Artist Feedback Session: Led by Isabelle Zhizhi Southwood



Taking place at the end of each month, our free feedback sessions are a chance to get feedback on your work from a practicing artist in a supportive and friendly environment. All kinds of creative work are welcome.

October’s feedback session will be led by artist Isabelle Zhizhi Southwood.

For this online session, we will be using video calling platform Zoom. It is possible to take part with or without setting up an account, and we will send instructions for joining ahead of the day.

This workshop is free to attend and open to all but booking is recommended, as spaces are limited. There are five slots available for showing work, but all are welcome to join in the discussion. For those showing work, please send through images or links you would like to share to: by Friday 30 October 2020.



Isabelle Zhizhi Southwood makes objects, drawings, paintings and videos about experiences that are universal yet feel painfully personal; birth, death, love. The process of making is important, often involving collaboration. Material choices are influenced by a mixed Chinese and British heritage.

After studying at The Slade, receiving the Grocers’ Queen’s Golden Jubilee Scholarship and Clare Winsten Memorial Award, Southwood co-founded Turf Projects. Previous exhibitions include Young London (V22, London), Polycephaly (Pulchri Studio, The Netherlands), Tru Luv (Turf Projects, Croydon), Bloomberg New Contemporaries (Spike Island, Bristol & ICA, London).
