Nine first-year MA Curating the Contemporary students from London Metropolitan University (the CASS) and the Whitechapel Gallery Graduate Programme are looking for financial aid to support the artists of their exhibition.
Opening festively on Thursday evening the 3rd of March, the exhibition "Concrete Matters" will be on in the Bank Space Gallery at the CASS from 4 - 19 March. Employing the gallery as a paradigm, the exhibition will seek to bring together 10-15 artists’ work, concentrating on interpretations of the mutually shaping relationship between urban space and human identity.
This theme in based on the French theorist Guy Debord's work on the concept of psychogeography and is chosen deliberately in line with the current situation of the CASS Faculty of London Metropolitan University, which will be moved from the East End to the North London Holloway Campus.
The exhibition preparations are in full swing, and receive incredibly good feedback. However, our budget cannot cover all artist-related expenses (such as materials, transport, even artist's fees) and therefore, additional funds are key.
If you want to support the development of this project, please consider making a pledge. Every act of generous support will be rewarded accordingly. Many thanks for reading up to this point, and maybe also for your donation. Hope to see you all at "Concrete Matters".
