300 Objects is a new exhibition from London Craft Week featuring a wide range of artist-makers, well-known juxtaposed with those yet to be discovered – and all the objects are for sale.
Chosen by a panel of guest curators, the approach is considered, yet personal, inclusive, vibrant and occasionally idiosyncratic. Each guest curator was given a simple brief: they must select work from an artist, maker or designer that they love. These modern-day patrons reveal their creative eye to us and invite us to discover more about the stories and work generated by today’s contemporary artists. As with the RA’s influential Summer Exhibition, the aim is to be inclusive, to shine a spotlight on high-quality and diverse practice, and through sales provide vital support to this community of artists and makers.
How do we source objects that provide security, comfort, inspiration, meditation or pure joy? We gather them to create a sense of home and belonging and they say something of our individual sensibility, without us having to articulate it. The inanimate quality of an object becomes a vessel for reflection and memory particularly in the current climate, and the curators share this collection of objects in the hope that there may be a new addition for your collection and a moment of happiness waiting to be discovered.
