Derived from Greek routes, Uni Son, simply means One Voice. To speak, sing, shout, scream, or act to one concerted affect. Beyond the binding of individuals it intends purpose and proactivity. Cause and effect, action and result. It’s no small coincidence that UNISION announces the opening of the Cluster Art Fair’s new programme of exhibitions, uniting artists under common banners. Making militant the collective energies of artists and artworks.
Building upon the success of the Cluster Illustration Fair, which saw 800 people attend the opening and a further 1500 across the following 4 days, the UNISION programme will work with artists who’ve previously exhibited with Cluster, providing new opportunities and contexts for them to more closely collaborate. The first exhibition will run from the 1st - 11th August at Unit 5 Gallery between Hoxton and Cambridge Heath overground stations, bringing an intensive mix of art to one of the more reactive areas of East London.
The curatorial programme will continue with further exhibitions throughout the year, working on a strictly no-entry fee basis and an ethos of bringing together creatives to generate new united voices.

CLUSTER is a 5 day, fully-curated reimagining of the traditional fair. The fair itself will take place over 5 days in May. We have a beautiful 3 storey warehouse building just off London Bridge, accommodating illustration and crafts.
The opening night on May 1 will be invite only, and you are welcome to invite your friends and family, as well as everyone else you think might enjoy the event.
The fair will be open to the public between May 2 - 5 and entry will be free. During the 4 days of the event we will be running series of workshops, talks, events and fittings.
Cluster Craft presents Light, Colour, Abstraction, a contemporary craft exhibition highlighting experimental material application through abstract sculptures and forms. Showcasing works from emerging and established artists, the theme of light, colour and abstraction creates a unified approach between the work and the space. Cluster Craft is a celebration of contemporary craft, the workmanship of materials, and the beauty of concept driven work.
Held at The Old Truman Brewery, Cluster Craft is set within the cultural hub of the East End, a prime location for work of an art and design background. In its third year running, Cluster holds its largest craft exhibition to date focusing on themes of light, colour and abstraction. Participating in Cluster provides artists exhibiting with the experience of a shared collaborative journey and membership of a joint support network. Monthly gatherings, career support, talks, and workshops provide an additional element of creative guidance as part of Cluster.
Established and emerging artists collectively exhibited in one space produces an environment of varied qualities and attributes within the spectrum of craft. Invited guest exhibitors, Laura McKinley and PND Neon exhibit their current collection of work on the theme of light and colour. RCA graduate Laura McKinley presents from her MA project ‘Childlike Abandon’ referencing children's toys establishing a playful quality through the medium of glass. PND Neon’s lighting structures in neon tube provide an atmospheric environment through a minimal application of materials; this combination of neon and concrete forms an interesting dialogue between architecture and atmosphere.
Clusters exhibition Light, Colour, Abstraction hones in on the contemporary craft scene from various mediums, concepts, and applications unified through a common theme. With bold and striking visuals, it is a must see exhibition of sculpture, ceramics, jewellery, glass, and mixed media certainly one to brighten up your day with colour and light.
