The publication Multivoices: a script by researchers, which I have edited is being launched as part of Antiuniversity Now 2018.
This event is part of the Antiuniversity Now festival 9–15 June 2018. See the full programme on www.antiuniversity.org
A group of seven artists used a vacant and derelict back-to-back council house in Burnley, Leeds as a base for a three month residency. The house was then opened to the public, with work produced in response to the house and site exhibited in the rooms.
The aim of the project is to produce new work in response to the house and its history, architecture and site and to create a dialogue with the community. The house itself is a large back-to-back that has been ‘under siege’; brown shutters barricade five of the windows and the broken and battered door […] for a while it is an artists workspace and gallery.
Understanding the origins of Artist House 45 within East Street Arts by tracing past projects about hosting, guests, and housing. Shoes off!
Written for Place, Space, Action, the inaugural exhibition at the Market Gallery. Market Gallery is a new exhibition space located in the Queensgate indoor market, Huddersfield.
Part of the Temporary Contemporary initiative: a partnership between the market, Kirklees Council and the School of Art, Design and Architecture, University of Huddersfield.
East Street Arts organised a meal at Artist House 45 to catch up with John and Manon, the current residents, and discuss plans for a publication about the ongoing project.
I will be running a workshop about artist live/work at ‘Culture Community Creativity’ conference, part of the University of Huddersfield’s ROTOR programme.
A chapter I wrote about housing, architecture and performance art has been published in From Conflict to Inclusion in Housing: Interaction of Communities, Residents and Activists. (Edited by Graham Cairns, Georgios Artopoulos and Kirsten Day)
The whole book can be read here: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/ucl-press/browse-books/from-conflict-to-inclusion-in-housing
I have always said that we have to put Duchamp’s urinal back in the restroom.
I am helping to facilitate ‘A Day on Resilience’, at East Street Arts on 29th June. I will be initiating a discussion about the benefits and precarity of blurring life and work within creative projects.
