Meet the Artist & Launch Event: 'Three Floors Down: In the Studio'
- 28 November 2014 6-8pm
For this project, Borough Road Gallery will be divided in two: with one half becoming a studio space, and the other dedicated to a display of works from 'A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection' selected by Sluglett and Borough Road Gallery. This event will be a chance to take a first look at the new display, and to meet Sluglett and gain an introduction to her practice. Sluglett will be based in the Gallery for three months, making new work in response to ‘A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection'.
As part of this event the Gallery's first Artist in Residence Susan Sluglett will be giving a free talk at 7pm.
Three Floors Down: In the Studio
- 3 December 2014 — 28 February 2015
In the 1940s and 50s (when the University was known as Borough Polytechnic), the celebrated artist and teacher, David Bomberg, taught his legendary art classes in the life-drawing studios three floors above where Borough Road Gallery is now situated. Bomberg was passionate about the importance of art within society and about supporting artists in their careers. The aim for the residency is to continue Bomberg’s legacy by inspiring new work and supporting the development of an artist and their practice, whilst at the same time offering the opportunity to engage with, understand, and enjoy 'A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection' in new, unexpected and creative ways.
Sluglett will be based in the Gallery for three months, making new work inspired by 'A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection'. As well as her studio space, the Gallery will also house a dedicated display of works from 'A David Bomberg Legacy – The Sarah Rose Collection' selected by Sluglett and the Gallery.
