WITHOUT BOATS, DREAMS DRY UP

February 2012

Without Boats, Dreams Dry Up exhibits artwork by 20 emerging artists and designers from Chelsea, Camberwell and Wimbledon Colleges of Art (CCW). The exhibition represents their creative response to the series of urban expeditions made down the Thames in October 2011.

The title of the exhibition is taken from Michel Foucault’s 1967 lecture ‘Des Espace Autres’ (Of Other Spaces). Foucault discusses the idea of a heterotopia or ‘other place’ – a term that parallels the role of Cape Farewell and SHORTCOURSE/UK as a sort of surrogate art school, floating between cities and academies.
