Curated and produced the opening of the Somerset House Studios, an evening showcasing over 35 projects including performances, installations, exhibitions and live music from the first resident artists and guests.
Somerset House Studios are a new experimental workspace in the centre of London connecting artists, makers and
thinkers with audiences. The Studios are a platform for the development of new creative projects and collaboration, promoting work that pushes bold ideas, engages with urgent issues and pioneers new technologies.
The launch was a curated evening of installations, performances, live music, screenings and space interventions to unveil the new studios, the residents and the future of this new space. The event took over the New Wing at Somerset House with over 30 installations and performances by the first Studio residents, unfolding across three floors of the building. From an intimate performance by composer Anna Meredith to a special reworking of the legendary LOVERBOY club night, there was a full curated programme to discover.
