@ Bosse & Baum, temporary project space
Vanessa da Silva
Bosse & Baum have invited the artists Guendalina Cerutti, Vanessa da Silva, Lindsey Mendick, Paloma Proudfoot, Rosie Reed and Rosie Vohra to use an unoccupied part of the gallery to show a body of work titled Herland.
Drawing on the feminist sci-fi classic, Herland, the artists involved wish to disprove stereotypical expectations of what an all-female environment fosters, just as the women of Herland surprise the expectations of the trio of male intruders in Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s novella. What the explorers find is neither a warring nation of cat-fighting women nor a subservient acquiescing nun-like society but a utopia of fiercely independent and physically empowered yet respectful women, living together in peace and without hunger.
Bosse & Baum have invited these 6 artists on a residency, with 1 week to work with 1 another and respond to the space. The artists will organise a private view for the evening of 17th March that will include performances and readings from the novella. Then on Saturday 25th Bosse & Baum and Herland will be hosting their first visual book club. We will be inviting the public to come to the gallery and discuss the novels important themes of feminism, sisterhood and utopias in relation to the artworks on display.
Whilst Herland is not strictly a part of the gallery programme, we believe in making use of opportunities to share our space when able to. With an open vision and sensibility, this makes sense to us, even though a commercial gallery. We are working together to provide opportunities for artists to exhibit their work, and for new audiences to learn about both their work and the gallery. As we develop, we are always trying out new ways of working, and this is one example.
The Temporary Research Centre for Stories, Myths, Tales and Fables is an informal investigatory project hosted by Nicky Deeley and Mark Scott-Wood. The intent is to create an informal hub for the exploration and study of anecdotes, such as local legends, but also to examine the ways in which stories can best be told and documented.
Visitors to the research centre are invited to regale their tales and fables inspired by the work of Candida Powell-Williams and her exhibition The Vernacular History of the Golden Rhubarb using the objects on show as stimulus. Stories maybe told by word-of-mouth, singing, drawing, dancing, in fact by any method the storyteller deems appropriate.
If you would to participate please email email@example.com; if you would maybe like to participate, or definitely observe the workshop, please also email firstname.lastname@example.org
[Nicky Deeley studied at Royal College of Art and Mark Scott-Wood studied at Byam Shaw School of Art. They met at OUTPOST Studios in Norwich where they now both live and work.]
Bosse & Baum, in collaboration with Portable Print Studio, is hosting a print workshop as part of The Vernacular History of the Golden Rhubarb, which will enable each participant to screen print their very own poster. Using the mono-screen print technique participants can choose a preferred design* from our selection of pre-exposed screens and create a unique one-off print by painting various colours directly onto the screen.

WAVES brings together video installation, printmaking, sculpture and painting to explore gesture and stillness in relation to the idea of private and public space. Invited artists present different attitudes and strategies, from improvisation and mannerism to staging and choreography, exposing the movements between the intimate and the shared.
To coincide with the exhibition, Turf are hosting a programme of related events including an Artists talk & Q&A, Film screenings, Family Art Fun Day, Reading Group and a Lunchtime Artist Crit. For further details on the programme please visit turf-projects.com. The exhibition and events were made possible with the generous support of the Arts Council England & Centrale Shopping Centre, Croydon.
Luke Burton‘s work examines across painting, drawing, video and sculpture the dependent relationship between contemporary art and decoration. His recent series of paintings and drawings explore how personal and collective forms of ambivalence are found in attitudes towards aesthetics, archetypal forms and male identity. Footballs and Fountains serve as ongoing symbolic tropes, drawn in an expressive and mannered style with a backdrop of tightly rendered patterns derived from Victorian tile designs.

You are invited to join the artist collective UA in an afternoon workshop of collaborative practice, hosted at Chisenhale Studios by UA in collaboration with Please Stand By. The workshop will be loosely structured around group writing, making, vocalising, movement, and meditation, culminating in a collectively improvised ritual. Both artists and non-artists are welcome.
Over the past three years UA has developed a working process for participatory ritual-performances. But the nature of our practice has largely been hermetic, most of it taking place on retreats, in remote locations, with only members of the group there to witness it.

// About UA
UA formed in 2013 in order to investigate the aesthetic possibilities of religious practice, mythology and ritual. Each member of the project began with some variant of a basic problem: how to fit our artwork into new structures of meaning that would feed back into the work, that would be valid in their own right? i.e. outside of the gallery system, the poetry reading, the google group, the seminar, the spectacle. UA develops and maintains a fragile structure of participatory ritual-performances, involving sculpture, text, sound and movement.

Marcelle Joseph Projects is delighted to present At Home Salon: Double Acts, an exhibition in the private residence of the curator in Ascot and showcasing artworks by 14 artists. For the third biennial edition of this exhibition – subtitled Double Acts – Marcelle Joseph has collaborated with a different London-based curator, gallerist, journalist or artist in each of seven different rooms of her home. Each “double act” curating team has in turn chosen two artists to show in their designated area. The collaborating curators include (in alphabetical order): artist Rebecca Ackroyd, Bosse & Baum gallerist Lana Bountakidou, Arcadia_Missa gallerist Rozsa Farkas, independent curator Valentina Fois, The Sunday Painter gallerist Will Jarvis, freelance arts writer Anna McNay and Emalin curator Leopold Thun. Expect the unexpected – artistic combinations in the domestic context away from the white cube that jolt, inspire, provoke and invite conversations of all sorts.
Special midnight artist-led walks around selected Art Night projects on 2 July (10pm to midnight). Bosse & Baum has selected five artists, including Miriam Austin, Nicole Vinokur and May Hands, to design the artist-led walks.

YGRG is visiting London as part of AIROOM residency programme:
Airoom is a project by Juste Kostikovaite inspired by ‘Tinder Swinton’, a character tired of Tindering, but is also in reference to artist’s temporary living places being made visible during residencies. Airoom accommodates artists and curators in empty rooms belonging to curators sacrificing their AIRBNB income. In 2015 Vilnius Airoom hosted Chosil Kill (NO/UK) (via Istambul and Kiev). In 2015 London Airoom is hosting curator Zane Onckule (LV) and artist&curator duo Dorota Gaweda & Egle Kulbokaite (LT/PL/SE/DE/CH). Airoom is supported by KKNORD and Arts Council England.
We’ll be going to celebrate the launch of Issue VII of E.R.O.S., ‘The Interior’, at Ditto Gallery this Thursday November 19th. The event will also mark the private view of an exhibition put together in relation to the issue’s theme, and includes artists Laura Eldret, Luke Burton, Marlene Haring and Claire Baily.
The Czech Centre London and The Performance Studio present Talk, So I Can See You, a film programme curated by Pil and Galia Kollectiv with recent work by Roman Štětina, accompanied by London-based artists Billy Howard Price, Molly Palmer and Mike Harvey, who will screen selected video works and excerpts from their on-going film projects. In a live, semi-improvised format Štětina will respond by selecting his own film and video works in relation to the topics and images presented.
The screening programme will be followed by a round-table discussion chaired by Pil and Galia Kollectiv with all four artists, in which they will be talking about editing, the relationship between sound and vision in cinema, and further ideas that emerge from the work. The evening will culminate in a screening of Roman Štětina’s recent video work Lost Cause (2014), which he will accompany with a live DJ set.
This event is taking place in the context of Štětina’s forthcoming residency in London, supported by the Czech Centre London and will be hosted by Bosse & Baum.

Josh Wright & Guillaume Vandame | discussion with Cibelle Cavalli Bastos
**REFLECTIONS: The body from within**
Saturday 10 October | 5pm – 6pm
Following Wright & Vandame’s exhibition at fig-2, they join us in discussion with Cibelle Cavalli Bastos at Bosse & Baum. The artists explore sites intended for art, as spaces for physical activity, prioritising the body and mind to determine meaning of the space . The work of Wright & Vandame references Claes Oldenburg’s soft hard sculpture as well as Carl Andre’s minimal aesthetic and Christo and Jean-Claude’s collaborative, environmental and site specific approach. Much like Allan Kaprow’s happenings, the duo intertwines artistic input with physical engagement, and questions the body’s potential to transmit notions of identity, gender orientation and character. Wright & Vandame question our contemporary body image aesthetics and provoke conflating masculine and feminine archetypes and forms.
They will be discussing their work in an informal setting at Bosse & Baum. Please RSVP for a place: email@example.com
Ashtanga Yoga & Breathing Bones workshop with ROSINA BONSU Saturday 10 October – Sunday 11 October, 2015
Calm the mind, create a sense of well-being, realign perception, strengthen the understanding of your physical body, whilst practicing yoga and meditation in Cibelle Cavalli Bastos’ Wave Function Salon at Bosse & Baum.
Yoga leads us beyond the body, mind, beyond our perceived surfaces and, via movement, into our own subjectivity.
Rosina is joining us at Bosse & Baum to lead a workshop which seeks to calm the mind to create a sense of well-being, whilst promoting physical health by strengthening and toning the body. The Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series is a guided practice, a moving meditation, which follows the lead of the breath and which allows time to further explore specific asanas. Breathing Bones is a series of relaxed postures and placements of the body. Together with the breath and gravity these aim to free the joints, release the muscles, realign the skeletal structure and balance the body. Click here to read more about Rosina’s background.
The workshop is open to everyone, whether attending regular classes or as a one-off workshop.
Saturday 10 October | Ashtanga Yoga | 10am – 11.45am
Breathing Bones | 12 noon – 1:15pm
Cibelle Cavalli Bastos Q&A w/ Rosina Bonsu | 1:45pm – 2:30pm

Hello beautiful soulful friend!
——> you want to learn how to twerk?
——-> you want to do it in a sex positive, body positive environment?
———>you want to know more about the spiritual, political, and queer background behind this movement?
———> you want to explore what it feels like to be looked at when you manifest divine pride and you locate it on your ass?
———>you want to enjoy good, warm, fun times.
Twerkshops are a platform to share knowledges tied to our root chakra, the “ghetto of the body”, where the kundalini energy lies, waiting for you to summon her.
——> we’ll see how to manifest this energy and her joyful vitality
——-> we’ll look into how this energy can be perceived in public spaces
——-> we’ll reflect on how this energy can be harnessed, protected and used to transform hostile spaces into safe spaces
This twerkshop was open to all bodies- consent, respect and compassion are the only guidelines.

Join us at Art15 this week as we present a solo booth in the Emerge section (EM3) with Caterina Silva, daily 5pm performances by Bea Bonafini and a project with Holly Hendry in P16.
The fair finishes on Saturday 23 May 2015.
This panel discussion will be taking place at Bosse & Baum on occasion of Luke Burton’s solo exhibition Filigree Endings, which continues until 27 March 2015.
What is the relevance of the decorative and ornamental within contemporary art and culture?
Contemporary art’s relationship to the decorative and ornamentation is rich, ambivalent and complex. As many current artists are plundering the mine of visual tropes offered by the history of the decorative, questions surrounding craft, taste, elitism and the function of art emerge.
What is the relationship between the decorative with pleasure and beauty in contemporary art? Is a critical understanding of the decorative necessary for contemporary artists? How easy is it to locate the decorative in contemporary art? Is most art ‘merely’ decorative? Is it (still) a dirty word?
The panelists Luke Burton, Dave Beech, George Henry Longly, Sami Jalili and Richard Wentworth, chaired by Lucy Soutter, will seek to probe these questions and look to elucidate their own understanding of the decorative and ornament within contemporary art and society.
