Labour of Love

The exhibition “Labour of Love” by Mil Vukovic-Smart, a PhD researcher at Chelsea College of Arts, presents insights from gardening practice undertaken over the last four years at Chiswick House and Gardens, the birthplace of the English Landscape Movement. By drawing on history of dance and embodied movement practices it approaches historic gardens as choreographic objects and conceives gardening as a form of choreographic dwelling.  

On view by appointment only at Millbank Tower, Podium, Studio 18 

Wednesday 25 Oct – Saturday 28 October 1pm-6pm.  

Please RSVP here or for more information contact m.vukovic@arts.ac.uk

Encoding, Decoding


This group exhibition is underpinned by Stuart Hall’s theory of ‘Encoding and Decoding’. It offers a semiotic way of seeing how meaning-making is generated through the production and consumption of signs and messaging through the architecture of the exhibition, as a pedagogic initiative. The exhibition will show work by students and staff of Afro-Caribbean Heritage that explores the contributions made by the Windrush Generation and the Black herstory and history of pioneers and inventors. Offering, fresh knowledge as a decolonial intervention as a teaching and learning intervention.

DesignInquiry Work/Around

DesignInquiry Work/ Around, part of the 2023 London Design Festival programme, was a weeklong risograph print and publication workshop aiming to subvert the notion of the obstacle as a barricade to creativity; instead, posing the idea that accepting and working around difficulties or disadvantages during the creative process can be conducive to thoughtfulness, imagination, and artistry.

Participants visited the space throughout the week for a series of workshops, presentations and talks curated by DesignInquiry, a multidisciplinary collective researching and developing new strategies for design. DesignInquiry is led by UAL’s Peter Hall, a reader in Graphic Design at CCW. He employs mapping and visualisation techniques as interactive design methods, with a specific emphasis on addressing issues related to the climate crisis, risk, and security.

ROOTS and ROUTES

Roots and Routes is a project that aims to raise awareness of biases and injustices within Art and Design (and) Education, and contribute to inclusive, responsible and accountable practices.

If you think of culture always as a return to roots — R-O-O-T-S — you’re missing the point. I think of culture as routes — R-O-U-T-E-S — the various routes by which people travel, culture travels, culture moves, culture, develops, culture changes, cultures migrate, etc.” – Stuart Hall

This will be a zine-making session that explores Climate, Social and Racial Justice and reflects on our values and positions in our work, daily lives, and connections to nature and history. We will (co)create zines in response to discussion and provocations – which will be uploaded to Instagram.

Join us for critical dialogues towards more equitable and accountable sustainable practices in Art and Design (and) Education!

This workshop and project is co-developed by Gabi Miller (Lecturer in Fashion and Sustainability, School of Design and Technology, LCF) and Adam Ramejkis, Intercultural Communication Trainer, UAL.We will (hopefully) be supported on the day by Climate Advocates and Changemakers from CCW.
