Two new sculptures for Catford The Creative Lewisham Agency is proud to announce the unveiling of two new sculptures on Rushey Green in Catford. The first piece, Waterline created by Oliver Barratt, will be sited outside Eros House on the corner of Rushey Green and Brownhill Road. The piece, inspired by a time when a river ran through Rushey Green, was jointly commissioned by Desiman Ltd, who own Eros House, and the Creative Lewisham Agency. Oliver Barratt is most notable for creating the memorial at Mount Everest's base camp, which pays tribute to those lost on the mountain. The second piece is ‘Chariot’ by Oleg Prokofiev, son of the famous composer Serge Prokofiev. Donated by the Prokofiev family who are Lewisham residents, the sculpture will be placed outside La Ciabatta, next to Ringstead Road The Mayor of Lewisham will be unveiling both of the steel sculptures at 4pm on Friday July 21. Show Me The Monet 6-show series of broadcasts on Resonance FM Starting Thursday 13 July, 2-3pm Show Me The Monet is a new 6 part series on Resonance FM exploring the relationship between art and economy. Host Russell Martin, with invited guests, will explore ways in which contemporary arts practice responds, interacts, supports and rebels against the symbolic economy. Conversations with artists, commissioners, curators, theorists and writers will highlight working practices that develop experimental methodologies through commodity and market exchange. The final programme will revisit previous dialogues in the series and examine emergent themes. Light refreshments will be supplied by Joanna Callaghan via sonic interventions, aural musings on artenomics and some citizen reporting.
