UGLY DUCK “METAMORPHOSIS”
Curated by Ema E. Marinova
To celebrate we’re beginning 2019 by throwing our largest fair to date, pulling the threads and gathering the talent to fill to the brim three floors of atmospheric warehouse interiors at 47/49 Tanner Street. You’ll find offbeat examples from the fields of Craft and Illustration, each spanning across two of three floors, an expansive treasure trove to delve into. And for the creators out there, we’re a fourth space, The HUB, which will be filled each and every day with back to back workshops, screenings and talks. Creating a space to socialise, network, learn, absorb, make, test, learn, buy and sell.
THE OLD TRUMAN BREWERY
Nomads by nature 2018 was our September 2019 exhibiton at the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, which saw Cluster naturally drift from the fringe straight into the heart and soul of the East End. Landing smack bang in the middle of the iconic cultural hotbed that is Brick Lane and The Old Truman Brewery , an area equally known for its inked graffiti streets and creatives industries

Individual interpretations of urbanism, poster art and pop culture was presented at the exhibition. Some of our artists are challenging perceptions of the psyche, the human body and popular culture.
BELOW ONE FIFTEEN

Individual interpretations of love, death, and nature were explored against common themes such as sexuality, the human psyche and spirituality. Some of our designers challenged perceptions of myth and lore, of popular culture and subsequent societal values.
We brought you painted canvases, digitised prints, and hand drawn motifs; the very best examples of assorted creative talent. Exclusive to this edition of Cluster was the introduction of animators who will be projecting short, humorous gifs and conceptual short films.
