A Celebration & Exhibition | Jo Coumbe in conversation Jasmine Harrison - youngest woman to row across the Atlantic

About this event

Artists for BLUE

Please join us for a celebratory exhibition in aid of the Blue Marine Foundation on Tuesday 29th from 5 pm until 7.30 pm at 127 Sloane St. Dive into the ocean and immersive yourself in the work of 26 international artists at a reception hosted by Chene Bleu, opened by Jo Coumbe in conversation with Jasmine Harrison - the youngest woman to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Be inspired by these powerful voices for ocean conservation, and join us in making a blue wave.

To see the catalogue:

Blue Minds, an artist-led collective comprising 26 world-leading contemporary creatives, frames the ocean as an endless source of inspiration and highlights why a healthy ocean matters. This fully immersive show offers soundscapes, photography, installations, paintings, wearable art brands, ceramics, films, sculptures, workshops, talks, interactive media and discussion rooms. Inspired by the tireless work of marine biologists and in association with the Blue Marine Foundation, Blue Minds exhibition makes explicit the mutuality artists share with scientists. Both have a deep, constant observation of their subject; both are seeking to make us aware of problems like over-fishing and pollution, and both use creativity to find solutions and give us hope. Whilst science gives us the tools to understand the complexity behind the beauty of nature’s integrated systems – such as the ocean’s “hope spots” documented in the film Blue Mission – art enables us to express our feelings about the world and provides a point of connection for the viewer.

Blue Minds features a stellar line up of artists, co-curated by AH studios, Julia Campbell-Carter and Nico Earle including: Mariele Neudecker, Anne de Carbuccia, Andrea Hamilton, Marcus Lyon, Emma Critchley, Bridget Smith, Gregor Hildebrandt, Callum Innes, Phillip Hunt, Carola Dixon, Gideon Rubin, Anna Barriball, Emma Elliott, Kate Braine, Renelio Marin, Jordi Raga, Crystal Fischetti, Karolina Woolf, Dawit Abebe, Josephina Nelimarkka, Adrian Houston, Sophie Von Hellerman and Kukoff. Fresh from the successful Light Works show at AH Studio, they are joined by painter Aigana Gali, and fine wearable art by Elisabetta Cipriani Gallery, with Maya Sanbar creating an immersive experience for this show and Stories of Art who will be providing two lectures. What these artists share is a love for our blue spaces, and a commitment to documenting or responding to what is unseen or hidden from the public.

Organiser Andrea Hamilton

Organiser of Blue Marine Foundation Exhibition Private View and Drinks Reception

Andrea Hamilton is a multi award-winning UK-based conceptual artist and photographer best known for her extensive images of the ocean, natural phenomena and the Kelvin scale. Her work encompasses numerous photographic genres including portraiture, still life, long exposure and landscape. Her systematic collection of subjects within a strict conceptual framework (Chroma, Tidal Resonance and Luminous Icescapes) over extended time periods has resulted in comprehensive archives. These are retrospectively organised according to common visual characteristics (movement, colour, light) into series which highlight specific themes: the nature of time and memory, our relationship with the environment, colour theory, being, and the representation of truth. Hamilton work is held in numerous private and corporate collections, including The Vault 100, and has published numerous books, including London Everyday for the Mayor of London. Her most recent accolade was Gold at the Tokyo International Foto Awards, 2020. www.andreahamilton.com @andreahamilton @_thecolourproject
