It’s a new year and we needed a window display to match! The display was designed by Catherine Chinatree and is inspired by resolutions.
The display celebrates Artquest’s 20th anniversairy. Artquest was formed in 2001. They support professional visual artists to make work, sell work, find work and network. They have commissioned multidisciplinary visual artist and Wimbledon College of Arts alumna, Catherine Chinatree to create Resolutions, a window installation at not just a shop.
Resolutions is inspired by the new years’ resolve, anticipation and memories we experience when looking both back and forward at the start of the year. It is a time to decide to entrench new habits, remember what we have gained and lost, to do or not do something different. As we move into 2022, we all ‘take the plunge’ and immerse ourselves, in whatever way that may be.
Artquest exists to make access to the arts more equitable for visual artists from all backgrounds. Artquest is a public programme of University of the Arts London (UAL) funded by Arts Council England for 20 years. They support professional visual artists with the advice, information, campaigns, and resources they need to thrive at all stages in their career.
Our programmes help develop strong insights into how artists work so we understand where they earn money, their ambitions and motivations, and the critical creative attributes they use in other jobs. We want to be the leading providers of intelligence about visual artists, bringing together insight from our programme with individual artists to work strategically with policymakers, HEIs and business.Artquest
Artquest and not just a shop are part of UAL’s Careers & Employability department, which helps UAL students and alumni to make a living doing what they love.
Our physical shop remains closed but you can still pick up items from High Holborn using our click and collect service and see the display in-person. If you would like to purchase the print version of the window installation, please click here.
