19 September, ARTIST CRIT with Paloma Tendero

Not sure what medium to experiment with next? Want to fine tune how you talk about your work?

Kicking off the new addition to our events programme, Sarabande alumni Paloma Tendero and Shirin Fathi will host our first ever Artist Crit group.

We are welcoming artists far and wide, of all experience levels and disciplines, to come and speak to your peers about your work.

This will be an informal opportunity for you to pick the brains of your fellow creatives, whether it be questions about representation, concepts, or just a friendly natter with someone who just gets it, and of course most importantly, a chance to practice speaking and presenting your work.

Each artist will have ~10 minutes to present and receive feedback for their piece of work, so prepare your questions for the group to get the most out of your time!

Join us in our first artist crit for an afternoon cuppa and a chat about your work.




About Sarabande Foundation

Sarabande was set up by the late designer, Lee Alexander McQueen, who left the majority of his estate to support creative and visionary talent. In addition to providing scholarships and studio space for artists, Sarabande produces a number of events, from the practical to the inspirational.

Sarabande operates from a listed Stable Block conversion in Haggerston, where 15 studios form a creative community with designers and artists from multiple disciplines. Immersed in the hub of East London’s rich creative spirit, Sarabande exudes all that encompasses the creative sphere. The building is home to a plethora of artisans reflecting the multifarious span of Lee’s talent and the variety of craftspeople he worked with his own collections. Amongst others, our tactile artists include sculptors, fashion designers, jewellers, textile designers, painters, performance artists, silversmiths, costume designers, ceramicists, and dancers. Alongside these, Sarabande also houses filmmakers, animators, photographers, digital designers, and visual artists.
