Invisible Numbers is an art collective co-founded by Rebecca Booker and Hannah Ford with Joana Niemeyer of graphic design company, Studio April; Kirstin Sibley, historian and researcher; Eve Mulholland of Odette Jewellery; Haberdashery Design; Denise Ford, painter and print-maker, and; Amber Cowan, writer and editor.
In June 2017, Invisible Numbers held their first exhibition at Winns Gallery, London E17, responding to the E17 Art Trail 2017 theme: STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) - an ongoing debate to put Art back on the agenda of the National Curriculum. The artists explored and celebrated the cross-disciplinary aspects of these subjects in their work.
1b Window Gallery
Invisible Numbers launched 1B Window Gallery in early 2019 - a new community led initiative - working with St James Big Local community action group and Waltham Forest Council's Regeneration Team, to create a gallery in the disused former shopfront of a sub-station at 1B Coppermill Lane.
As a gallery, it provides a destination and point of interest to the gateway to the Walthamstow Wetlands. Invisible Numbers are curating a programme for 2019 to include local artists from the area and guest curatorial invitations to widen the reach and accessibility to local and up-and-coming artists. Artwork in the gallery can be viewed every day through the windows with the aim to improve the well-being of visitors and passers-by.
To celebrate the launch of 1B Window Gallery, co-founder Rebecca Booker aka DJ TBX, launched IN FM Radio podcast. The connects to a wider audience and brings our guest artists to the table with interviews and stories about their favourite music on Heron Island Discs! Hear more here.
