Into the Fold is an ongoing project that questions the ideology of the studio and gallery space, materialising in the form of an exhibition and publication through a temporary and spontaneous community of practice.
This year Into the Fold brings together a diverse range of emerging and established creative practitioners and thinkers from the world of art and design. These practitioners have worked and developed projects in collaboration with Camberwell Press in the past. The first three weeks of the project consisted of a series of lectures, workshops and events—open to all—to generate material and formulate an exhibition. This series of activities explored and questioned ideas around the terms re-work, re-visit and re-imagine. The participants re-enacted a previously performed event and have re-contextualised it for this year's Into the Fold. The results of this series of events are exhibited in a setting specifically created by artists Lea Collet & Marios Stamatis for the upper floor of Camberwell Space Projects and will become the content for a response in the form of a publication.
The first Into the Fold project took place in 2012 and featured a diverse range of emerging and established creative practitioners including: Philip Li, Department 21, Brave New Alps, Phil Baines, Sam Winston, That New Design Smell, Hato Press, Mr Smith, Super/Collider, ICO Design, Europa, Rick Poynor, Fraser Muggeridge, Teal Triggs, A Practice For Everyday Life, Carmody Groarke and Glenn Adamson. The theme of the first Into the Fold was to question what the 'ideal studio' was or could be, through a series of events and a publication.
The second instalment of Into the Fold began with ten days of events that explored five themes: Ideology, Place, Play, Language and Meta and featured practitioners including: Open School East, Morgan Quaintance, Europa, Hendrik Schneider, Simon Burbidge, Mr Smith, Crowd Talks, Peter Nencini, Natalie Kay-Thatcher & Harriet Cory-Wright, Lea Collet & Marios Stamatis, A Practice For Everyday Life, Carmody Groarke, Nicolas Feldmeyer, James Langdon, Edgar–Walker, The Plant Journal, The Gourmand, It’s Nice That, Emily King and Alfonso Borragan. The results of these activities became the exhibition, an attempt to propose what collaboration, education, discussion, participation and making could be.
