Performance. Chudamani Clowes and her troop will migrate from Vauxhall Station at 12 noon to Lewisham Art house. To highlight global migration.
The Neulinge Collective consists of four South Asian artists from Pakistan, Srilanka and India who are alumni of the Royal College of Art and the University of Arts London and have come together to critique the status quo with work that reflect issues of inequity we face today. Their art speaks of a sense of responsibility for the future, the power of dialogue as a way of binding people together in a world that is fragmenting before our very eyes.
Marium confronts orientalist notions of the ‘oppressed’ woman in Pakistan with her monumental figure paintings while Chudamani reflects on individual achievement of immigrants contributing to the success of Britain. Divya’s work is inspired by a quote from an ancient Tamil text about compassion and links this to the idea of care. She finds similarities between the conditions of the current pandemic and the conditions of the plague pandemic in the early 1900s in India. Maryam’s jewel like mixed media works are reflections of her experiments with textiles and their new age iterations from automated jacquard designs to digital designs on screen.
Entanglements in Time
6th August 2021
Friday 6th – Sunday 15th August 2021 [12 – 6pm]
with an opening reception on 5 August 2021, 6–9pm
Entanglements in Time is an upcoming exhibition at Lewisham Arthouse showcasing UK-based artists Bart Hajduk, Christopher Taylor, Jasmin Märker, Kristina Pulejkova, Margo Trushina, Solveig Settemsdal and Yambe Tam, curated by Kristine Tan and Mariana Lemos.
Shown together for the first time, the works challenge anthropocentric markers of temporality by examining timelines that stretch far beyond the duration of human existence. Neither optimistic nor pessimistic, the artists explore multiple ways of viewing ecological relationships. It is by acknowledging how we cannot extricate ourselves from this ‘mesh’ that we can look at ecology as a whole and acknowledge how we are intimately entangled with every living and non-living thing in time.
This exhibition is generously supported by the Exhibitions Hub, Goldsmiths University of London.

From the rooms we live and move through, to the changing light which nuances these spaces, Living Room is an exhibition of paintings by artist Tim Patrick focusing on a year painting a flat in Hackney. Working in situ at a large scale, Patrick’s paintings are rooted in the process of painting directly from life; where the quotidian and everyday aspects of the interiors closest to us are held as the focus of painting. The exhibition seeks to explore painting as an artefact of place – the work being as much a piece of the place itself, as an image of it.
The Project Space is run with the aim of providing affordable exhibition space and a platform for emerging artists, community groups and those who have been unable to find support/space through traditional gallery routes. In doing this we hope to provide a vibrant program of exhibitions for our local community, creating an opportunity for people to enjoy, discuss and engage with contemporary art in an informal and accessible setting. Alongside the program of hire shows we also facilitate larger projects and residencies that focus on our core aims of outreach and community engagement. We are always interested to hear from local artists, curators and community groups with proposals for larger projects or who are interested in forming creative partnerships with the Arthouse.
Lewisham Arthouse is committed to ensuring our Project Space is accessible for anyone to hire. We acknowledge that social barriers may influence participation in, and enjoyment of the arts. In an effort to address this in our local communities, our application process is open to everyone, regardless of age or educational background. We particularly welcome applications from non-white, Black, Asian and minority ethnicity individuals and groups.
Lewisham Arthouse is an artist cooperative and the staffing for the project space is provided by the voluntary work of our membership. We program the space in two six month blocks, from January to June and July to December. Proposals are accepted from 1st September for the following January to June and from 1st April for July to December. Dates are allocated in the order that proposals are received and once the program is fully booked for each 6 month period we close applications. The terms of hire and application form are available on the following links.
We would like to highlight that dates are subject to change due to the coronavirus pandemic and prioritising cancelled exhibitions. Please bear with us as the situation develops. Moving forwards, we will be working to accommodate exhibition proposals in line with social distancing guidelines recommended by the Government.
