Taking place in London College of Communication’s Upper Gallery, the exhibition features works inspired by one of South London’s most eclectic historic collections, the Cuming Museum Collection.The fourteen artists and writers involved present photography, illustration, performance, installation, artist film, creative writing and participatory workshops.

The exhibition steps away from the traditional ways of presenting museum objects and museum subjects. Instead, each contributor has used ideas raised by the objects and stories, choosing items or aspects which have captured their imaginations. They have presented their choices according to their own artistic methods, mediums, inspirations and practice.

At this moment in the Cuming’s continuing story, the exhibition explores innovative and alternative ways of using these collections which imagines and re-imagines the lives that were lived here before, their preoccupations, beliefs and ways of life.

Exhibition Launch Event 22nd March 2018  6pm to 8.30pm including “Object Actions Choreography” – a live performance by Harold Offeh at 7pm.
