Duo plan to provide site-responsive works and immersive experiences
Yinka Danmole and Tadeo Lopez-Sendon
Chiswick House have announced the appointed of Yinka Danmole and Tadeo Lopez-Sendon as curator-producers for its 2022 artistic programme.
They are already developing a series of 'happenings' for April to October on the theme of built and natural environments and wellbeing.
Cultural producer and founder of Studio Danmole, Yinka Danmole and creative producer and co-founder of Mutant Promise, Tadeo Lopez-Sendon have picked up the mantle from 2021 producer Mariam Zulfiqar who curated Chiswick House’s inaugural artistic programme Bring Into Being.
The pair previously co-produced One-Fifth of the Earth’s Surface, a digital artwork by artists Maxwell Mutanda and Hakeem Adam, an Abandon Normal Devices and York Mediale co-commission using British Library and the National Maritime Museum archives.
Yinka and Tadeo will blend their backgrounds and interests to curate a series of ‘happenings’ at Chiswick House, between April–October 2022, on the theme of built and natural environments and wellbeing.
Director of Chiswick House & Gardens, Xanthe Arvanitakis, said: “I am delighted Yinka and Tadeo are joining us to curate our 2022 programme – they will bring fresh thinking and energy building on the success of last year’s programme. Which will continue to draw on stories from the past, our physical place and encourage us all to look at Chiswick House & Gardens with fresh eyes.”
Yinka said: “It’s so exciting to be invited to work with the team at Chiswick House & Gardens during this bold new phase. Tadeo and I were absolutely blown away at the opportunity to co-create and shape the 2022 programme. Through our work in the coming year, we aim to devise a programme of lively exchanges, site-responsive works and immersive experiences.”
Tadeo said: “Chiswick House & Gardens’ ability to inspire and reinvent cultural activities in the public space presents fertile ground to build on and experiment with new models of audience participation, through sound, music, space and movement. I am thrilled to be collaborating with Yinka once again, connecting communities and offering a much-needed healing mindscape to the urban dweller.”
Yinka and Tadeo’s artistic programme will be announced in early 2022, ahead of the re-opening of Chiswick House on 1 April.
