SWARM

In 2019, Alke co-curated SWARM: Artists respond to the pollinator crisis, an exhibition  currently at Walthamstow's Vestry House Museum.  In SWARM,  artists Anna Alcock, Hannah Ford, Miyuki Kasahara, Alke Schmidt and Sandie Sutton respond to this crisis with new work that draws on the latest research into the causes of the alarming decline of pollinators. Featuring painting, printmaking, textiles, sculpture and installation, the exhibition is both a call to arms and a celebration of these wondrous and hard-working insects that are so vital to our food security. This gallery shows Alke's work made for this exhibition, which will run until 26 January 2020.
