One Night Stand #2
Tuesday, 1st of July 2008, 6-9pm
Venue: The gallery at Wimbledon College of Art, Merton Hall Road, SW19 3Q8 London
Have you ever been to a show and realised you were spending more time at the bar than with the artworks? As a response to ‘Cocktail’, a provocation delivered by the students from the University of Essex – in keeping with the curatorial strategy created for the series of three One Night Stands events – the MA CWCP Chelsea students invite you to a show where the works combine to create a space for reflection on the often ambiguous engagement with artworks at a private view. By pushing the art experience to the brink of collapsing into a party, this event looks at the social processes and conventions of private views themselves.
ONS #2 brings together a cocktail of seven artists, a DJ and a live band to spotlight particular mainstays of the private view format through a series of curated artworks and performances during the night.
Featuring works by Kate Hawkins and Eloise Fornieles, Sheena Macrae, Darren Edwards, Ellakajsa Nordström and Maymanah Islam, Orion Maxted
Music by Oliver Barton and The Coolness
