GUCCI UNVIELS ITS FINAL PHASE OF GUCCI CIRCOLO SHOREDITCH, WHERE HOME BY RONAN MCKENZIE PRESENTS ‘COLLECTIVE PROCESSES’, A MULTI-MEDIA EXHIBITION
London, Tuesday 14th December – Two months after first opening its doors, the multisensory, temporary, retail space Gucci Circolo Shoredtich, will enter into its third and final phase. For this final phase, HOME by Ronan Mckenzie will present the group exhibition, Collective Processes, within the space.
Collective Processes is a multi-media exhibition bringing together a special curation of Black Women Artists within HOME’s wider community, featuring the works of Natasha Muluswela, Lorelle Aboagye, Chiizii, Sandra Daniel, Abena Lamptey, De’Anne Crooks, Merissa Hylton, Rayvenn D’Clarke, Kelly Jay, Tonique Sewell, Courtenay Welcome, Memunatu Barrie, Glory Samjolly, Rubee Samuel and Jo Sealy.
These 15 artists represent an impressive breadth of talent and creative practices, spanning photography, sculpture, painting, textiles and videography, with many multidisciplinary artists among the fold. Over the course of the past year these artists have become part of HOME’s extended family.
Whilst many of these artists take inspiration from a broad range of subject matter, the work exhibited is linked across two major themes. The first of these is histories, as many of the artists consider the establishing, telling or archiving of them in some form. The second centres contemporary observations of culture, heritage and identity, through both personal and collective experiences. This exhibition looks to display the strength in the collective and in the artistic expression achieved when disparate ideas and perspectives are able to align in one space. Collective Processes presents these works in conversation with one another, in the spirit of one of HOME’s core aims, to provide a new infrastructure for creativity.
The façade of the Gucci Circolo Shoreditch will be reimagined with an artwork by artist and previous Gucci collaborator, Joy Yamusangie, titled ‘A New Love’ which was created as part of a collection of limited edition prints by LGBTQ+ artists curated by Russell Tovey for Pride 2021.
