art lab conflab
Deadline: n/a | Published: 20/10/2018 | City: London | Region: London | Country: United Kingdom | Abena Addo
artlab conflab is a new initiative aimed at empowering women and invited guests to explore particularly visual art of a ’non-commercial’, controversial, exploratory, experimental or developmental nature. Or just to view their work in a different, supportive and non-judgemental, ‘human-scale’ environment.
The project can be as defined or as loose, as you want it to be. There are no prescriptive elements to it. It would be good if there were some element of interaction about your work, only because it is a common thread in opening up your work to a greater audience, as some people need help to 'unpick' and make sense of art.
Too often, formal education puts people off from talking about their work with others, as women in particular, and others too, have felt misunderstood, or not listened to. This residency comes with the chance to be listened to, or to talk about your work, if desired. The exact breakdown will be discussed, but it will be around forty five minutes in total.
Set in a leafy South London suburb, it is the brain child of Abena Addo BA, PGCE and speaks to her experience as an Artist, Teacher, and community activist, and someone who has been through formal art education. She says; “I think we are living in a very pivotal time, the kind of moment where we need art, we need reflection, we need thought”
This space will provide women with the opportunity to reflect on their practice, to honour and develop themselves as a creative body, and to invite their loved ones, or perhaps their very own ‘doubters’ and ’naysayers’ that will assist them to tap into their subconscious inhibitors and elevate their confidence to another level.
Following her inclusion in a recent open studio, she realised that people really respond to the intimate environment of the domestic studio, and researched that ‘home galleries’ were a thing, and decided to create one. Well, this opportunity is not a gallery per se, but you are welcome to invite people to an outcome of your work at the conclusion of the process.
Cost of the experience is £145. This will be from Sunday evening from 7.30pm to Thursday, at a time of your convenience, before 6pm. Basic sleeping accomodation is included. The arrangement is for a solo guest.
Archive Package £50. Factual ['Non-judgement' based] write-up, documentation, and inclusion on website
www.artyesart.com, for your references.
There will be a £5 processing fee for submissions.
There will be a [Returnable] deposit of fifty pounds.
