Three Interactive artist studios
We’re excited to announce a series of interactive and immersive exhibitions in the brand new Islington Square.
In a first for Partnership Editions, and for London, three artists will transform a glass fronted exhibition space into satellite versions of their studios.
Alexandria Coe, Isabella Cotier and Rose Electra Harris will each be in residence for ten days consecutively this November. The artists’ installations will evolve throughout their residencies via live painting (every day between 12pm - 2pm, for public viewing), each culminating in an exhibition where people can buy the artworks that have been created during this time direct from these studios.
Exact Dates TBC, in the meantime sign-up to find out when we publish the full programme.
