lass Cloud is one of those obvious but refreshingly simple concepts: an independent collective who collaborate with businesses to exhibit upcoming artists in their windows. This nomadic venture has been around for half a decade: the current display is at the Camden People’s Theatre, where they have an annual summer residency.
This year founder Hannah Luxton received Arts Council funding to host three solo shows at the theatre. The latest is Fiona Grady’s Cross Sections, a site-responsive exhibition that explores the relationship between interior and exterior spaces in a public setting. The aim? To connect the passing world with fine art practices, providing a valuable platform for exposure to large audiences.
As well acting as a temporary gallery, the spot will hold a free, open-to-anyone panel discussion on August 24th (6.30-8pm). Hosted by publicly engaged curators, the idea is to talk about the importance and benefits of showcasing local talent and community engaged enterprises and learn about different approaches to funding, with speakers sharing the challenges they face.
What are you waiting for? Tramp along Hampstead Road and check out the exhibition, then why not wander along Drummond Street, zip over the road for a cocktail at Shaker & Company or head inside and catch one of the many performances taking place at the moment as part of the Fringe? Sorted.
