A visit to Chelsea College of Arts, London

In the spirit of cross-boundary and cross-cultural dialogue that embodies Connect:, a group of the artists from ASP Katowice [Poland] came to visit their London counterparts, to further their works-in-progress and make new connections. On 7 December 2017, the artists of Connect: gather at Chelsea College of Arts to present their projects in a public talk and tour the College.

Introducing Connect:

And each of the 12 artist groups presents their individual “Connections”…

Before the public talk, Louise (of the DELM group) takes us around on a tour of Chelsea College of Arts, including MA studios and Chelsea Space…

and gives us a brief history of the site, which including Tate Britain next door, used to be Millbank Prison (1860 – 1890). Then the site was taken over by the Royal Army as their main teaching hospital (1905 – 1970s), before becoming in 2005 the existing campus for the Chelsea College of Arts.

Of course, no tour of Chelsea College of Arts would be complete without a visit to our local pub, the Morpeth Arms…
