Get the Message Exhibition: Agency / Autonomy / Automation

Adam Walker, Emma McGarry

9 - 17 July 2016

9 - 17 July 2016, Artists' Studio 

Get the Message is a Camden Arts Centre project working with young people and teachers from local Special Educational Needs (SEN) schools and artists. During the 2015 –16 academic year, artists Adam J. B. Walker and Emma McGarry have worked with students from The Bridge and The Village Schools, using the exhibitions and their experiences at Camden Arts Centre as a starting point towards creating artwork.

The theme for the year was formed around a word matrix, considering ideas such as gesture, risk and choice as starting points for the workshops. This exhibition presents a space for ‘happenings’ and will be activated at various points throughout the show.

During June 2016 the artists carried out a research residency to explore the collaborative practice that has developed during their time leading the project. This culminates in a performance which takes place during the exhibition celebration, and families and young artists from the participating schools will be activating and occupying the space throughout the exhibition.
