Tower Hamlets Spring open 2012

Scale and Place, selected by Rise Art and ALISN, Mile End Art Pavilion, 30 March – 7 April 2012

“For the second annual Tower Hamlets Spring Open, ALISN and Rise Art invited artists from around the world to submit work addressing the title themes of Scale and Place. The resulting exhibition is a varied commentary on the sweeping size of the unusual exhibition venue and its place within the socially and visually complex borough of Tower Hamlets. Taken as a representative sample from the large and diverse set of submitted responses, the work of twelve artists both indicts and revels in the cacophony of the host borough. From the literal to the abstract, from the serious to the humorous, viewpoints and commentaries emerge on living conditions, architectural and social scapes, regeneration and degeneration, and the many other dynamic possibilities and limitations of a-place-apart.” (from the ALISN website)
