Print Club London and Help Refugees are inviting you to Choose Love’, a fundraising collection produced to raise money in support of the incredible work of Help Refugees. In early 2018 our director Kate Higginson approached the charity with an idea to make screen prints using the iconic CHOOSE LOVE logo, asking artists to further contribute to a piece by hand finishing. From print making to collage and photography each artwork is a one off and completely unique in its design and available to buy. Artists to date who have worked on the project include Stanely Donwood, Quentin Jones & Noel Fielding and Anish Kapoor. The project launched with an exhibition at Somerset House on World Refugee Day 2018 and the collection has grown since, travelling to Pikes Ibiza, a second show at Somerset House and producing sell out prints for Help Refugees Choose Love pop up store.

The exclusive artworks are on sale via our website and we hope you will join us and Choose Love!

Print Club London have raised over £50,000 for the charity Help Refugees to date.* This couldn’t have been possible without the generosity of our artists using their talent to produce a one-off piece of art for our gallery and our customers who invested in the beautiful art and the cause! Here’s where your money has gone and how much of a positive impact it has had!

*Amount raised as of Sept 2019

…diapers for Lesvos. There are 8000 refugees currently living in Moria camp – which was designed for 1500 people. Help Refugees fund many of the services and support available to people living in there and the diaper programme is a big one as there are almost a thousand babies in the camp.

Refugees4Refugees on Samos

Refugee4Refugees have done incredible work and equipped thousands of people with non-food items over the past months in their distribution centre. Meanwhile all women and children have access to non food items, which consist mainly of clothes, hygiene-items and sleeping bags. In March and April, our partner organised NFI distributions for all male residents of the camp using a ticketing system. Furthermore prams were distributed for babies in their free shop and provided to different projects around the island. New arrivals get 2 sets of everything including a hygiene package, shoes and a jacket. The organisation is still only sustainable actor on the island that provides NFIs in large quantities.

People reached: 4,000

Medical care on Samos

Due to overcrowding on the island, the hospital and the doctor in the camp are overwhelmed. Therefore Help Refugees’ partner Med’equaliteam offer additional medical care. Their clinic is visited daily by 70 – 100 patients and is open 6 days a week. The clinic collaborates with and makes referrals to the hospital. Furthermore, they run medical workshops in the community centres on a weekly basis.

People reached: 600

…providing approximately 1800 food packs containing fresh veg, pulses, spices, rice and oil for unregistered new arrivals, including families, in Northern Greece.

Food on Samos 

Food is still one of the greatest challenges. The people in the Vathi camp on Samos wait in line for hours to pick up a small portion of potatoes, some bread and water. The food provided has low nutritional value and does not cover the needs. Although we are able to offer additional nutritious and healthy food together with our partners at the existing and establishing services, there is still a lack of organisations and volunteers who have the capacity to provide food.

Additional food is provided at the following projects:

We are One‘s safe space for women and babies: The team offers fruit, eggs, fresh salads and drinks for all the participants. Babies under 2 years receive bananas and other snacks. Pregnant women get some extra food, such as nuts. Each Monday, on the ‘pregnant women only’ day, a warm, nutritious meal and a fresh salad is served that is explicitly aimed at the needs of pregnant women.

Mazi Youth Centre run by Still I Rise: Breakfast and lunch is given daily as well as dinner once a week for all the students (unaccompanied children). 

Baobab Community Centre for Families: Light meals are cooked on site and available in the centre. In the last weeks they were preparing up to 250 – 300 meals a day. There is hot tea and water to drink.

Action for Education‘s Banana House: One hot and fresh meal is provided for each of the participants daily. Every month they serve around 2500 meals.

Thanks to your support, together with our partners we are currently looking into options to start providing supplementary food for babies from 6 months – 24 months.

Picasso on Paper

Picasso, Paper and Printmaking, what more could we ask for!

It only been a few years since Tate held third Picasso retrospective, but this show focuses on Picasso’s lifelong engagement with paper and the diverse use of this material.

Picasso on Paper

25th of January – 13th April

“To this day I remember him lost in a mountain of paper”

Picasso on Paper

 

Spanning the artists career from the early blue period right up to his last studio days the exhibition showcases the many creative processes of one of the most inventive artists of our time. You can clearly see throughout the exhibition how the initial studies on paper influenced the materials used in later works.

Picasso on Paper is shown at the Royal Academy until 13th April. We thought it was an incredible show  with such a variety of works that there is something for every Picasso fan.

We swapped the studio for the Southbank to see the highly anticipated Bridget Riley exhibition at the Hayward Gallery.

Bridget Riley

Hayward Gallery

23rd Oct – 26th Jan

 

Spread over two floors of the Hayward Gallery at the Southbank Centre the exhibition brings together paintings drawings and sketches spanning the artists working life from 1947 to present day. Each room is divided by themes that occur in the artists work such as curves, stripes and monochromatic pieces. You can see throughout the rooms how the artist has returned to previous inspirations in her newer works.

 

 

 

Our favourite room was filled with studies and preliminary sketches that allowed the artist to explore various possibilities and patterns before painting the large scale works. There was also work displayed from the artists time spent at art school depicting studies of the human form and patterns with landscapes.

There’s still a chance to catch this inspiring exhibition which questions how we perceive colour and form through the artists visual language. Bridget Riley runs at the Hayward Gallery until 26th of January.

Get some geometry in your life…

If you can’t yet buy your own Bridget Riley then why not treat yourself to some amazing abstract pieces from our gallery.

Now Play This

The annual games festival returns to Somerset House for it’s biggest edition ever. We were invited to the private view to explore the interactive games and experimental design that they had on show.

Now Play This

Somerset House

6th – 14th April 2019

 

This years exhibition focuses on community, the interaction between players and how this feeds into the creative process of some of the most inventive games. Visitors to the festival are invited to play on all of the thought provoking games on display as well as try their hands at creating their own video game that can be played by others.

Some of our favourite games included Octopad, a reimagined 1980’s game which turns a one player game into a collaborative experience with eight different controllers with a button each, encouraging a team effort from all of the players. As well as an installation by We Throw Stitches which sees players battle it out in the ‘ultimate reaction test’ at the their table of changing neon lights. For those that want less screen time in their lives there is also a board game lounge, a zine lounge and two outdoor interactive installations in the courtyard.

 

Now Play This

Test your reactions against Flux by We Throw Switches

 

Games created by festival visitors and a trip down memory lane with Wrong Box by Molly Soda.

 

Amongst the competitive action there are many talks and workshops across the week long festival that are well worth checking out. Now Play This runs as part of London Games Festival so if you’re in the capital make sure you take a look!

Sequentially installed across three galleries, this exhibition presents an entire new body of work by Royal Academician Phyllida Barlow.

_____

PHYLLIDA BARLOW

cul-de-sac

Royal Academy of Arts

23rd Feb – 23rd June 2019

______

Barlow’s early work responded to the Modernist sculpture that had emerged in Britain and Europe in the 1950s and early 1960s. As her practice evolved, she took against its weighty formalism and monumentalism, sensing an imposed morality and gravitated towards Arte Povera in Europe and sculptural developments in the USA.

Barlow continues to explore much of the spirit of these more fragile, but nonetheless confident formal sculptural statements in her own work.

By producing large-scale works and installations from everyday, industrial materials and expedient fabrication processes, Barlow challenges the ideas of monumentally and authority associated with traditional sculptural materials and methods.

Space is one of the starting points for Barlow, she refers to it as the ‘protagonist’ of the work she creates to inhabit it. Not site specific as such, the installations development is however dependent in some part on her response to a particular settings and the to volume and limitations it presents.

This exhibition of Barlow’s work is possibly one of my favourites to date. I was fortunate to see her work at the Venice Biennale in 2017 and its brutal colours and forms in a much darker space felt oppressive and uncomfortable, perhaps that was her intention. However this collection of sculptures feels to me much more coherent and well executed. Perhaps being at home in the RA suits her well. It certainly suits the sculptures and whilst its a small collation one could easily spend hours in the space engaging with the sculptures and as Barlow herself says ‘sculpture needs to be given time, you need to just wait with it and become the moving object that it instant so this action between the still and the moving is incredibly demanding for all.’

Phyllida Barlow is on the at Royal Academy until 23rd June and its well worth a visit if you are near by. Also currently running are the Bill Viola and Renaissance Nudes so give yourself plenty of time to see all three exhibitions.

-Kate Higginson, Director PRINT CLUB LONDON

 

On Monday 25th March we were invited to a preview of the Van Gogh exhibition at Tate Britain. The EY EXHIBITION : VAN GOGH AND BRITAIN is the eighth ground-breaking exhibition supported through the EY Tate Arts partnership.

______

27th March – 11 August 2019

Tate Britain

Open Daily 10.00 – 18.00

______

The exhibition is the first major event to explore the impact of British culture on Van Gogh as well as the legacy of his art in the works of British painters.  The exhibition also explores both how Van Gogh was inspired by British art, literature and culture throughout his career and how he in turn inspired British artists, from Vanessa Bell to Francis Bacon.

Bringing together the largest group of Van Gogh paintings shown in the UK for nearly a decade, the exhibition includes over 50 works by the artist from public and private collections around the world.

Aside from being a large collection of works the exhibition amazingly works its way through a side of Van Gogh that was central to creating his works, his mental health. During the course of his life he battled with mental illness and spent many years within a psychiatric unit. During our curators tour Michel Drieseen, from EY, spoke of how ket to the success of the exhibition is the discussion of dignity and humanity which Van Gogh applies to his subject. Theres always a sense of affection in his portraits and the places he studies. This is where i think the exhibition comes into its own, exploring Van Gogh’s personal struggles and allowing the visitor to talk openly about mental health and how in the 21st century we bring normality and encourage discussion around this issue. The language used on the walls of the exhibition is a far cry from the usual wordy type we see so often in gallery spaces, this in itself feels inclusive and feels like a huge effort has been made to talk and provide a space even within the very walls of the gallery for conversations in a safe comfortable place. And what better place to be to do so, surrounded by some of the great works by the master himself.

If you have time spend an afternoon walking and exploring the rooms of Tate Britain, its most certainly one of their most successful exhibitions in many ways. We loved it.

 

William Crozier Flowers Gallery

We spent our Friday morning at Flowers Gallery exploring the amazing work of William Crozier. The first UK exhibition showing Crozier’s screen prints; the show is devoted to rarely seen prints produced between 1994 – 2010. William Crozier Flowers Gallery

 

William Croziers energetic and vibrant prints explore landscapes and imagined still lifes through bold patterns and textures. Italian and English landscapes merge in to one through his use of tropical, Mediterranean hues.

 

William Crozier Flowers Gallery

William Crozier Flowers Gallery

 

From the 1990’s onwards Crozier has worked with expert printers in both Dublin and Verona, Italy in a collaborative process to bring his paintings to life through the medium of screen print.

William Crozier Flowers Gallery

The amazing, vivid colours and painterly textures that can be achieved through the screen printing process replicate William Croziers energetic painting marks.

The exhibition is a great example of how screen printing can be used to recreate other processes and explores a wide variety of techniques. It’s only on for one more week so make sure you don’t miss out!

Here at Print Club we always want to give you the inside scoop, we recently visited the House of Illustration’s latest exhibition of pop artist, social activist and nun, Corita Kent, ‘Power Up’. This is an exhibition you don’t want to miss! The show is filled to the brim with vibrancy, colour and joyousness even though the pieces within the exhibition deal with controversial topics and Corita Kent provided a new perspective on topics such as racism, misogyny and war.


Location: House of Illustration, Kings Cross
Running until 12th May 2019
Opening Hours:
Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 5.30pm
Sunday 11am – 5.30pm

Designed by the acclaimed Fraser Muggeridge studio, the exhibition will feature 70 screen prints showing the evolution of Corita’s work.

In the early 1960s she juxtaposed religious texts with advertising slogans, capturing the clamour and commercialism of LA’s post-WWII financial boom. Her 1965 screenprint power up derived from a gasoline advert, while her 1967 work come alive appropriated the iconic Pepsi-Cola slogan as an exuberant affirmation. Corita said of LA, “Up and down the highways we see words…that read almost like contemporary translations of the psalms for us to be singing on our way.” However, her 1964 print in homage to Mary, the juiciest tomato of all, was regarded as sacrilege by the church and banned from being displayed.

In the late 1960s Corita increasingly used art as protest against racism, misogyny, poverty and war. Working within the confines of America’s most conservative diocese, her voice was hugely influential in the country’s anti-authority shift, capturing the spirit of the anti-Vietnam war movement, civil rights movement and feminism. Her 1969 screenprints layered documentary material from LifeNewsweek and Time magazines – Corita’s “contemporary manuals of contemplation” – with song lyrics, poetry and quotes set against psychedelic day-glo colours. These include 1969’s if i, promoting compassion in the face of violence after Martin Luther King’s assassination.


Corita Kent, born Frances Elizabeth Kent and also known as Sister Mary Corita Kent, was an American Roman Catholic religious sister, artist, and educator. She worked almost exclusively with silkscreen, also known as serigraphy, pushing back the limitations of the two-dimensional medium by the development of innovative methods. Kent’s emphasis on printing was partially due to her wish for democratic outreach, as she wished for affordable art for the masses.Her artwork, with its messages of love and peace, was particularly popular during the social upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s.


 

Tracey Emin White Cube Gallery

 

We headed to the opening of a Fortnight of Tears by Tracey Emin at the White Cube.  The show encompasses the entire gallery and this major exhibition includes sculpture, painting, photography and video. There’s also an intimate look at Emins’ personal diaries and sketchbooks, giving a deep look into the artists emotive larger scale pieces.

 

Tracey Emin

 

White Cube Gallery

6th February – 7th April 2019

In her new paintings Tracey Emin explores the human form and emotions of loss, anxiety and physical trauma through energetic mark making and a subdued palette. Deep red blood stain tones and muted pinks show the connection between birth and death as she reflects on powerful events from her past .

 

Tracey Emin

Tracey Emin White Cube

 

The female form is also celebrated through large bronze sculptures such as The Mother and two other sculptures domineering the main gallery. The elongated limbs and distorted figures resemble the same fluid energy of her canvas paintings and there is an element of passion and angst within the pieces. The exhibition also shows an intimate look into her sketchbooks and diaries, with drawings and anecdotes from her archives.

 

 

 

Tracey Emin

 

This exhibition is a truly in depth exploration of Tracey Emins work and we highly recommend taking a trip South of the river to see it.

A Fortnight of Tears is on display at the White Cube in Bermondsey until the 7th of April 2019.

Anni-Albers

We recently took a trip to the Tate Modern to explore the amazing new exhibition showcasing the work of Anni Albers. As the first major exhibition of her work in the UK the extensive collection explores the career of the Bauhaus artist from her well known weavings to unseen screen prints and original paintings.

Albers studied at the famous Bauhaus school in Weinmar, before moving to America with her husband Josef and studying at the experimental Black Mountain College. A pioneer in textile design she explored the relationship between functionality and aesthetic and was heavily inspired by grid like architectural forms. She looked to explore a new modern language through a traditional craft process.

Anni Albers Tate Modern

The retrospective exhibition shows a lot of the work made throughout her time in the Bauhaus As well as Albers personal projects the exhibition also shows her more commercial textiles including fabrics for hotels and the drapes for the Rockefella’s guest house. There is also an amazing collection of antique textiles from around the world and you can see the influence of the couples travels on her creations.

 

 

The exhibition runs until January 27th 2019.

Tickets and more information can be found here.

Charlie Gould is an illustrator and print-maker, specialising in poster-design.

Originally from Farnborough, Charlie decided to travel very little to attend Southampton Solent University, where he earned a First in Illustration in 2016.

Since then Charlie has been working freelance as an illustrator and designer for such clients as Courtney Barnett, Paper & Cloth Design Studio, and Kindred Agency.

Charlie’s work itself is largely a selfish mash-up of everything he loves. Ephemera, crappy films, pulp novels, and Americana, which are all drawn upon regularly to influence and inform the illustrations that he creates.

Award winning architect Kody Kato has pushed the limits of GF Smith’s new Japanese paper collection in this amazing installation. We were lucky enough to meet the designer himself as he explained the gravity defying exhibit, constructed from over 5,500 sheets of ‘Takeo’ paper. Using traditional Sonobe origami techniques the sculpture took 6 days to install and will transform over time as the paper stretches and shifts.

Make sure you book an appointment at GF Smith’s London show space by the end of June to catch this intriguing exhibition and explore their vast paper collection whilst you are there. You can also practice your paper aeroplane making skills and try to make it on to the Perfect Plane leader board (our skills definitely need improving).

The distinctive style, quirky nature and attention to detail doesn’t waiver in Wes Anderson’s latest creation ‘Isle of Dogs.’ Print Club popped down to The Store, 180 The Strand to take a peek at Anderson’s creations.  This exhibition offers a behind-the-scenes look at 17 sets and puppets for the stop-motion picture.

You can get up close and take in all the detail while, the movie score plays in the background! If beautiful sets, puppetry and the soundtrack playing around you isn’t enough additionally, there’s a noodle bar pop-up inspired by Megasaki restaurant that is home to one of the characters in the film.

The exhibition runs until 5th April 2018, so you don’t have long to catch a glimpse at the inner workings of Wes Anderson’s latest creation!

For one night only we’re transforming our printing studio into a christmas market, it’ll be filled to the brim with works from our artists, technicians and studio members! It’ll be the perfect opportunity for you to pick up some hand-made stocking fillers, here’s just a few of makers who will be at the market…



Not only are we a screen-printing studio & gallery, there is also a Fine Art space ‘Absorb Arts’ which is charity-led and created by our Director Fred Higginson to house fine artists & painters enabling them to work as artists. All the members of the studio are welcoming you to see their working environment and will have pieces available for sale.


As if a xmas market, open studio and mulled cider wasn’t enough we’ve also hung our East London gallery floor to ceiling with affordable, limited edition screen prints for you to snap up!


We recently held a Preview Evening ahead of our upcoming Blisters: The Paperback Edition which you may have seen on our social media. We gave our guests a little taste of what is to be expected for the our show in October. We would like to say a HUGE thank you to, Alexis Foreman, Lucinda Mitra, Emily Murray, Vikki Pearson, Emma Jane Palin, Natasha Nuttall and Tun Shin Chang for coming down and taking part, we had a lovely evening.

We also want to say thank you to Castle Gibson for letting us use their space and Sip Smith for providing refreshments throughout the evening, and last but by no means least Artist Residence for an incredible dinner!

2017-Printern-Show

Here it is our second Print-ern Show! We will be showcasing the amazing talents of our former Print-erns Rozalina Burkova and Francesca Tiley with their exclusive prints which were produced with us during their Printernship here at Print Club London!

 _________________________________________________________________

Date: Thursday 14th September 2017

Time: 6 – 9pm

Location: Print Club London Gallery, Unit 3 10-28 Millers Ave, E8 2DS

 _________________________________________________________________

After the brilliant success of our last ‘Printernship,’ we’re super excited to share with you our latest, equally as inspiring offering from illustrators Francesca Tiley and Rozalina Burkova!

Towards the end of last year, we selected both girls to take part in our rewarding ‘Printernship’ scheme, allowing them to create a number of prints, whilst developing their own personal styles.

The ‘Printernship’ opportunity allows recent graduates to print and create work in our studio, coupled with free desk space and guidance from fellow printers and technicians. Offering financial support along with our own creative direction and printing expertise, the scheme results in a series of prints from each artist exclusive to Print Club.

The exhibition will feature original works, limited edition screenprints and on one off ceramics by each artist and will also be the debut of their exciting collaboration together, with hand painted murals and exclusive prints available on the opening night.

LAPP have kindly sponsored the entire evening with their amazing Poptails! So make sure you come down and have a Poptail with us!

Lounging Lady // Edition of 30 // £100

Rozalina is a freelance illustrator and occasional animator based in Barcelona. Born and raised in Bulgaria she moved to London to study at Central Saint Martins College where she graduated in 2015.  

Her work is a mix of hand drawn and digital elements united with the magic of Photoshop. Her animations are 2D, jittery and really fun to make. She enjoy rich colours, imperfect lines and subjects caught in dreamy states.

Francesca-Tiley

Francesca Tiley

Dancing Shoes // Edition of 50 // £60

Tequila Time // Edition of 30 // £90

Francesca’s work is defined by vibrant colours, decorative patterns and playful lettering. She is influenced by the naïve and expressive qualities of folk art and has a big love for anything hand made. Having recently completed her BA at Brighton University, she hopes to learn more about sign painting and other traditional crafts.
