Fresh talent abounds in Camberwell on the Green’s Art-Apart exhibition




Artlyst always has an eye for exhibitions in unusual spaces.  A new residential development in Camberwell is playing host to an exhibition of work by recent graduates from the University of the Arts London (UAL).

Frasers property has a reputation for supporting the arts and design in connection with its portfolio of highly successful developments throughout London. At the company’s latest development in the capital Camberwell on the Green, it is staging an impressive exhibition of artworks by young up-and-coming artists which reflect the impressive artistic heritage of Camberwell.  Camberwell College of Arts and the 100-year-old contemporary art venue South London Gallery are nearby.

The exhibition entitled Art-Apart is curated by CCW’s (Chelsea/Camberwell/Wimbledon School of Arts) Projects Officer Daniella Rossi who has carefully selected the work of 18 artists from UAL.  The exhibition is staged in ten apartments on the first floor of the new development of 92 studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments and features painting, illustration, sculpture, video art and installations.

There is an abundance of fresh talent from all 18 artists but of particular note are Rosie Willkie who uses candle wax and lining paper over manhole covers and paving slabs.  She hung the lining paper across the walls of one of the flats living/dining room and drew more lines in wax over the top.
