C O N T I N U U M

C O N T I N U U M  is an artists residency program recently launched here at Husk. This is its second exhibition. Each artist is encouraged to participate in critiques and collaborative work, their time here culminating in a four-week solo show. We want to build a culture that celebrates art in all its forms, creating relationships with the artists that last beyond their time of residency with us. 

Current Exhibition:

Shades of the Everyday
A community exhibition made by YOU
6th June - 4th July
Contribute 1-3pm on Mondays and Wednesdays

We are exploring those things that bubble under the surface of our everyday. Our fears and the burdens we carry alongside our hopes and things that inspire us to carry on. At this week's Creative Night we began to cover the walls with our sadnesses, fears, hopes and loves. We're hoping that the wall of hope will be the most bright and beautiful soon because hope wins. We want you to come and contribute: 1-3pm every Monday and Wednesday!

Past Exhibitions:

adorn - extend
by Lucinda May

8th May - 3rd June
Opening Evening: 27th May 7-9pm (everyone welcome!)

Artist-in-continuum, Lucinda May, is now exhibiting in our gallery and it’s looking good. The exhibition will develop over the course of the month as Lucinda will be painting her ‘wallpapers’ directly on to the wall while the cafe is open. Come and see it as it grows and chat to her while she paints.

703 Commercial Road
an exhibition by Monica Meyer

15th October - 5th November 2016

Dealing with the concept of space and our orientation within it, this multi-media exhibition focuses on a singular place, 703 Commercial Road.

Meyer explores the idea of places existing as more than physical locales and taking on a life of their own, independent of the emotions and memories an individual inhabitant attaches to them.

30th June - 2nd August 2016

We'd love to invite you to the launch of Songs for Limehouse, an exhibition of new music written and recorded by Husk artist-in-continuum, Wilderthorn.

The songs are written for and about the area of Limehouse, and are inspired by everything from present day conversations with local residents to famous historical events.

To enjoy the exhibition, all you need is your phone and a set of headphones. By typing in the links mapped out on the gallery walls, you will be directed to the relevant music tracks. 

The exhibition will reach its climax with a live performance of the songs in the gallery space, Thursday 30th June at 8pm. 

You can listen to and download the first track, The Battle of Cable Street, here.

an exhibition by Mary Macken Allen

23rd April - 21st May 2016

Husk Coffee and Creative Space is pleased to present a new body of work by Mary Macken Allen, created during her time on our new residency programme Continuum. 
Drawing on themes of longing, memory, and the separateness of experience, Mary has described her work as an exploration of personal experience and the human condition as a whole. The figures in her paintings are often in a state of limbo - suspended in an empty and uncertain space, similar to the lost spaces of memory and dream. Holding both her human subjects and formless space in the same regard, the work is concerned with both the human desire to connect, and the gaps that separate us.
