CHELSEA space

A view of CHELSEA space from the outside

CHELSEA space is a public exhibiting space where invited art and design professionals are encouraged to work on experimental curatorial projects that may not otherwise be realised.

The emphasis is on curatorial experimentation, the exposure of process and ideas, and re-readings of artworks and archives and their re-presentation for contemporary audiences. CHELSEA space is a platform for discussion and questions rather than definitive answers.

CHELSEA space is sited on the Millbank campus of Chelsea College of Arts, next to Tate Britain, and provides extra-curricular interest for the school and open access to the widest possible audiences.

Ken Cox with Suncycle, 1968

Ken Cox: Poetry Machines

  • 29 April — 5 June 2015 *on now

A highly influential sculptor of the British concrete poetry movement, Kenelm (Ken) Cox (1927-1968) was a creator of kinetically powered poetry machines that made words move in space as material objects. In many of his works letters do not correspond to semiotic language, but instead show a curiously textual approach to sculpture, in which words are not so much read as felt. Cox’s career was cut tragically short in 1968, not long after the opening of his first solo exhibition at the Lisson Gallery, London. This is the first time his works have been shown in London since then, re-asserting Cox as a significant figure in the concrete poetry movement.

Ken Cox: Poetry Machines has been curated by the concrete poetry specialist William Allen and CHELSEA space, with assistance from the Cox Estate.

The African, Asian and Afro-Caribbean Visual Art Archive

Re-Recordings: The African, Asian and Afro-Caribbean Visual Art Archive

  • 24 June — 17 July 2015

The African, Asian and Afro-Caribbean Visual Art Archive was established in the Library at Chelsea College of Art & Design thirty years ago at a time when young Black British artists were confronting the art institutions of the day
This exhibition gives both an opportunity to investigate the records of exhibitions and associated events that challenged the prevailing orthodoxies of the time, and demonstrates the continuing importance of documenting the practice and theory of Black visual art.
