BLOC ASSEMBLY

BLOC ASSEMBLY

Ben Judd (Fine Art) is participating in Bloc Assembly with Compass Live Art at Bloc Projects Sheffield. He will be working with with Faye Green, a 2013 graduate from Fine Art at Newcastle University. Bloc Assembly creates a short-term, experimental platform to support the work of two artists at different points in their careers, whose practices incorporate performance and live elements in different ways. Judd and Green will be using the space to test or develop work in progress with an audience, and a dinner and round-table discussion will draw their work in relation to wider questions surrounding process in live art and performance and their distinction/intersection with other fields.

THE ITALIC I

THE ITALIC I

Emma Cocker (Fine Art) & her collaborator Clare Thornton (a participant in the NTU Fine Art Summer Lodge) have a new exhibition at project space plus in Lincoln from 3rd November.
The Italic I is a collaborative interdisciplinary project by Emma Cocker and Clare Thornton, comprising new sculptural, time-based and textual works for exhibition, animated by a series of live events. Within The Italic I, Cocker and Thornton approach the gallery as gymnasium, a training space for exploring the different states of potential made possible through voluntarily surrendering to the event of a repeated fall. The Italic I involves an attempt to slow and extend the duration of falling in order to suspend and elaborate upon its discrete phases or scenes, which in turn sheds light on the process of artistic collaboration itself and the making of meaning within creative labour.

37 PIECES OF FLAIR

Joanne Lee (Fine Art) has an essay entitled Nine Rather Disconnected Paragraphs: on mental health, capitalism, creative education and the politics of friendship in a new publication from curatorial duo Lloyd-Wilson.

It forms part of '37 pieces of flair' a 3 part season of arts and cinema starting with 4 film screenings at The Star and Shadow Cinema, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, followed by a publication launch and concluding with an exhibition and events programme at The NewBridge Project, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Unlike other mental health themed film seasons or exhibitions, '37 pieces of flair' will focus its attention less upon the individual stories of enduring mental health problems and rather take a step back in an attempt to grasp a broader look at, or investigation of, the society and its culture from which they emerge.
