with One Day in the City Festival
Exhibition and events
12 May – 13 Jun 2014
Emerging artists re-visit UCL’s art collections, reflecting on the themes of time and place.
The sixth annual UCL Art Museum/Slade collaboration ran in conjunction with the UCL English Department's 2014 One Day in the City, a festival celebrating London, literature and art.The selected participants were invited to respond to the extensive collections of the UCL Art Museum whilst engaging with the importance of time, place, London and literature, as well as other sources of inspiration relevant to One Day in the City. The resulting pieces included four time-based media works, a light box installation as well as an array of oil paintings, intricate drawings, etchings and a bronze cast. Many of the featured artists have gone on to forge prolific artistic careers, exhibiting internationally and publishing research, such as Helena Hunter, Jonathan Kipps, Olga Koroleva, Katja Larsson, Maxima Smith, Milou Van Der Maaden & Ping Zheng, with some like Kipps, Larsson and van Der Maaden returning to collaborate with us for the exhibition RE-LAUNCH in 2015.
The full list of featured artists includes: Lea Collet, Freddie Duffield and Sarai Kirshner, Robbie Fife, Benjamin Heiken, Helena Hunter, James Kelly, Jonathan Kipps. Anna Klimentchenko, Olga Koroleva and Katja Larsson, Neena Percy, Maxima Smith, Lara Smithson, Cheryl Simmons, Milou Van Der Maaden & Ping Zheng
During One Day in the City (Friday 13th June 2014), to compliment the group exhibition, several of the artists engaged visitors with interactive installations, live events and other creative activities.
