Last week we were joined by Bella Bakere, a student from ISCA, for a week’s work experience. She has been incredibly helpful in the run up to Michael Samuel’s exhibition and we thought we’d share what she’s been up to.
So what sort of things have you been up to here this week?
Well, I’ve mainly been helping Kathy (Learning Programmer) out with some of the learning projects and preparation for the upcoming learning events – this even included a bit of painting! As well as spending some time researching Michael Samuels and interviewing him about his exhibition.
How did you find talking to Michael Samuels about his upcoming exhibition here?
It was a really great opportunity talking to Michael in depth about his work. I understand how rare it is to be able to talk to an artist firsthand about their work. Also, the interview with Michael will be really helpful for my art GCSE, I’m looking forward to doing a really in depth research page on him.
What have you most enjoyed about working here at Spacex?
I’ve really enjoyed the wide range of activities and just getting an insight into what goes on each day. It’s amazing how much you don’t see that goes on here. Oh and of course the staff are really friendly and have made me feel very welcome!
Thanks Bella! It’s been a real pleasure having you here
If you’d like to see what all the fuss is about, join us on Saturday 28 July from 3pm for Michael Samuels This Was Tomorrow Exhibition Opening and artist talk.
