A is for Apple

A is for Apple: An exhibition of apple-y work will be open from 21 Oct – 26 Oct 2017 from 11:00am – 6:00pm at 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning, 198 Railton Rd, Herne Hill, London SE24 0JT.

Bringing together all the aspects of the project, the summative exhibition CULTIVATE: 7500 Stories at 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning in Herne Hill, London, will showcase artworks by three resident artists and six other artists to decipher what cultivation of the apple means today through film, photography, sculpture and performance. There are over 7500 varieties of apples. Each variety holds its own individual story and through new connections with people and places, the apple varieties and stories continue to multiply. With each work of art, the ten artists interpret different cultural stories present in the apple and its dissemination in the modern world, looking at it as a biological manifestation, as a commodity and a cultural artefact.

The exhibition opening and curators’ tour will be on 20 Oct from 5pm – 8:30pm.

Closing event on the 26 Oct from 6pm – 9pm.
