015 more of an avalanche closing event

This event closed our gallery exhibition more of an avalanche with an afternoon of talks and conversations expanding on the themes it raised. The day featured contributions from Nick Aikens, Curator at Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven and co-curator of recent exhibitions 'The Place Is Here' and 'Rasheed Araeen: A Retrospective'; artists Raju Rage, Trishna Shah, Leah Clements and Phoebe Collings-James; and music producer Elijah. 

015A more of an avalanche Nick Aikens and John Bloomfield

The event opened with a conversation between Nick Aikens, Curator at Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven and 'more of an avalanche' curator John Bloomfield. Nick's recent projects  'The Place Is Here' and 'Rasheed Araeen: A Retrospective' are situated in the 1970s and 1980s and it was hoped that by revisting this research, the conversation could provide a broader historical context for 'more of an avalanche' and an opportunity to view the work through a longer historical lens.
