Frankfurt Staedelschule Dancing Class present new work as a response to an invitation from students of Goldsmiths and hosted by Hold & Freight, London. This is the second part of a two-part exhibition, the first part was presented in Frankfurt earlier this year.

Private View: Friday 10th October 2008, 6 – 9 pm at Hold & Freight

Students of Goldsmiths and the Frankfurt Staedelschule Dancing Class were among the many students and institutions that participated in AGORA 2007, an international transdisciplinary workshop about performance and sculpture. AGORA is a project offering young artists an opportunity to engage in a concentrated trans-disciplinary exchange away from the day-to-day pressures of academic life. What came out of this meeting was an active intellectual exchange between the students of Goldsmiths and the Frankfurt Staedelschule Dancing Class.

In April 2008 Goldsmiths students were invited to Frankfurt in order to develop a common exhibition project in two parts. The first was an exhibition of the Goldsmiths students in Atelier Frankfurt, “April is the Creulest Month” (April – June 2008) an exhibition of work by David Brazier, Sam Curtis, Sara Fernandes, Kristen Lovelock, Eriko Nakamura, Ilona Sagar, Charlie Tweed, Rodrigo Valero Puertas.

The second part is presented in Hold & Freight, London in October 2008 where the Frankfurt Staedeschule Dancing Class, invited by the Goldsmiths students, present their work in London. This second part of the self-run, self-curated show, aims to extend networks and is the continuation of an ongoing dialogue between the two schools, providing a dynamic exploration of the complexities of exchange.

Exhibition runs from 10th October 2008 – 19th October 2008
Opening Times: Thursday – Sunday 12 – 6pm
