Ragged Art Event
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
In Spring 2021, in the depths of the darkest lockdown, a group of visual artists created “Through which the light passes”, an exhibition of wall painting, photographs, sculptural interventions, films and live performances at the Ragged School Museum in Mile End. The show was the artists’ varied responses to the evocative spaces of the museum, which once housed Doctor Barnardo’s school for the poorest children of Victorian London. The sublimation of light from darkness was at the core of the exhibition.
The Ragged Art Event presents a film made by Lily Grimes documenting that exhibition alongside live performances. In this new iteration at The Coronet Theatre – which also resonates so powerfully with London’s layered history – we search and listen to the echoes of a time past from a suspended present.
Artists: Hélène Binet, Yong Min Cho, Alexandre da Cunha, Oona Grimes, Jefford Horrigan, Liliane Lijn, Kathy MacCarthy, Antoni Malinowski, Katrina Palmer.
