The tour was initiated by the viewing of David Troostwyk’s exhibition at the Camberwell Space at the college. Following a briefing and an introduction by the curator, we had a chance to explore and investigate individual pieces on display.
We have also walked through Camberwell and viewed two additional galleries: Assembly Point and Picnic Gallery, which is a part of South London Gallery.
The day was inspirational. I especially enjoyed talking to two young performance artists. Both have just completed their MFA courses, at the Royal Academy and Goldsmiths. The essence of their work was to create an art making community on a mattress of the floor in the middle of the gallery. This unique spaces formed countless opportunities for reflections and discussions with guests and visitors.
