Crafting a Difference at the Argentine Ambassador’s Residence

October 4th 2021 @ 12:00 pm - October 10th 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Crafting a Difference is privileged and honoured to be presenting a new show for London Craft Week at the Argentine Ambassador’s official residence with support from the Crafts Council and QEST. This is a rare opportunity to visit this historic residence designed by Thomas Cubitt, in the heart of Belgravia, where some of the world’s finest contemporary objects will sit within this opulent interior, in rooms including the Ambassador’s office, the formal dining room and the grand ballroom.

Curated by Andrea Harari and Brian Kennedy, the exhibition will bring together over 200 works in ceramics, wood, glass, metal, textiles and paper by over 30 artists carefully selected from the five galleries, Cavaliero Finn, jaggedart, MADEINBRITALY, Ting Ying Gallery and Vessel Gallery. These artworks will populate the rooms offering an inspiring dialogue with the fabric of the building, as contemporary sits alongside the grand historical chandeliers, works of art, furniture, tapestries and mirrors within the building. Featured makers include QEST Carole Bamford Scholar Alice Walton, QEST Allchurches Trust Scholar Katalina Caliendo, QEST Jenifer Emery Scholar Abigail Booth, QEST Winch Design Scholar Max Bainbridge, QEST Howdens Scholar Hannah Tounsend, QEST Scholar Jenny Pickford and QEST Johnnie Walker Scholar Frances Priest.

Each gallery will also present a curated site-specific installation within some of the rooms, with jaggedart presenting a ‘congregation’ by Denise de Cordova and a tea installation by Charlotte Hodes in the Dining room.  MADEINBRITALY will present an installation by Andrea Salvatori and Vessel Gallery will present installations by Chris Day and Amy Cushing.   Cavaliero Finn will be creating a monochrome tableau exploring pattern and form with a new collection by Björk Haraldsdóttir.  Ting Ying Gallery will show work from Carol McNicoll, Su Xianzhong, Jeffry Mitchell, Zhao Jinya and Vezzini & Chen.

The exhibition is free, but booking is essential at www.craftingadifference.com
