Invisible Numbers is a response to 2017 E17 Art Trail theme: STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) - an ongoing debate to put Art back on the agenda of the National Curriculum alongside the STEM subjects - and our exhibitors explored and celebrated the cross-disciplinary aspect of these subjects. The E17 Art Trail is a biennial arts festival that takes place in Walthamstow, London E17 and showcases over 7,000 artists during the 2 week period. This year, the festival took place from 3 June - 18 June, and Invisible Numbers exhibited at Winns Gallery, a major E17 Art Trail hub in the grounds of Lloyd Park and the William Morris Gallery, from 9 June - 18 June.
Invisible Numbers, the exhibition, showcased 6 artists, a design studio and 1 historian, each responding to the theme of STEAM and what it means to them. This includes the story of an unknown local computer engineer from E17; artworks illustrating the mathematical in light, jewellery and mask-making; paintings that celebrate the skills of 19th century rope-spinners; and fibre art that comments upon the political landscape of a divided nation. Invisible Numbers was curated and organised by exhibitor, Hannah Ford. Find out about each artist's work on the Exhibitors page.
Invisible Numbers could not have happened without the E17 Art Trail and the generous support of The Stow Brothers
