Tom Pope’s practice stretches across photography, film and performance, often using traditional methods in a new, playful and collaborative way. In 2019, Pope’s One Square Club went on display at Frieze, Los Angeles where visitors could experience the world’s smallest and most exclusive members club, complete with a bar, games and interactive experience with the artist himself. Pope has also been a workshop facilitator for a number of years, working at Camden Arts Centre, Archisle and Arnolfini Gallery.
Working across a broad range of mediums from installation, animation, collage, sculpture and drawing, Anne Harild’s practice sees collaborative projects emerge through public installations and workshops. In 2014, Harild led Tracing the Line, a project for Art on the Underground, where local schools explored four tube stations, uncovering patterns and shapes that were translated into three-dimensional works, and ultimately displayed on posters throughout the London tube network. Anne Harild has also worked as a workshop facilitator at Tate Britain, Camden Arts Centre, William Morris Gallery and Frieze Art Fair.
Rosemary Cronin’s research based practice explores gender, psychoanalysis, subcultures and subversion, realised through film, performance, print and sculpture. To mark International Women’s Day, Cronin recently took part in You Burn Me, a film and performance night at Freud Museum, focussed on the issue of burnout. Cronin’s research drives the education side of her practice through lectures and workshops, and has worked at South London Gallery, V&A, Photographers Gallery and Wallace Collection.
