Taking the Women’s Suffrage movement as a point of departure, Camden VOX has commissioned four artists to produce a series of posters that explore ideas of equality, place, power and identity.

December 2018 - January 2019: Ingrid Pollard
Over the next 17 years the urban fabric of Camden, arguably London’s most bustling and diverse of boroughs, will be reshaped dramatically to make way for the HS2 train line. The major construction works planned will require hundreds of residents to be rehoused. Camden Council invited artist and anthropologist Liz Hingley to develop a project with, about and for those who are being affected.
Curated by The Wiener Library in Russell Square, this exhibition at the Swiss Cottage Library explores aspects of resistance against Nazism and various manifestations of this resistance, from instances of organised rebellion, to examples of anti-Nazi jokes.
Join in artist-led workshops revealing a process driven way of working not typically associated with female artists of the time.
To profile the work of women artists entering into this year’s Open Open, women artists will share their practice and what it means to exhibit in the Open Open at this stage of their artistic development.
Through a series of conversations and workshops alongside 'Citizen', an exhibition by Tash Kahn and Jon Ros, Quiet Down There will explore visibility, voice and power.
Swiss Cottage Gallery proudly presents Katarina Hruskova, who will be making a site specific sound installation for Swiss Cottage Gallery. Hruskova is asking the following questions: What does it mean to be contained by a body? Can voice and language be a means of breaking, extending and redefining its borders? Where is the source of a voice and what determines its reach? How can its vibrations influence and transform objects, bodies and circumstances in its vicinity?
Women Constructed presents 9 female artists from the Camden Collection, all of whom look at line, abstraction, grids and construction as central themes in their work. Curated by Charlie Levine.


The 2018 Open Open calls all artists, professional and amateur, from anywhere and any age, to bring along a piece of their artwork for exhibition. Recurring each year at Swiss Cottage Gallery, the Open Open provides a great opportunity for artists, professional and other, to show their work in a “salon style” exhibition.
