Ordering Chaos - an exhibition of new work by Alice Kelway-Bamber
12th November 2013

King Edward’s is pleased to announce Ordering Chaos, an exhibition of new work by Artist in Residence Alice Kelway-Bamber. Her work focuses on the making and breaking of mathematical rules using gestural mark-making. These ideas are presented via dynamic installation that combines drawing with sculpture.


The exhibition, which will be displayed in the school’s Bunker Gallery and will run from 13 December to 28 February, will be accompanied by a collection of work by the school’s Art scholars that will be showing in the Art Department.


There will be a ‘Public Preview’ on Thursday 12th December from 6pm until 9pm, to which members of the public are warmly invited. No booking is necessary and drinks and nibbles will be available.


The Exhibition will then be open from 13th December to 28th February 2014 on weekdays from 9am to 5pm, by appointment only. Please email Miss Kelway-Bamber on to arrange a visit.

Notes for the Editor:


Alice Kelway-Bamber

Alice is the school’s Artist-in-Residence and has joined King Edward’s having completed her MA at the world renowned University of the Arts, London, where she studied firstly at Camberwell College of Arts and latterly at Chelsea College of Art and Design.

As part of her MA, Alice’s work focused on the disruption of self-imposed rules. She has just completed a major sculptural work that uses Indian screens as its inspiration and is a metaphor for the breakdown in communication between artist and viewer.


Her role as Artist-in-Residence involves running various activities across all age groups, including our art scholars as well as helping with lessons and talking to senior pupils on an individual basis about their work. Alice is also a resident tutor in Tudor House and assists with hockey coaching.


King Edward’s School


King Edward’s School in Witley, Surrey, is an independent co-educational boarding and day school for boys and girls from ages 11 to 18. The School was founded in 1553 to provide housing and education for destitute children in London.  To this day the School still provides bursary support and boarding accommodation for around a quarter of its students and high levels of pastoral care are at the heart of its ethos. However, the School has moved on to become one of the top independent schools in the country, with a reputation for excellence in many areas, including its International Baccalaureate 6th Form curriculum.
