Little People’s Palace at Spacex Gallery
In Summer 2014, Carousel artists worked with 3 staff and 6 children from Stoke Hill Infant School and Nursery, with six sessions taking place at Spacex Gallery, working in partnership with the Spacex education team, responding Matthew Sawyer’s exhibition; White Male, 36 Years Old, Average Height, No Pets, Out of Shape and Anxious, 17 May–12 July 2014. This was Mathew’s first solo show in a public gallery. We questioned ‘How do two visual artists collaborate to support preschool children’s creative development in the context of a contemporary art gallery. The project was delivered by Tamsin Pender, Carousel Visual artist and Catherine Cartwright, printmaker.
