Sat 25 June, 12-2pm // At Turf Gallery // Free & refreshments provided
Taking place every last Saturday of the month, our lunchtime crits give artists a chance to get feedback on their work from a practicing artist exhibiting in our current exhibitions, in a supportive and friendly environment.
Simply submit or bring along your work, and we’ll take turns to discuss it and give feedback for each participant.
Participation isn’t mandatory – you’re welcome to simply come and view the works and take part in the discussions. If you’d like to participate in showing your artwork, it’s ideal to send imagery of or a link to the work you wish to show in the crit in advance so we can get it up on our projector! Email us here to submit along with any requirements for AV equipment and/or install instructions.
June’s crit will be led by Ground curator Alice Gale-Feeny. Alice uses video, voice and collage. Her works are made using a form of appropriation, taking what exists ‘as it is’, and re-articulating it via the individual’s subjective encounter. Current projects that interrogate the use of shared space, observe the subtle shifts that occur when landscapes, buildings, rooms, furniture and objects are used and re-purposed. The focus rests on how this history of activity is tracked and from which perspective.

// FEEDBACK FROM PAST PARTICIPANTS:
“The lunchtime crit at Turf was a real pleasure to be a part of. The space and attendees promoted a comfortable space that personally benefited me by provoking honesty and allowing pressing critique of one another’s works, it’s a safe space to get feedback and engage with a variety of practises with a variety of artists at different stages in their careers, or studies. I will certainly be attending more in the future.”

“I found it helpful and useful to meet with other Artists from around London whose work I wasn’t previously familiar with. Turf Projects seems to attract a really interesting mix of practitioners across a variety of disciplines, who are open to discussion, debate and the exchange of knowledge and experience”
