Look Out Exhibition

‘Look Out’, a solo exhibition by Conceptual Artist, Laura Hepworth at the Jeannie Avent Gallery in East Dulwich, South East London. Opening Thursday 13th -31st August, on weekdays from 11:30-5:30pm and Saturdays from 10-5pm. Then, Sundays from 11-4pm. Get free by transforming your surroundings, look out and see a changing world. A world full of energy felt consciously and unconsciously. How does that make you feel? And in what way would you express those feelings if you were given the chance to? ‘Look Out’ visualises the joining of two acts, transference and transformation. Tools such as these are used to shift our perception on the way our own emotive language can be represented, sublimating into colour and mark making. Through this, Hepworth breathes energy into her lockdown collection ‘In Between’, as the exhibition celebrates the process of Laura’s artistic journey, in relation to her own mental health and grief and the freedom the artist has found within the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.  You’re invited to the Private View Of ‘Look Out’ by Laura at the …

The House That Slipped

Starting tonight and continuing every evening this week at 7.30pm with a LIVE socially distanced finale on the 8 August, Teatro Vivo presents an online immersive show. Directed by Mark Stevenson. When the UK went into lockdown the residents of 12 Laburnum Drive, Brockley took the government advice very seriously. One month on they opened their front door to find themselves in unfamiliar surroundings. Their little house had floated away and come to rest in the year 2070. Although the future seems to be almost Utopian, they have started to think about how they could get home. They have discovered that Zoom still works on their laptops, and by a strange setting in the latest upgrade they seem to be able to contact people from 2020. That’s where you come in. For five nights only, a very limited audience will be enlisted to help them find their way back (if they want to), and maybe even to meet them in person a special socially distanced celebration. The House That Slipped is funded by Arts Council England …
