Three University of East London (UEL) students will curate a new exhibition in east London this week. Justine Hounam, Anne Isaksson and Jacqueline Rana, who are all studying for doctorates in fine art, will be showing work by a range of UEL PhD and MA students, BA students, and Mary Ward Centre alumni.
Carolyn Whittaker, Madalena Daniel, B. A Adeyemo and Justine Hounam previously studied at the Mary Ward Centre.
The team behind In Out say it will examine the interplay between internal contemplation and external manifestation, inviting viewers to explore the dual nature of obscured, overlooked, and concealed aspects of the human experience, unearthing narratives often sidelined or buried within conventional historical accounts.
The exhibition is co-curated with Hive Curates, a group of artists, curators and cultural programmers who have organised a series of arts events across London since the organisation was founded in 2019. Alice Walters, the group’s arts and culture programmer welcomed the opportunity to work with artists from UEL, and stressed that the show would have benefits across the community. She said, “The social value work we hope to gain during this exhibition includes a cross-pollination of art through mentorship, the creation of new jobs and the promotion of both up-and-coming, and established artists in the borough”.
