CONTEMPORARY TEXTILES FAIR 2019

Saturday 23rd – Sunday 24th March | 10am - 5pm

The Contemporary Textiles Fair is a well-established, high quality and highly regarded event, held in the magnificent Grade II* gothic surroundings of the Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington, South-West London.

The fair is almost unique in its focus on textile artists & designer makers, unencumbered by suppliers, DIY kits, and other craft disciplines. It is this clear focus, together with the unique setting and returning visitors that make this event both enjoyable and successful, year after year.

The Contemporary Textiles Fair is somewhere textile enthusiasts, collectors and art lovers can come to find artworks with texture, wearable masterpieces, handmade homeware, and unique curiosities. This isn’t granny’s knitted teacosy territory, this is contemporary quality! From stitched wall-hangings with conceptual significance, to carefully designed and hand-crafted objects; this fair does not discriminate – the art/craft barrier fades away to reveal exceptional talent in textiles.

CRITERIA

The criteria for applications is the same for all of the Landmark’s art fairs: individual textile artists and designer-makers whose work demonstrates creativity, innovation and quality, balancing the tactile and functional with the aesthetic. Please note that there is a selection process and, in the interest of keeping the show fresh, a ‘three year’ rule may apply; i.e if you have exhibited for three years in a row you may not be selected for one or two years.

This year there are a limited number of stands being offered at a reduced rate to students and recent graduates. Please refer to the FAQ's and state the Raw Fibres option in the Stand Choices section of the application form.

Paperworks

Share

Category:

City:

Paperworks is a paper exclusive exhibition devoted to looking at a range of artists, both established and emerging, whose work with/on/in paper explore its flexibility, simplicity and beauty. Works on paper are often under esteemed in terms of art practice – however, some of the artists involved here work primarily on paper, whilst others return to it over and again.

Drawing is often considered as the quintessential point from which the development of an idea moves through to a larger or more complex work – regardless of whether they contain the genesis of a larger work or are complete in themselves, drawings offer both the maker and the viewer direct appeal as intimate first-hand encounters.
Those involved in this exhibition range from internationally renowned artists such as Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, whose screenprints are in the Tate Britain collection to several newly emerging artists from recent Leyden Gallery Platform for Emerging Arts exhibitions.

The parameters of the paper works cross various techniques and engage many different skills, such as drawing, painting, illustration, sculpture, printing and photography.

Artists: 

Wilhelmina Barns Graham

Paula Rego

Gareth Bunting

James Melloy 

Tina Crawford 

Sarah Muirhead

Linsday Moran

Daniel Hosego

Buffy Kim

Georg Meyer-Wiel

To coincide with the Paperworks exhibiton, artist Gareth Bunting will be running a special workshop on April 7th, "Virtual Reality Drawing workshop with artist Gareth Bunting". Open your eyes to a new world of possibility and take a tour through the immersive and surreal landscapes created by an award-winning artist. Using the Oculas rift headset, attendees will be getting hands-on with Gravity Sketch and Google tilt brush, learning the basics and creating their own personal and imaginative 3D paintings.

Call for artists, writers & scholars interested in 'place'

Gonooza is an audio tours app featuring non-traditional tour guides: artists, writers, musicians and scholars. The app allows its users to experience London’s physicality in radically new ways - historically, culturally, aesthetically, ontologically.​

Rather than as audio tours, we encourage our contributors to think of the medium as “place-specific communication”. Gonooza contributors are free to interpret, reimagine, describe, riff off, criticise or eulogise places and objects in London in any way they wish.

For full information, please see: www.gonooza.live/call-for-contributors

We invite proposals from artists, writers & scholars for whom 'place' is important, or who could use the format of place-specific voice recordings to create experiences for our users.

If they wish, contributors may charge users for their 'tour', thereby earning income.

Affordable Workspace Creche - Dalston

Share

Country:

V22’s first Workspace Creche opened in September 2017. Our aim is to provide a space for artists, freelancers and entrepreneurs, who are also parents, to work alongside a crèche facility for their children.

The enterprise is run by V22 Foundation ‐ a not‐for‐profit organisation ‐ and, if successful, we want to make such an offer an integral part of V22's studio and workspace buildings across the city. Our business plan is based on the most affordable model we could come up with. We have tried to build flexibility into it without escalating administration costs, and hope we may grow to be more flexible as we settle into our daily rhythms.

What we want to create, in partnership with our parents and carers, is an ethos of co‐caring for our children in an environment built on a child‐centered approach to daily routines which celebrates the importance of play.

We believe, like Albert Einstein, that play is the highest form of research, and we take seriously our commitment to a child‐led approach, not only to play, but also to the changing design ofthe creche space, the choice of books for our library, and even visits to the local market to choose fruit and vegetables for snack time.

The crèche has dedicated access to the lovely Dalston Eastern Curve Garden which means that our children can have a daily outing to this lovely community green space. The children also use local facilities like the library at the end of the road and the local Ridley Road market. Parents have already started to get involved offering workshops on their specialisms or hobbies, these include: growing plants, looking at art and painting. We hope more parents wil become involved as we belive in a co-operative model of childcare and believe it adds to the culture of co-caring which our crèche provides. 

Sessions run from 9am - 12 noon and 1.30pm - 4.30pm. An outline of our daily routine can be found here, and FAQ's here. 

Parents of children under five (or expecting one soon) who would like to register their interest, can fill out our short form here and we will get back to you with news, waiting list information, and availability.

We hope you will join us in creating the next generation of creative parenthood.

We are delighted that the Mayor of London pledged to our crowdfunding campaign on Spacehive to help to set up the crèche. He said: 'I am delighted to be supporting projects like the V22 Workspace Creche that will help strengthen local communities and help to make London an even greater city.’
