Foundation & Trust, founded in 2011 by Paul Macgee, Helen Turner and Brendan Michal Heshka, is a fluid, rolling Artist’s Collective in which artists and professionals from multiple disciplines work together to produce events, performances, sound and text based works.
Their latest collective project sees the opening of a new gallery located in the Balfron Tower. Designed by Ernő Goldfinger in 1963 as part of the high-rise answer to the post- war housing crisis, the building is now Grade II listed and houses the collective’s studio and gallery.
As with all Foundation & Trust projects the gallery is a collaboration between the members of the collective, who have various areas of expertise. Its 26 week programme reflects the collective’s commitment to continuing to develop dialogues between different creative practitioners, theorists, and academics in a variety of fields.
Artists exhibiting include:
Foundation & Trust
HellFun (Josefin Arnell & Max Goran)
Foundation & Trust tailored this programme in order to collaborate with creative practitioners with whom they have a strong affinity. The series of 26 one-week long shows will explore ideas of collaboration, friendship, multi-disciplinary discourses and hospitality, elements that are at the core of all Foundation & Trust projects.
The programme sees exhibitions by a wide variety of artists, ranging from students who have taken part in F&T workshops to well established, international and prize winning artists, allowing the collective - and gallery - to be liberated from the typical constraints of contemporary gallery trends, traditions and expectations.
