Jenny Nolan and Daniel Raphael at The Room 2011
Masha Gurina and Cesar Velasquez at The Room 2011
Room creates a new ambiance. By taking health activities out
of the gym, by taking cultural activities out of the gallery, the
cultural gets located within the recreational. Offering fitness
and art, The Room encourages both stimulation and provocation.
The catalyst for this co-existence is the tango, a dance which,
on the one hand, can be a demonstration of artistry by professionals,
and on the other, can be a warm social gathering for those who are
simply enthusiastic about their dancing. The
Room provides North London with the crucible for an arts think-tank,
a genuinely ground-breaking exercise in bringing non-arts professionals
into contact with artists from a variety of disciplines.
