29th June 2007 — 15th July 2007

Every year the Curating contemporary Art students at the Royal College of Art have a dry run for their final show in the form of the low-key Monique Beudert Fund project. The Fund allows students from the CCA and their counterparts at the Bard Curatorial School in New York to produce projects which focus on the exchange of ideas between Europe and the Americas, encouraging students from the RCA to study and present contemporary work by artists from the other side of the Atlantic.

This year's project sees Brazilian sound art collective, Chelpa Ferro, being commissioned to produce their first performance in the UK. Chelpa Ferro, we are promised, 'fuse art and music, the traditional and the high-tech, the local and the global'. For one night only they will present their sound sampling - which uses everyday materials, found objects from London homes, and recordings from the streets of Rio de Janerio as well as musical instruments - in the SPACE Courtyard (also to be broadcast on Resonance FM on Friday 29 June, 7 - 8 pm). In the accompanying exhibition at Mezkalito Gallery, there will be an installation which combines objects, sounds, images and a site-specific installation.
