Thursday 18th April, 7.30pm
The conversations aim to create dialog and to provoke critical thinking around art and culture and the contested ‘value’ of culture in society. The title of the programme aims to give the artists presenting, a guide to frame the presentation of their work and talk about their art practice and how that connects with the world they live in. It provides an opportunity to talk about their unique approach to their practice, how it has changed and developed. How does the work interrogate the world you live in and what has been the driving force in making work?
The format for the evening of the talk will be two different artists giving a 20 minute presentation; one artist will be from outside the county and the other will be a local artist. Afterwards there will be a discussion with both artists and a Q&A with the audience chaired by Bernadette Hopkins. We will be asking artists from different disciplines to present showing diversity in art forms and practice.
