Education Studio

22 June, 2012  |  Education Studio, Public Programme

We have one studio which is set aside as an Education Studio. It is offered for one year to an artist who has a socially engaged practice and the Public Programme Coordinator works with them to develop projects. The previous residents of the Education Studio were Charlotte Mew and Tom Hobson and the current resident is Rachel Oxley.

Rachel’s practice focuses on creating live and time-based artworks for a range of contexts. The work is concerned with the dynamics, possibilities and limits of communication and often highlights the absurdities, connections and frustrations of everyday interactions. For her time at Chisenhale Studios, Rachel is developing a pilot programme of collaborative workshops and events.

We do not keep a waiting list for the Education studio. Instead we advertise it in local e-lists such as Arts Admin and Tower Hamlets Arts & Events. If you email us, we will advise you when we are next advertising.  Please include ‘ Education Studio availability’ in the Subject line.


Chisenhale ‘Street Party’!

Projects by Chisenhale studio artists took place as part of the fantastic Street Party on Chisenhale Road over the Jubilee Weekend. Local children and families enjoyed two projects by artist Richard Layzell: the world’s first ‘Tamboola’ and a paper airplane launch of hundreds of planes from studio windows. They also worked with artists Kate Hardy, Emma Gunningham and Kevin Harrison to create crowns and self-portraits that were exhibited along the railings outside Chisenhale Art Place. ‘Art bunting’ was contributed by other studio artists to accompany the festivities.

Many thanks to the local organisers for inviting us to be involved and to all those that took part!
