About this event

Join Spitalfields Studios artists and guests for our GALVANISE exhibition PRIVATE VIEW.

Join us for a timely reflection on collective struggle, action and hope, spanning themes of migration, oppression, climate change, technology and mental health - through galvanizing visual art, screenings, live performances and more.

Meet a lone sailor figure braving the bluster and bluff of Brexit. Join artists creating collaborative unions of tape, movement and signage. Witness a performer taking steps backwards, even as democracy retreats in Hong Kong. Consider a charred tree drooping in the face of climate change. Watch as a woman, wrapped in earth-sprinkled sackcloth, rolls to retrace the footsteps of her ancestors. Indulge in your own 10-minute portraiture, refreshments, postcards, prints and zines.

Galvanize. A gathering of words, poetry, music, film, performance, installation, photography, painting, collage, fine arts and more. Participating artists include:Art work by:
