Paul Civati – Artist Lunchtime Crit

For November’s Crit, Turf kindly invited Lenses of Croydon to lead.

I and other members brought along some work to share. My work primarily focuses on city, streets and cityscapes all across London. We had some interesting discussions on composition, my techniques and the time of day images are shot as light is so important.

Jess Bryant – Artists Lunchtime Crit

I have attended a few of Turfs’ lunchtime crits, always being surprised and excited by the number of local people these engage (quite a rarity from my experience in galleries) and the crit attendees’ political and creative relationship to the local area, so when I was asked to host one I was delighted.

ALICE GALE-FEENY – ARTISTS LUNCHTIME CRIT

Looking up, honesty and flirtatiousness  

 

It was incredibly refreshing and stimulating to come to Turf Projects the day after the EU referendum results and to talk about what three artists had been doing. Not only did it allow me to escape my own head and the sinking feeling that seemed to lie beneath everything else, but it also reminded me that its exciting, humbling and necessary to be together, speaking about our ideas and view points; conceptual, political or experiential.

INTERPRETING ART WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENT – AN INTRODUCTION

Caroline Dawson, a specialist in interpretation of artworks for the visually impaired, is delivering a three-part talk and workshop series over the coming months, using Turf Projects’ upcoming exhibition Ground as a basis and playground. Beginning with an introductory talk and Q&A on the 18 May, Caroline will bookend Ground with two workshops (11 June & 23 July). The first will collaboratively explore making the exhibition accessible for blind and partially sighted people, with the second analysing and feeding back on its success and considering longterm applications – both within and outside Turf.

Here, developed from our first introductory session on the 18 May, Caroline offers an introduction to the subject, looking at the current provision for blind and partially sighted people within different gallery spaces, as well as the whys and hows of in engaging those with visual impairment.
