor Edward Arcade where the artist-led space Curious Projects is located, suggesting associations with the location and the narratives the environment conjures up.
Until 17 April, Curious Projects, The Labyrinth, Eastbourne.
Anne Krinsky – From Absorb to Zoom
The London-based painter and printmaker Anne Krinsky has explored the archives of the Women’s Art Library at Goldsmiths to create a site-specific installation. Using digital print, the work draws inspiration from the extensive documents on women artists’ works that have been gathered and collated since the archive opened in the late 1970s. Having created works with a similar approach in the US, this is the first time Krinsky has made such a work for a UK archive.
2-30 March 2015, Women’s Art Library, Goldsmiths, London.
In the lead up to International Women’s Day, as part of WOW (Women of the World) Festival, Clare Smith’s shared making project, Stitched Time, tours to Folkestone. Smith initiated and organised the project, initially inviting seven other female artists to join her during a ceremonial workshop in Dover that functioned as a ‘making process suggestive of an assembly line-cum-sewing circle.’ The resulting works open with a talk by Smith and Joanna Jones, co-directors of DAD (Dover Arts Development).
3-7 March 2015 (2 March opening & talk, 6-8pm), 2 Church Street, Folkestone.
Leise Wilson – New Paintings
Leise Wilson has been documenting the changing landscape of Thanet and this exhibition is the culmination of several years work. Paintings, text and data are brought together to convey this coastal region and consider the impact of ‘time, colour and vision’.
7 March – 17 April 2015, UpDown Gallery, Ramsgate, Kent.
