Wednesday 11 December
6.30 – 8.00pm
A new series of talks for artists, run with Artquest. The sessions considers the edges around what defines contemporary artistic practice. How do lifestyle, family and money have presence within the working lives of artists?
How can the demands of a family impact on and be integrated into practice? Artist Jemima Brown talks about her experiences as an artist and parent. Brown uses sculpture, drawing and time based media to explore formal sculptural decision making, suggested narrative and social critique. Graduating from an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art in London in 1995, followed by a Fulbright Scholarship at UCLA, Los Angeles in 1998, she has established her practice as an artist based in London and working internationally. Curatorial and collaborative projects, such as Family Viewing, (a peripatetic, episodic project), or Enemies of Good Art, compliment and contextualise Brown's work as an artist.
Recent exhibitions include a solo show in September 2011 at Standpoint Gallery in London as the recipient of the 2010/11 Mark Tanner Sculpture Award.
Children are welcome, and a simple play corner will be available during the session for kids who would like something extra to do.
Tickets are £4 and include refreshments.
In partnership with Artquest.
