Thinking and Making

Curious Projects would like you to join them for the Preview evening of
Thinking / Making, a curated exhibition of artists’ maquettes and models by 27 selected artists, some of whom are recognised talents from Hastings and St Leonards on Sea.

The catalyst question for this exhibition was: does making help creative thinking? Following the success of the Thinking/Drawing exhibition last year, Curious Projects has now curated Thinking/Making, a group show celebrating ‘making’ as a thinking tool and/or as an aid to making work.

Rather than finished work, this exhibition shows three-dimensional ‘sketches’, models and maquettes, made as part of the artists’ creative thinking process.

For this show, the 27 window panes of the gallery are transformed into display boxes/shelves showing the selected maquettes/models.

The selected 27 maquettes are by the following artists:
Ben Browton / Anika Carpenter / Nicholas Cheeseman / Anne Cresswell / Rachel Dodson / Eldi Dundee / Miranda Ellis / Elaine Fisher / Naomi Greeves / Rupert Hartley / Harriet Hill / Charlie Hurcombe / John King / Jessica Knight / Valerie Large / Amy Leung / Penny Maltby / Vanessa Marr / Judy Martin / Emma Pratt / Jim Roseveare / Katherine Sullivan / Yvette Sullivan + Caelli Brooker / Caroline Testa / Claire Tindale / Alice Walter / Poppy Whatmore.

Curious Projects, Project Space & Gallery, The Labyrinth, 7 Mark Lane
Eastbourne BN21 4RJ.

Preview evening: Friday 4 December from 6pm until 8pm. Then from Saturday 5 December 2015 until Friday 5 February 2016. Mon – Sat, 11am – 4pm

CURIOUS PROJECTS is a small artist-run curated space that exhibits ambitious sculptural and installation work. We aim to support artistic practices which involve ‘making’ within a contemporary critical framework. Previously a shop window, the space is situated in an indoor Edwardian shopping arcade in central Eastbourne, incongruously nestled between a nail salon, a florist and a palm reader.
