THAT – Half
by the Tower Hamlets Artist Teachers Network
26 April – 7 July 2017
THAT – Half offers a dynamic snapshot of some of the best contemporary practice from 19 artist teachers all of whom work as art teachers across the schools of Tower Hamlets.
Inspired by a collective passion to create a dialogue about their practice, the artists offer a mixed of style and mediums including etchings, observational drawings, photography, digital prints, water-colour and mixed medium collage. Collectively, they offer an immediate vibrancy that, regardless of the artistic medium, make you think about contemporary scenes and situations.
THAT – Half is a unique and rare moment to share the excitement of the Tower Hamlets Artist Teachers Network’s collective artistic talent.
Formed in 2013, THAT is an artist collective that encourages and supports artist teachers, working specifically in the Borough of Tower Hamlets, to revisit their art practice and develop artwork linked to a chosen area of research. Their aim is to exhibit and share good practice, investing time and effort to develop their own art practice to positively reach out and inspire young artists in their individual school communities.
All of artwork featured in the exhibition is available to purchase.
