Hackney WickED DIY Open Studios – Press Launch
‘INSIDE OUT’ HW Group Show
The weekend kicks-off on Friday from 6pm with the official Private View of the Hackney WickED Group Show, named co-curated by HW’ED Patron Gavin Turk, HW’ED Director Anna Maloney and friends.
‘INSIDE OUT’ will take place at Here East canal-side exhibition space on Friday 28 July 6-9pm and Sat 29th/Sun 30th July 12-6pm.
The intension is to showcase Hackney Wick’s diverse range of artists and talents, and explore the inside workings of the artist studio, outside of its natural habitat of warehouses and yards. It may also be a representation of inner emotions, ideas, shadows and trauma expressed outwardly and publicly at a time of great change in and around Hackney Wick.
Although this is a vulnerable time for the community, Hackney WickED aims to create a union, a ‘bridge’ between the existing creative community and the new comers to the area within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, forging positive new relationships and opportunities for artists to be supported, acknowledged and continue to thrive in the changing landscape, and not become extinct to Hackney Wick.
