Uncertain States

Fiona Yaron Field, a co-founder of Uncertain States talks about its growth and developmentsince its inception in 2010 and how this artist led project has unashamedly embraced the spirit of cooperation, collaboration and partnership over its seven year tenure. Fiona’s talk will also focus on Elsewhere - the current exhibition by Uncertain States at Safehouse 1, which has been specially curated for Peckham 24. The starting point for Elsewhereis the exhibition space itself - The Safehouse - a concept that resonates with many current social concerns as well as a prevailing psychological desire for a sanctuary in an ever increasingly bewildering world.

True Art, Fake News - Alison Jackson in conversation with Lewis Bush

Alison Jackson explores the cult of celebrity through meticulously staged photographs of celebrity doppelgangers. From the Royal Family to First Family, Jackson’s artworks lift the lid to show how the rich and powerful might behave once they are safely sequestered behind closed doors.

To coincide with the display of her Donald Trump inspired photographs as part of It’s Gonna Be Great at Copeland Gallery, Jackson will be in conversation with curator, writer and photographer Lewis Bush to discuss staged photography, the representation of the powerful, and the role of art in the era of Fake news.
