Curation

In 2017, Bryony founded IRL platform all in: The first all in: event was a 10-day long exhibition held at House of Vans, Waterloo. all in: the mind brought together 19 emerging and established creatives including Tim Noble, Akinola Davies, Celia Hempton and A Sai Ta, to look a closer look at mental health.

all in: the mind was covered by Dazed, i-D, Refinery29, LOVE magazine, Wonderland, TimeOut London, Amuse and ArtViste. Over 700 people attended the opening night and the panel discussion sold out.

In August 2018, Bryony transformed the House of Vans gallery space into an site-specific, pop-up artists' residency called all in: progress, building a community of London's most promising young talent right underneath the city's busiest station.

Fine artist Alfie Kungu, fashion designer Paolina Russo, painter George Rouy and multidisciplinary artist Wilson Oryema generated a new entire body of work across fine art, poetry and fashion, driving their practice in unexpected new directions in response to the community working alongside them. The residency was covered by publications including Dazed, Wonderland, ELLE , Evening Standard, TimeOut, i_-D, It's Nice That and Another Man.

In October 2018, Bryony curated all in: bodied at Galeria Melissa in Covent Garden presented by Brazilian shoe brand Melissa. A collaboration between artist Zoë Marden, designer Sinéad O’Dwyer, choreographer Grace Nicol and dance artist Becky Namgauds, all in: bodied was a love letter to the female-identifying body in motion: the way she occupies space, the infinite variation of forms she takes and the way she moves through the world. all in: bodied was covered by It's Nice That, Dazed Beauty and ELLE.
