AboutMillington | Marriott is an artist led initiative based in Peckham, London.
Millington | Marriott this summer will be running an off-site project in Stratford, London from the 27th July 2012. We have acquired a warehouse space, âE2012' that is situated on the doorstep of the Olympic Stadium (see map below). As part of the project we will be transforming the warehouse into three distinct sections. The ground floor of the warehouse will host a fine art exhibition compromising of selected cutting edge London based Galleries that will select and exhibit one work from one artist. The mezzanine level will function as a bar and events area. The bar and all the furniture will be bespoke pieces from artists, designers, and architects from the UK and international institutes such as the Designskolen Kolding, Denmark. The reception room will be transformed into an alternative Olympic shop that will contain custom designed souvenirs from artists across London, limited edition prints, catalogues from the
participating galleries, artist books, and limited edition art works to coincide with the exhibition.
We are inviting young designers to submit works of functional tables, chairs and lighting to be used for the duration of the project in the bar area, located on the mezzanine level. Selected works will the available for sale through the gallery, and advertised in our catalogue and on our website.
Selected designers will receive a cut of the sales on top of huge publicity received from being involved with an event of this kind. Due to the nature of this event, its location and timing, this it a perfect opportunity for young designers to get their work seen and to establish themselves in the world of design.
