Year two Fine Art students from UCA Farnham are having their end of year show ‘NO FIT STATE’ at the Asylum Space in Peckham. Exhibition is open Wednesday 8, Thursday 9 and Friday 10 May 11am – 5pm. There will be a performance night and closing event Friday 10 May 5pm – 7.30pm. 
 
Asylum is an artist lead organisation and is directed by artists Jo Dennis and Dido Hallett. Sited in Caroline Gardens Chapel, in Peckham, it forms the heart of London’s largest complex of almshouses originally known as the Licensed Victuallers’ Benevolent Institution Asylum. However, despite being called an “asylum”, the grade-II-listed site was not a home for lunatics. Instead, the word was used in its older sense of “sanctuary” and it was in fact an old folks’ home for retired pub landlords (or “decayed members of the trade” as they were known at the time). Year Two Fine Art will be holding an intervention and exhibition within the space – responding to its unique architecture and history and also showcasing current work in progress.
 
The project has been made possible by funds raised through the ‘Stretched’ exhibition @ucastretched and silent auction sponsored by Winsor & Newton held at UCA Farnham back in Oct/Nov 2018. Many thanks for the sponsors and also to the many artists who generously contributed work to the auction. ‘No Fit State’ is also kindly supported by KOSM @the_kosm_, A Lifestyle Brand.
