London Design Festival - Group Exhibition

September 18th- 24th, 2023

Rose curated a group exhibition for The Bakery Art Gallery, for the London Design Festival, An Exploration of the Aesthetic at Home.

This special group exhibition included ten multi-disciplined London artists to explore the importance of surrounding ourselves with beauty - be it through colour, form or texture and material. Rose curated a selection of works including paintings, hand painted furniture, textiles and ceramics using philosophical concepts inspired by William Morris's words –

"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."

This exhibition is about instilling a sense of wonder and joy through the analogue, the simple yet powerful combinations of colour and shape that we can use to spark our synapses into a state of calm, yet blissful and energetic delirium.

For the Festival, the gallery ran the following SOLD OUT artist-led events:

Film Screening from the 'Art and Emotion' series,

written & produced by Vanessa Brassey and directed by EnvisMedia.

19th September 7-9.30pm
The Bakery, 6 Charlton Place, N1 8AJ

Across history, humans have sought to convey the ineffable, imprinting canvases with colours and strokes sourced from Earth's core. Yet, how do these strokes and hues mesmerize, conjuring emotions from joy to sorrow, nostalgia to yearning? 

Join the creators of National Gallery's acclaimed films, featuring philosophers and artists will be on hand at the broadcast of these film shorts, raising questions such as "Is Love Moral?" through cinematic explorations of Regret, The Sublime, Euphoria, and Time's role in still imagery.

The Joy Workshop (families welcome)
23rd September, 10am-12pm
The Bakery, 6 Charlton Place, N1 8AJ

Join our artists for a private tour of the exhibition with a focus on form, colour, light and shadow.

Visitors will be invited to make their own works using watercolour pencils and collage, with colours and forms that echo the feelings evoked by the interior we have created.

This workshop is open to all, and we particularly encourage families with children aged between 3 and 13 to join us.
