Next Generation Design Pavilion
The Scale Rule collective of engineers, architects and designers have installed a pavilion of social interaction – an interactive viewing platform in the grounds of St James Church Gardens for Clerkenwell Design Week 2017. The pavilion was designed by GCSE students during a workshop led by Scale Rule in February.
Until 28 July 2017, St James Church Gardens, Sekforde Street, Clerkenwell, London EC1R.

VHS players may no longer be in production but possibilities for continued experimentation with this medium abound. Members of Black Hole Club exhibit a range of works that consider outdated technologies. On Sunday 2 July Ollie MacDonald-Brown and Sarah Walden will lead a workshop on how to build a ‘dirty video mixer’ from scratch. This device, first developed by Karl Klomp, is used for mixing two analogue video signals.
30 June – 7 July 2017, Vivid Projects, 16 Minerva Works, 158 Fazeley Street, Birmingham B5 5RT.


Art as Research seminar
Artists exhibiting in ‘Navigations – Art as Research’ will discuss the issues and processes around presenting research-based practice to a wider audience. Over a three-year period, the artists have undertaken residencies along canal networks in Wales, making works that respond to site and situation.
Thursday 29 June 2017, Oriel Davies, The Park, Newtown, Powys SY16 2NZ.

Carshalton Artists Open Studios
The inaugural open studios for this leafy outer London suburb includes 30 artists exhibiting across more than 15 venues. The aim is to make this an annual event – and as artists continue to gravitate to outer London boroughs, it seems CAOS can only grow.
24 June – 2 July 2017, Various venues, Carshalton, London SM5.

Drawing for Sculpture
From rough sketches to detailed technical drawings, maquettes to small sculptures, this exhibition takes a look at the role that drawing plays in the practice of 20 sculptors. Includes artists Liz West, David Kefford, Dominic Heffer and Nicola Ellis.
Until 7 October 2017, 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, Church Square, Scunthorpe  DN15 6TA.
