A two part online series from Phoebe Collings-James, looks to unravel what it means to facilitate and hold spaces for knowledge sharing.
This two part online series, curated by Camden Art Centre’s Freelands Lomax Ceramics Fellow, Phoebe Collings-James, looks to unravel what it means to facilitate and hold spaces for knowledge sharing. Mudbelly Teaches was conceived by Collings-James as an intersectional Black queer feminist space that seeks an intimate, reciprocal approach to learning. It is home to ceramics courses for Black people in London, taught by Black ceramicists & artists.
In Part 1, Collings-James invites artist, poet and dancer Serafine1369 and poet, artist, and tarot practitioner Daniella Valz Gen to consider how their practices of tarot, divination and performance can embody queer thinking around teaching in spaces outside and on the fridges of institutional structures. Rooted in spirituality, the artists consider how through these shared practices and spaces one can gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and find relief from alienation.
The Freelands Lomax Ceramics Fellowship supports emerging artists working with clay. Between 2017-21, the Fellowship offers artists part-time six-month residencies at Camden Art Centre with an exhibition in the following year.
