Co-run by Jordan McKenzie and students from Central Saint Martins
College of Art, LUVA asks critical questions about the contexts that contemporary art
exists within, its relationship to the geographical/economic/social and cultural space
(the estate) that it occupies and how cultural institutions can have meaningful
dialogues with both local and non-local audiences. Being located in one of the poorer bourghs in the UK, Tower Hamlets, LUVA also acts as a food bank collection point, providing material support to the community that it is situated within.
LUVA's first exhibition will be showing Emma Talbot's work.
Emma Talbot explores a personal experience of being alive in the contemporary world, and the way memories and future projections are perceived in ‘the mind’s eye’.
Emma Talbot is an artist based in London and Senior Tutor at the RCA.
