The cultivated intent for 2018 then, as much about the intent of the artists as it about the art they make…


Now we could write one of those self-congratulating look backs over the year that’s about to end, it was a rather good one what with the nomadic adventure in places like Dalston, along the Hackney Road, in Walthamstow, Folkestone, down by the Thames, over in Hackney Wick, that rather successful takeover of Coate, the Fragile show, the Interact show and al lthat it stood for, the #43ArtDrop pieces, the circles, the ponies, the many artists who passed through, who performed, hung paintings, installed trees, sprayed doors, the Art Car Boot Fairs that are always exciting things to be part of, the Red, Black and Blue experiments, the Accidental Marks Made While Making Art, that Organ thing and the rest of it.  Yes, we could write one of those end of year blogs about all that happened in a busy 2017, truth is we’d rather just say thanks to all who got involved in all the cultivation, who took part, came along, supported the events, wrote about them. share photos, bought our art, bought other people’s art at our shows, took the drops off the streets, we could write about all of that, instead we’ll just say a big big thanks to everyone and get on with looking forward with intent to the next things…


The intent for 2018 is to start where we left off in 2017 with a show Called Intent, a show in two parts, a show with two openings, a show in two places, one in a basement in Dalston, the other wherever you happen to be when you choose to view it. The intent is from us, the intent is from the artists taking part in both parts of Intent,

Expect more here about the artists taking part in Intent in the next few days. Some of the artists you’ll know already, some will be new to you, some have shown with us before, some are making their Cultivate debuts. As always Cultivate is about us artists coming together and making it happen on our terms. We are very picky about the art we show, it is as much about the intent of the artists as the it is about the art they make, the call for both parts on Intent is still open, be quick though, all about getting involved…

A big thanks for all the support in 2017, on with the intent for 2018…  (sw)
