Battersea Arts Centre (BAC) is an arts and community centre in Southwest London, onceBattersea‘s Town Hall now a Grade 11* heritage building. BAC recently became the guardian of the Wandsworth Museum collection, forming the BAC Moving Museum.
The pilot project with 7 MA Fine Art students from Chelsea College of Arts explores exhibiting the Wandsworth Museum collection within Battersea Arts Centre. The exhibition explores how objects and stories from the past can generate art and give Hope to the future. The seven Chelsea students have chosen objects from the archive which resonate with their current art practice, developing new ideas for their work.
The Hope 2 exhibition takes place around the building and further embeds the knowledge of an investment in the BAC collections within the organisation and BAC community.
This exhibition is supported through the Museums & Universities Partnership Initiative through the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement.
Artists : Weichung Lu, Annabel Ludovici Gray, Irene Pouliasi, Cred Roy, Monika Tobel, James Sirrell, Gardenia White.
Working with Sue Ridge - Chelsea UAL and Lucy Parker and Meg Peterson from BAC.
