Client: Arts Council, England
Brief: Sunday School was an independent art project commissioned and supported by the Arts Council England. DAM PROJECTS is a curatorial collective founded by Daniella Rose King, Amanprit Sandhu and Morgan Quaintance. Inclusive and anti-elitist, the collective use temporary exhibitions and events to support emerging, underexposed and unorthodox artists, art scenes, discourses and debates. In collaboration with DAM PROJECTS and their first project Sunday School, a 12 one-day exhibition series featuring 6 solo shows from recent UK art school graduates and 6 exhibitions looking at emerging international art scenes, Anomalous Visuals produced a set of documentaries titled Letter From… that focused on a selection of featured cities and the creatives that are fuelling them.
Response: Using simple camera set up’s and interviews with artists directly prevalent to the featured cities, Anomalous Visuals filmed in New Orleans-America, Derry-Ireland and Cape Town-South Africa. Each city had its own challenges to overcome in terms of filming and developing an aesthetic, working with locals in the area and getting artists to discuss there work in context to the project. Alongside the documentary production, Anomalous Space was used by DAM PROJECTS for the year long Sunday School series.
Results: The documentaries and one day events were well received within the London art scene with the films used as additional promotion for the project and curators from DAM Projects to secure further art funding.
