Inspired by Laura Oldfield Ford Seroxat, Smirnoff, THC
19-22 Nov 2014
Launch Event: Wed 19 Nov 5-7pm / All Welcome

The Stanley Picker Gallery is pleased to present  Where is here?  a special exhibition of artworks made by students from Christ’s School Twickenham,  Surbiton High School  and Kingston University, alongside pupils from St John’s C of E School (year 5) and our  Saturday Art Club, Rhythm & Muse, the  Women’s Institute  (Worcester Parkers) and members of the  Bradbury Centre, who participated in a series of creative workshops inspired by the contemporary practice of psychogeographer, zine-maker and current Stanley Picker Fellow in Fine Art  Laura Oldfield Ford.

Throughout the programme, with workshops tailored to meet the interests and requirements of individual groups, participants visited Seroxat, Smirnoff, THC,  Oldfield Ford’s exciting new exhibition of drawing, painting, text and photographic artworks and learnt about the artist’s practice, influences and creative processes, while sharing their individual interpretations, ideas and personal preoccupations through free-writing, drawing and map-making, collage, drawing and discussion.  Where is here?  showcases a selection of the outcomes including billboard posters and ‘zines, the multiples of which we invite Gallery visitors to take away and begin their own collections. The Gallery team have been intrigued and impressed by all, and hope that you will join us in celebrating their achievements.
