Graeme Evans curates series of events for the Connected Community Festival

Prof Graeme Evan is curating a long weekend of exhibitions, talks/debates, film screenings, art installations and Open Studios as part of a Connected Community Festival, celebrating both the 10th Anniversary of the Arts & Humanities Research Council, and the month-long London Festival of Architecture, on 26 to 28th June.

An exhibition of Interior Architecture final student work on the theme of Boundaries: The Edge Condition reflects the waterside heritage of this fast-gentrifying area with a high concentration of artists studios and live-work premises. These design schemes explore the boundaries between land and water, social and temporal  divides. The exhibition will be held in the Hub 67, a new-build community venue, together with research arising from our 3 year AHRC-funded Hydrocitizenship project.

There will be an opening at 5pm on Friday 26th at the Hub (see Flyer and Map for details of all events).

During the weekend Hackney WickED Open Studios will give access to a range of artists workspace and work for viewing and sale, including Bridget Riley. Talks and debates on community land trusts, informal live work design, and the construction of Rebecca Feiner’s DEN-City installation will take place from Friday evening through to Sunday. Live music is also available at the Kopparberg Urban Forest each afternoon/evening.
