I’m involved in a project at the moment called interAction(s). The exhibition is an ongoing and constantly changing show of work. The opening was Thursday 28th February and it runs ’til 23rd March. Here’s some info;
interAction(s) is a project/exhibition curated by Lada Wilson, Fine Art student and member of the Student Curatorial team. interAction(s) consists of an evolving assemblage of texts and images. It is the presentation of a ‘process’; it is an ongoing work-in-progress.
This exhibition was inspired by the work of two artists – Rachael Disbury and Liam Dunn and the chosen site, the Matthew Cabinet, which creates a perfect venue for a three-week long artistic interaction. The two artists will create a visual dialogue: they will create visual poetry by reacting to each other’s work. Each day Rachael will write a text, each night Liam will create an artwork inspired by that text.
This is a Student Curatorial Team ProjectMatthew Cabinet is at the rear of the Matthew Building, DJCAD on Level 5.
Liam, Lada and I are contracted into an agreement regarding this project. The preview event saw a performance event of the signing of the contracts and the first instalment of work by myself, ‘Artist A’.
‘Relics of Attachment Part I’ is an exhibition I’ve been organising with some fellow Student Curatorial Team members. It features a collection of artwork inspired by the concept of nostalgia and sentimental objects.
Tonight was the introduction to this project. There was a lot of footfall, a lot of interest, and generally a good feeling all round.
Take a look at our work.

This project took a lot of time and planning but I feel our work is paying off. I love the buzz of all this organising. Curating ain’t so bad.
We’re hosting a meeting tomorrow to encourage other artists to submit work for Part II of this project. The 14th of February should see a larger exhibition presented in the Cooper Gallery. So there’s really no time to relax for us!
