Gatherings - an exhibition by the Working Class Creatives Database

In collaboration with SET Studios, the Working Class Creatives Database is proud to present Gatherings, a new exhibition from 28 artists with a private view on the 3 August 2023 at SET Woolwich, SEIS 6BU, and then open by appointment until the 17 August.

Gatherings brings together twenty eight artists across a range of disciplines as part of a collaborative show between SET and the Working Class Creatives Database. Made up of work from a host of different disciplines, though touching on installation, sculpture, photography, video and text, the exhibition offers a variety of approaches to making and thinking, with Gatherings distilling them into a space of collaborative belonging.

To gather, to bring together. Gathering is a process of thoughtful contemplation, a cathartic approach to collecting. Artists in Gatherings have approached the making of works with a level of intimacy and trust through muted tones and care for their subject and practice. A softness runs throughout the works, balanced by a structural rhythm created by the ways in

which they examine the world around them. Intimacy bleeds through familiarity, created by that softness of touch.

Seren Metcalfe (Director of WCCD and Curator): “The exhibition showcases the breadth of working-class voices, representing diversities, histories, places, and identities within the working-class experience. Overall, "Gatherings" presents a collection of deeply personal, delicate, and powerful works.”

Gatherings will have a private view on 3 August, and be open by appointment at SET Woolwich, SEIS 6BU from the 4 - 17 August.

Gatherings is an exhibition of work by WCCD members:

With thanks to SET for their support for WCCD members through residencies at the studios and then allowing for the use of the exhibition space.
