A little more on what Incubator is? Go on then…

This week I headed down to meet the team behind Incubator 22, the second edition of the Incubator project that launched last year.

Between quintessential April rain showers, a burst of sunshine welcomed me as I wandered down Chiltern Street to find Angelica and Clara setting up for the first solo show of the new series.

The series consists of six weeks, each week with a different emerging artist displaying their first ever solo show.

‘It’s rare for emerging artists to have their work in a cohesive show, you’re usually pretty established by then’ explains Clara Galperin, one of the show’s directors ‘and that’s the beauty behind the idea’.

The creation of Angelica Jopling, the series promises a fresh new show each week from now until the beginning of June.

‘Each one feels very different, and aims to show the diversity of work that’s being made right now’ says Angelica.

Last time we had a mixture of painters, sculptors, and sound artists. This time we are leaning more towards painting but there are some etchings and photography too.’ It all kicks off with Mary Stephenson, who will be exhibiting her first solo show ‘Suddener Than We Fancy’ until the 1st May. You can check out our tour around her show.

The space really works for the idea. A small gallery opposite Chiltern Firehouse, surrounded by red brick, giving the space a sense of ‘lived in’ intimacy, but with enough room to let the art speak.

If you’ve got any spare time over the next six weeks it’s the perfect opportunity to see something new and exciting plus you’ll be supporting emerging artists and young talent.

Open every week Thursdays-Sundays 12pm-7pm. As part of the Loah Crew feel free to head down on Wednesday evenings 5.30pm-7.30pm to the private view and toast the new artist with your favourite low alc brew.✌️
