GalleryArt and architecture are in dialogue with each other in the latest show at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery, University of Greenwich.

Plan Un-plan opens on Saturday 15 July and sees artist collective Outside Architecture exploring themes of organisation and unpredictability.

The university's gallery curator David Waterworth explains: "Previously we have hosted two-person shows, where an artist has exhibited alongside an architect or architectural practice.

"In this case we have invited the artists to work in conversation with the building, and with aspects of architectural practice connected with planning social space."

Outside Architecture adds: "Each work in this exhibition possesses its own internal and organised rigour. How these organised systems may change or transform is the subject of the exhibition. Thus, the exhibition itself is conceived as an experiment in the sense that the activation of the 'unplanned' is contingent on a kind of choreographing between the individual parts.

"Planning and the avoidance of the unpredictable clearly matter in our shared environment and in many other areas of day-to-day life. An artwork that carries the potential to produce something in excess of a plan won't mitigate the need or necessity for order, but it might de-position the hold of structured determination in all areas of life." 

Exhibiting artists: Matt Calderwood, Henry Coleman, Bernice Donszelmann, Clare Goodwin, Lucy Gunning, Vanessa Jackson, Frank Kent, Mary Maclean, Tim Renshaw, Helen Robertson.

The exhibition opens to the public on Saturday 15 July and runs until Saturday 9 September. 

The gallery is open Tuesday to Friday, 11am - 5 pm and Saturdays 11am - 4 pm.
