CCA Shows 2017: Open House
20 May 2017 to 21 May 2017 | 12pm 6pm
Delfina Foundation | 29–31 Catherine Place, London SW1E 6DY
This year’s CCA MA graduating students present their final projects developed in collaboration with leading art galleries based in London as part of the new CCA Graduate Partnership project programme. Working with Gasworks, Delfina Foundation and Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall and building on previous commissioning projects with the RCA’s Sculpture programme, the four projects explore themes of public space, liquid citizenship, nomadic communities and spatial memory through such disparate contexts as an off-shore company boardroom, the New Covent Garden Flower Market, the Victorian railway arches of Vauxhall and the practices of Airbnb.
Open House responds to Delfina Foundation’s acclaimed international artist-in-residence programme during which creative producers live and work at the Foundation’s base in Central London. Drawing on the personal memories of participants’ residency experiences over the last eleven years, writers, curators, artists and performers, have been commissioned to produce temporary interventions in the private and public areas of the Delfina space. Over a single weekend this programme of vibrant participatory and performative work will catalyse the Foundation’s architecture, to explore ideas of ‘being in residence’, the intersections between public and private, and what it means to collect intangible experiences, rather than physical artefacts.
