close

In 2016 it was announced that Central House, the building that houses London Metropolitan’s Sir John Cass School of Art and Design, would close at the end of the academic year 2016/17. Central House Assembly has been conceived in reaction to this situation.

About

Proposed by Sara Rodrigues and Henry Mulhall, the project was formed as a collaborative residency operating under the Open Field program, run by Ben Cain. Rodrigues and Mulhall sent out an open call to current and former students, teachers and friends of The Cass asking for proposals to celebrate and interrogate the closing of Central House. Stipulating a set of parameters, they asked for proposals that reflected the current situation in which The Cass finds itself. The proposals were required to have an ephemeral and collaborative nature, so as to foster an inquisitive group practice rather than a retrospective exhibition. 

May has seen the residency space turned into an open studio, experimenting with methods of teaching, learning, and making, complimented by a series of public events and workshops. 

Participants include: Jonathan Whitehall, , Alex Edwards, Lucy Evetts, Karen Turner, Mine Norman, Maggie Learmonth, Jenny Nash, John Henry Newton, Alex Wealands, David Edward Price, Wouter Van der Hallen, Merlin Massara, Deej Fabyc, Sara Rodrigues and Henry Mulhall
