Home Residency Artist Talk by Delpha Hudson, Natasha Joseph and Steve Pool
Wednesday, 30 October 2019 from 15:00-17:00
Venue: 8 Albert Street , Osnabruck Square, Derby DE1 2DS
Join us for this free networking and artists’ talk event, and meet Delpha Hudson and Natasha Joseph, our current artists in residence, who will be sharing the progress of their ‘Home’ residency so far and discussing participation in artistic practice with guest speaker Steve Pool. This is a great opportunity to talk about art, and to meet and socialise with other artists.
The Poly-Technic, established in 2006, is the collaborative arts practice of Steve Pool and Kate Genever.
Steve will be talking about some of their work, including Never-Land. Steve says, “Never-Land is a fictional nowhere, imagined for this project. Its ambition is to ask people what Europe will be like in 200 years. Never-Land is a project we have developed with partners. It also includes us undertaking 3 commissions; the first at Yorkshire Artspace Sheffield, the second with Ca’Foscari University, Venice as part of their 2019 international conference ‘Europe and Ruskin’ and the third with Leicester Printworks.
In Sheffield we developed a 6 week project spaces for anyone to use, a series of small writing commissions and opportunities for young artists. In Venice we worked for one week with 6th form students and staff at Liceo Artistico Guggenheim School culminating in a public exhibition in Venice and delivered a paper at CaFoscari University conference to discuss the project and our ideas. In Leicester we are delivering a screenprint workshop in response to works made across the project that also addressed the theme.”
