Detours was an exhibition of AA2A (Artists’ Access to Art Colleges) artists from Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon (CCW) Colleges, collaboratively curated by four MA Curating students and held at Wimbledon Space as part of the CCW Public Programme, with a catalogue published by Camberwell Press.
The AA2A scheme represents a detour from each of the artists’ usual practices, in terms of location, materials and ideas, where even a slight shift from the norm can engender radical changes. The scheme provides mid-career artists with exposure to new environments, and offers access to alternative media and techniques, encouraging variety and diversity within their practices.
Detours was curated by: Grazyna Dobrzanska-Redrup, Courtney Griffiths, James Harper and Daisy McMullan
