TRACE ELEMENTS | 1971. Artists: Hermione Allsopp, Fabio Almeida, Sasha Bowles, Rosalind Davis & Justin Hibbs, Richard Perry, Lex Shute, Lisa Traxler, Andrea V. Wright.


THE FACTORY PROJECT produced by THORPSTAVRI is a monumental ‘festival of curation’ will take place in a North Woolwich warehouse during Frieze Week, when 10 UK based curators/curatorial groups will be invited to present exhibitions of sculpture, painting, drawing, video, performance and installation from emerging and mid-career artists. 

Transforming an old Tate & Lyle Factory in the Thameside Industrial Estate, The Factory Project is an independent museum-scale display, showcasing work from over 80 artists. Organisers and co-curators Eric Thorp and Nicholas Stavri (Thorp Stavri) are presenting talks, workshops and tours to engage the local community with both the art and the building’s industrial past, and hope to connect with a wider audience than just regular gallery goers. 

TRACE ELEMENTS | 1971 is a title that references this incredible building’s links back to the industrial era whilst also acknowledging the cumulative impact of subsequent phases of its history. Themes that bring these artists’ practices together are transformation and experience. Their works respond directly to buildings or contexts, scraping back layers of history, materiality or indeed reality, to create new or alternate spaces, objects and environments.
