Exhibition, Just Heard

Part of Clerkenwell Design Week Fringe

From Tuesday 24th of May until Thursday 26th of May, One of One will be at Barber Streisand, EC1R 4QL with our POP UP SHOP / EXHIBITION / ORIGINALS and PRINT SHOP.

This edition of One Of One is working mostly with practitioners whose work already exists at an intersection where art and design overlap, and includes artists who work across the fields of graphics, painting, sculpture, ceramics, interiors, illustration, furniture, jewellry and craft.

One Of One is a cross disciplinary platform that functions as both an exhibition and shop environment;  it is pop up and transient by nature, and the focus is on one off pieces and artworks. It is a space where art and design meet and collaborate. Where designers can experiment with new materials, forms and techniques with a freedom from functionality and without having to consider production on a large scale. It is also an opportunity for artists to experiment with making “useful” products for consumption as well as editions that don’t have the pressure of being identical and where variations, accidents and individuality are encouraged.

One of One is interested in ideas that are at a stage where form, material and technique is able to play a bigger role in decision making, and practical factors such as time spent and material costs and availability is less important. It is a space for experimentation, testing and play, in both the artwork produced and the curation, installation and layout of the space.  As well as an unintimidating space for consumers who support designers and artists yet don’t necessarily see themselves as or would identify as art collectors.

Artists and designers featured are; Steve Hockett, Stina Puotinen, DR.ME, Mariel Osborn, Aliyah Hussain, Caroline Dowsett, John Powell-Jones, Rob Bailey, Deanna Halsall, Textbook Studio, Paul Hallows, Studio Up, Higgins/Hankin, Alex T Frazer, Anna Beam and Anita Smith.

Alongside One Of One will run a print shop called “More than One” which features editions by the above artists and includes prints made with traditional and non traditional print processes including, screen print, risograph, Lino print, mono print, collagraph and digital.

A project by DR.ME

For the past year we’ve been working on a studio project called ’365 Days of Collage’, where we’ve created an original piece of collage every day for a year, made them each available to buy, sold and sent them to places around the world from New York to York. Above are a quick selection but if you’d like to view all of them in one place then head over to our site here.

A P A R T is a new exhibition showcasing the visual responses of 6 artists to a short story written by Louie Zeegen. The story, conceived specifically for the show, is split into 6 with each artist responding to a different section within the text. The work will take the viewer on a visual journey through the tale of one mans inner thoughts of love, loss and desperation.

The exhibition, held on Sunday 10th August at Terrace Bar in Manchester, will be the culmination of a two day workshop (part of the on-going Music Workshops programme), ran by Jon Bland & Dan Lancaster of the Manchester based creative agency Music.

A limited edition publication of the artists work will be available for purchase on the night. The event is sponsored by G . F Smith and supported by Intern magazine.

Contributors: Mark Simmonds (Werkplaats, Netherlands), Saori Masuda (Chelsea), Rob Headley (LJMU), Liv McCarthy (Leeds Met), Joel Burden (Leeds College of Art) & Rachel Dalton (Brighton).

Specifics
Sunday August 10th. 6:30 – Late. Free Entry.
Terrace (upstairs) Thomas Street, Manchester.

‘After taking over the internship programme at Music, I felt like the usual process of asking students to travel from all over for a 20 minute chat wasn’t the best way to do things, from either parties point of view. I decided a weekend workshop here at our studio, ran by myself and another designer at Music, Dan Lancaster would be more beneficial. The workshops give us a chance to get to know the graduates / students and they come away with a decent insight into Music, as well as portfolio piece. The workshops then feed directly into our internship programme.’

Jon Bland, designer at Music.

New site

A real pleasure to come across Grace’s work a while ago so now seems as good a time as any to do a quick post about her as she’s just launched her lovely new site (resplendent with a lovely colourful gradient background).

Her understanding and application of colour and line are a joy to behold, I can only suggest that you take your time going through her site as the deeper you dig the more you get!
