“Ugly Duck are an absolutely integral part of the London art world, facilitating groundbreaking and original events from the most radical artists working today.”
Aphra Shemza, exhibiting artist and curator
From the 1st to the 5th of April, we are super excited to announce that we are organizing a large dynamic multi-media show: EXIT.
Guests will be invited to experience the hidden corners of Ugly Duck’s beautiful Victorian tannery, newly explored by the 30 artists selected by creative producer Deen Atger.
Based around the theme fluidity, EXIT will present a collection of diversified works including; projection mapping, interactive light sculptures, prints, video art, experimental tech & alternative universes. Rising light artists Aphra Shemza, Studio above&below, and Louise Beer, alongside the creative robotic trio Gaze Studio (Irem Bugdayci, Anne-Heloise Duatel , Robert Wuss) and kinetic artist Paul Friedlander, will all be showcasing brand new artworks. On Friday, we will host a special AV show with the collective Resolution. The evening will explore 3D visual perception using transparent screens and a multiple projector setup. More artists will be announced shortly.
Ugly Duck encourages engagement in the arts by working alongside communities and revitalising underused spaces, turning empty buildings into local assets through a curated programme of creative projects. At 47/49 Tanner Street, Ugly Duck has shone light into a magical and complex building.
After seven years providing a stage for the artistic community in London, 2020 will see Ugly Duck embracing new adventures beyond 47/49 Tanner Street. This couldn’t happen without a celebratory exhibition of all of the art forms and works presented along the way.
