The Democratic Dish – Upcoming Events

The Democratic Dish: Mintons Secessionist Ware, the Chelsea Space exhibition which features a small number of items from the Minton Archive (amongst a dazzling array of Secessionist ware!), continues until Friday 26th October. There are also a number of events planned during these last few weeks – read on to find out more…

On Thursday 18th October Chelsea Space is hosting an afternoon of talks and a panel discussion to coincide with the exhibition – to find out more about Collecting, Archiving, Making, and the Place of Ceramics in Art and Society Today, including how to book your place at this free event, visit the dedicated event page.

Submissions to an ongoing transfer project, where visitors are invited to complete a template (either physical or digital) inspired by the work on display, close on Friday 19th October. To get involved visit Chelsea Space or download the template and post, e-mail or hand your design in to the gallery before the deadline. On Friday 26th October the judges’ selection will be announced at a special event and these four designs will be turned into transfers and workshopped onto large ceramic chargers.

For all the details on the project, the announcement event, who will be judging the transfers (there’s a not-so-subtle hint in the image above!), and a peak at submitted artworks check out the project’s page on the Chelsea Space site.
