Join us for a closer look at the evolution of the onesie, the clothing item that has infiltrated today’s society. MA Curating students from Chelsea College of Art and Design invite Anne Breure, MA Art and Politics, Goldsmiths and Antonia Beard, BA Fashion Design Technology, London College of Fashion to give their thoughts on the concept of the onesie. The discussion will explore how the onesie can be seen to offer the possibility of being part of a temporary community. Presentations will be followed by a Q&A and an opportunity to wear and customize a onesie for the rest of the evening!

Exhibition runs: Wednesday 15th May 2013 – 28th July 2013
Chelsea Futurespace proudly presents Four Decades an exhibition of prints by Sir Peter Blake, selected by the artist. Blake’s work takes its influence from the realms of pop culture, literature, music and contemporary art. The suites of prints in the exhibition include his series of Appropriated Alphabets, Alice in Wonderland, The Butterfly Man (Homage to Damien Hirst) and Homage to Schwitters. Other highlights include prints from the Found Art series, screenprints from collage and portraits of musicians including Chuck Berry, Brian Wilson, Ian Dury, The Everly Brothers and The Clash. The show covers the diversity and dexterity of Blake’s practice as an artist working in print across the last four decades.
Sir Peter Blake is renowned for his influence on Pop Art and culture and is frequently referred to as the ‘Godfather of British Pop Art’. He has worked with bands and musicians including The Beatles, Oasis and Paul Weller, designing the iconic cover for The Beatles’ ‘Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’. Blake’s work transcends the divisions between high art and pop culture, with visual influences from artists such as Kurt Schwitters to music icon Frank Sinatra.
An internationally acclaimed artist, Sir Peter Blake (born 1932) studied at Gravesend Technical College before attending the Royal College of Art. He subsequently taught there and at other institutions including St Martin’s College. A major retrospective of his work Now We Are 64 took place at the National Gallery in 1996 and at Tate Liverpool in 2007. Sir Peter Blake was knighted in 2002, for services to art.
Exhibition in association with CCA Galleries and Paul Stolper Gallery.
As with each exhibition at Chelsea Futurespace, a new publication will accompany the show, published by CHELSEA space.

‘Humans See Round Corners’, but Cameras Don’t‘ a talk by Richard Wentworth as part of Thingness: The Collection exhibition at Camberwell Space.
Richard Wentworth has played a leading role in New British Sculpture since the end of the 70s. His work, encircling the notion of objects and their use as part of our day-to-day experiences, has altered the traditional definition of sculpture as well as photography. By transforming and manipulating industrial and/or found objects into works of art, Wentworth subverts their original function and extends our understanding of them by breaking the conventional system of classification.
Date: 22 May 2013, 5.30 – 6.30pm
Venue: Lecture Theatre, Wilson Road, Camberwell College of Arts
Places are limited, please arrive early.
As part of the exhibition Thingness: The Collection at Camberwell Space, there will be a talk on The History of ILEA Collection by Maria Georgaki, followed by an Object Handling Session, led by David Garnett.

David Garnett is Conservation Technical Staff, and Use Manager for ILEA Circulating Design Collection (Camberwell Collection), Camberwell College of Arts. Observing the effects on others and himself of the sometimes mysterious and often evocative qualities imbued in some objects and collections has guided David’s professional interest and practice towards investigating the creative possibilities of encounters with such things.
As part of the exhibition Thingness: The Collection, a workshop based on constructed histories and narratives: Where did objects within the exhibition come from and what is their story? The process would form an alternative catalogue, featuring an image of each item along with its newly acquired title and narrative.
