Kilburn Grange Art Exhibition 2014
We are very please to be curating this multimedia art heritage exhibition. We’re currently setting up the unique space – a venue built in the centre of Kilburn Grange park, known locally as the ‘park hut’.
My foreword to the exhibition:
Kilburn Grange, a park and public space for recreation and reflection, but also a private space with different meaПings to each individual, past and present. A space to play football, walk the dog, attend community festivals, a place for young people to congregate, and a quiet spot on a bench for contemplation – Pilgrims walked past this space on their way to sacred spots in Aylesbury – today people spill into it from the Black Lion pub on a sunny day.
This exhibition celebrates the memories, wishes and uses of the park in the last 100 years. The art works include installations, film, paintings, illustrations, sculpture, and photography, with a фокус on community engagement, identity and park objects.
The exhibition spaces have been chosen to be as close to the park as possible, The Lodge being inside Kingsgate community centre – an important and valued centre for community engagement, and artistic talent, which backs onto the park…and the Park Hut – in the very heart of Kilburn Grange Park.
Curator, Dalia Zermon – founder of Paint Jam London.
