Young people from Whitechapel Gallery’s Photomonth workshop continued to work with Ukrainian photographer Alina Kisina on a short term project to develop a body of work. This initiative developed by Photomonth involved sessions in her Chisenhale studio and around East London learning about photography equipment, different techniques and developing their individual styles.
On Saturday 21st November 2015, after six weeks, they held an exhibition of their photographs and working processes at Chisenhale Art Place.
Disco Mômo is an open studio event following Joey Ryken’s recent residency at Chisenhale Studios during which he and his collaborator Boricua Octoplasmites (De Nada Unidos) have developed interactive sculptures, or ‘spectacular organs’, as part of their ongoing para-discotheque Disco Mômo; using embodied technologies to affect social reality in experimental ways.

Pupils at Chisenhale Primary School are committed participants of the Arts Award. For several years the school’s programme has been led by artist Sara Heywood and run in partnership with Chisenhale Art Place.
To enrich their experience, the children are given a special opportunity to visit working artists in their studios and to talk directly with them – this year they visited Kate Hardy, a founding member and Alina Kisina, who is one of the newest.
At the end of their project, the children held an exhibition at Chisenhale Art Place, inviting the whole school plus parents and studio artists.
Come and join our fun art sessions at our Creative Saturdays at Chisenhale Studios.

Over the course of December and January, Joey Ryken will be developing a staging of interactive sculptures, or ‘spectacular organs’, as part of an ongoing project called Disco Mômo. The project is an attempt to create an alternate, critical doubling of embodied technologies, their uses in space, and how this coordinates the social.
Ryken will open the residency to participants periodically throughout the residency, culminating in a durational performance event at the end of January.
