I am participating in a panel discussion on “Engaging People Through Creativity” at New Art Social, a series of events organised to offer an opportunity for creative people to gain an insight into other people’s artistic process. New Art Social is a night at which exciting new and established writers, poets and artists share their work through readings and panel discussions. It is curated by author Guy Mankowski, who aims to break down the barriers which keep the wealth of artistic talent of Newcastle in isolation.
I am speaking at a panel organised by ‘Women Working in Sculpture – Towards a New Lexicon’ research group to present my experience as a newly graduate artist/curator practising in the U.K. as an immigrant. In this event, I will be discussing the issues myself and lot of artists like me deal with upon graduating.
I have been invited to do a podcast interview with Spark FM Sunderland with my Lungs Project collaborators Angela Wingate-Burdon and Rebecca Burdon. Edinburgh based artist Mary Trodden, who was featured in the first issue of Lungs also joined us in discussion. We talked to Jay Sykes about our current open call and how our project developed following our launch in 2016.
Today I was in conversation with artist Julie Louise Bemment regarding her latest pop-up exhibition “Photography and Objecthood” held at the PH Space in NewBridge Project. We talked about the intersection of photography and photographic documentation of sculpture amongst other topics like surfaces and three dimensionality.
