Having A Coke With You
The event was a result of an exhibition-making workshop I facilitated with 14 artists from first-year MA Fine Art at Chelsea and Stage 2 BA Fine Art at CSM. The artists have collectively responded to the notion of the archive, time and collecting. The title of the show is taken from Frank O’Hara’s poem of the same name, Having A Coke With You. O’Hara’s poetry reflected on ideas of being present, the moment and vulnerability.
