Sep 19 - Oct 26, 2018
This exhibition of chargers, toilet ware, vases, pedestals, flower holders, candlesticks, jardinières, a cheese stand, plates and other utilitarian wares, alongside archival material from the Minton Archive, will demonstrate the innovative approach to colour that Léon Solon contributed to the Secessionist range, combined with John Wadsworth’s designs of often radical abstractions from plant forms. The exhibition will also examine Wadsworth's advocacy for the decorative arts, highlighting both Solon and Wadsworth’s contribution to British design between 1900-1915.

RASHEED ARAEEN, PETER FILLINGHAM AND CHELSEA SPACE
Nov 14 - Dec 14, 2018
Chelsea Space is delighted to present new sculpture by Rasheed Araeen (b.1935) and Peter Fillingham (b. 1964), the first time that these two artists have shown their work together.
 
The placement of works in relation to each other and to the architecture of Chelsea Space is modernist and formalist in approach. Rather than presenting a context or history that overshadows the artwork itself, Chelsea Space’s intention is to offer the opportunity for Araeen and Fillingham to situate their work and allow it to have what Araeen describes as “the dignity of objecthood”.
