Re-Launch

Date: 27 April-12 June, Monday to Friday | Time: 1-5pm | Location: UCL Art Museum, South Cloisters, Wilkins Building, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT | Price: Free | Age group: All

Re-Launch is UCL Art Museum's inaugural exhibition that marks the reopening of our space after a programme of improvements.

Re-Launch presents a selection of objects, prints and video made in response to our collections and the theme of re-launch. Its contributors hail from the Slade School of Fine Art and have participated as students in our celebrated annual Slade/UCL Art Museum collaborations over the course of the past six years. While some artists investigate the sculptures, prints and drawings within our collections, others experiment with the physical spaces of the Museum to either exploit or explode notions of the archive and its structure.

With the summer solstice just around the corner, join us at UCL Art Museum to tap into some collective creativity and make a unique head piece out of recycled materials.
During this evening of "anti-establishment" millinery, you will look at the creation and the cultural history of headpieces with Dr Susannah Walker, teaching fellow in the History of Art department and artist whose work uses textiles. Find inspiration in works from our collection with themes from the animal kingdom and natural world. Then in discussion with the group make your own headpiece.

We will provide all the basic materials for the workshop to make your headpiece but please do bring any bits or scraps of fabric and material you'd like to work with to use yourself or to share.
