ActionSpace Artists at Autograph

POSTED: 22 October 2018

Thompson Hall, Andrew Omoding and Ian Wornast joined us for Thursday Late at the gallery, sharing and discussing their work.

Every Thursday*, we keep the galleries open late - until 9pm. Alongside Autograph's current exhibitions, we frequently invite artists and groups to join us in the Studio for events, pop-up displays and discussion.

It was a pleasure to have three artists from ActionSpace at our Thursday Late on 27 September. Thompson Hall displayed his striking paintings using colours, patterns and motifs drawn from London landmarks and his Ghanaian heritage – part of his search for home, identity and ancestry. Responding to Omar Victor Diop's exhibition Liberty / Diaspora, he gave an informal gallery talk.

Andrew Omoding demonstrated his participatory sculpture, and Ian Wornast featured his works inspired by transport connections and links throughout London. All three artists chatted with visitors throughout the evening over drinks, and had a great time.

Opening up our space for the exchange of ideas is an important part of Autograph's work. Want to know about future Thursday Late events? Join our newsletter.


*When we have an exhibition on, the galleries are closed for installation when we are between shows. Check the exhibitions section of our website to see what's on.
