Fool’s Gold and where to find it
In this talk at Cubitt Gallery, artists Hayley Harrison and Pamela Schilderman will discuss their current exhibition ‘Fool’s Gold’ which is at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum until 14 March 2020. Through the transformation of waste and natural resources their sculptural works ‘form an illusionary world with a fairy tale appearance’, inviting visitors to engage in conversations around the climate crisis and our use of materials.

The Space Below: Emma Critchley and Lee Berwick
This collaborative public sound installation by artists Emma Critchley and Lee Berwick invites its audience ‘into a space where ears rule over eyes’ to reflect on the pressing issue of underwater sound pollution. Installed along the Greenwich Foot Tunnel, which runs beneath the Thames, the work features underwater sound recordings made by scientists around the world, including the natural sounds of an array of sea creatures and the human-made noise of boats, sonar, seismic surveys and acoustic deterrent devices. Part of the ‘Our Ocean, Our Planet’ season at The National Maritime Museum.
7-15 March 2020, Greenwich Foot Tunnel, London SE10 9HT. www.a-n.co.uk/events/the-space-below-emma-critchley-lee-berwick/
The Machine in the Park 2
This artists’ video projection event by Keith Ashford and Elizabeth Turner takes place under the Coventry Highway flyover and is part of the project Scour: the Museum in the Landscape, which explores the industrial heritage of the Arrow Valley. The semi-subterranean space will host sound works alongside projections, juxtaposing recorded rhythms of 19th century mill machinery with today’s concrete architecture and its surrounding landscape.

Re-seen & Unseen Aleksandra Zareba Zeltsch and Brian Okello
Artists Aleksandra Zareba Zeltsch and Brian Okello present new artworks at The Muse Gallery, inspired by their relationship to west London’s Ladbroke Grove and the Westway estate. Zeltsch, who makes hand-drawn sketches, photography and digital painting, presents a ‘visual journey’ of rediscovering the place that she has called home for the last five years, while Okello’s illustration and graphic art is informed by ‘social commentary and his spontaneous responses to his environment’.
4-8 March 2020, The Muse Gallery, 269 Portobello Road, London W11 1LR. www.a-n.co.uk/events/re-seen-unseen-aleksandra-zareba-zeltsch-brian-okello/
