With Matthew Walkerdine, Catherine Cameron, James McCann, Sarah Forrest and Florrie James
Atelier Monday, The Mentorship Show is a group exhibition with our Atelier Monday mentorship group: Cara Bonewitz, Toby Mills, Leila Smith, and Ewan Mitchell. These artists were paired with Matthew Walkerdine, Catherine Cameron, James McCann, Sarah Forrest and Florrie James over three months as a means of honing and developing their practices. The specific opportunity for objective criticism, a sense of community, and the free use of exhibition space in an emerging gallery is what created the framework for the programme.
Discussions were held by Adam Benmakhlouf, Amelia Bywater, and Kitty Anderson about the nature of curation, artistic collaboration, and community spaces.
The artists work in various fields and with a variety of materials, and presented video work, a performance, installations and mischievous sculptures.
The exhibition marked the outcome of a 3 month mentorship programme at 16 Nicholson Street.
