Loughborough Jewels Exhibition

From: Thu 28 January, 11:00am
To: Sat 30 January, 4:00pm

Venue: Market Town Corner, Carillon Court

FREE

Come along to the Market Town Corner for the conclusion of Loughborough Jewels - a project by jeweller and jewellery historian Roberta Bernabei. This participatory project seeks to share and preserve memories of the Market Town of Loughborough, and has worked with local residents to create a set of unique brooches.

Participants were asked to bring along an image, photograph or object relating to their memories of Loughborough, before describing to Roberta the item's significance to themselves and the town. Roberta then combined imagery and words resulting from these workshops with the form of a window frame found in the town centre to create the brooches. This exhibition gives everyone a chance to see what has been created during the project, and all brooches will all be returned to their new owners after its conclusion.

The exhibition will be available for viewing at the following times - please note the differing times for Saturday 30 January:

Thursday 28 January
11am - 4pm

Friday 29 January
11am - 4pm

Saturday 30 January
10am - 1pm

Roberta will also be running a special workshop for children aged 5+ and their families. Click here to find out more. Please be aware that parents/guardians DO NOT need to book a ticket in order to attend this family workshop.

For & Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet

For & Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet is a collaborative project between Radar and Loughborough University academics Dr Gillian Whiteley and Dr Jane Tormey, RadicalAesthetics-RadicalArt (RaRa).

This engaging programme responds to research into the political pamphlet and the relevance of the pamphlet for contemporary art practice. It has comprised a series of public workshops, a symposium, a Charnwood Museum exhibition and Pamphlet Day, a day-long public event in the town centre. Jane Tormey and Gillian Whiteley are working on a forthcoming edited book, ‘Art, Politics and the Pamphleteer’, to be published in the RaRa series by Bloomsbury.

This exhibition shares elements of this project, including new pamphlets by artists Patrick Goddard, Ferenc Gróf and Rory Pilgrim, commissioned by Radar; a selection of historical pamphlets from the Art of the Pamphlet exhibition; documentation of a series of pamphlet workshops led by artists Freee, Ruth Beale, Ciara Phillips and Little Riot Press and artworks inspired by For & Against workshops led by artists Chiara Dellerba and Sarah Green, and writer Alison Mott.
