Ronan Mckenzie’s Home comes to Gucci Circolo in London’s Shoreditch
Gucci Circolo Shoreditch in London is a multidisciplinary space from which to discover Gucci’s special collections and projects, including the group exhibition ‘Collective Processes’, by Home by Ronan Mckenzie
Gucci’s Circolo – a temporary space in Shoreditch east London has announced, the final phase of its pop-up project. Situated in a building originally designed by Sir David Adjaye on Shoreditch’s Chance Street, this multidisciplinary location offers the chance to experience the house’s collection, events and collaborators in chic surroundings originally designed as a private home and studio for artists.
Last month, Gucci Circolo played host to the boundary-breaking Gucci/Balenciaga Hacker project. Now it will house ‘Collective Processes’ a group multi-media exhibition bringing together a special curation of Black Women Artists, curated by Home by Ronan Mckenzie, the art gallery, part community events space in London supporting Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic artists.
‘Collective Processes’ features the work of 15 artists, with output spanning photography, sculpture, painting, textiles and videography, who have become part of Home by Ronan Mckenzie’s extended creative family: Natasha Muluswela, Lorelle Aboagye, Chiizii, Sandra Daniel, Abena Lamptey, De’Anne Crooks, Merissa Hylton, Rayvenn D’Clarke, Kelly Jay, Tonique Sewell, Courtenay Welcome, Memunatu Barrie, Glory Samjolly, Rubee Samuel and Jo Sealy. The work of these artists exists in conversation with each other in the space, linked across the themes of ‘histories’ and ‘observations of culture, heritage and identity, through both personal and collective experiences.’

The Gucci Circolo facade – which has changed according to theme – is also changing . Its exterior will be reimagined with an artwork by artist and previous Gucci collaborator, Joy Yamusangie, titled ‘A New Love’ which was created as part of a collection of limited edition prints by LGBTQ+ artists curated by Russell Tovey for Pride 2021.
‘Collective Processes’ is on view until 21 December, when Gucci Circolo will close its doors for good. It’s not one to miss. §
