SAT 30 SEPT 12-2PM // AT TURF // FREE & OPEN TO ALL
Calling all artists, art students, performers and graduates alike!
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 in a supportive and friendly environment. September’s crit will be led by Liam Geary Baulch, exhibiting artist in ‘You’re Surrounded by Me’. Baulch uses the structures of song, dance and costume in performances that discuss an array of topics, including; climate change, contemporary labour and activism. Taking influence from folk culture and protest praxis, he creates paradoxical characters and choreographed, participatory events. In ‘Sea Squad’ (2016-17), Geary Baulch formed a cheerleading squad to represent the sea and combat climate change, linking the power of molecular structures to cheer formations.
Email us your images beforehand at at firstname.lastname@example.org along with any additional requirements if you’d like us to get images up full scale on our projector!
Participation isn’t mandatory – you’re welcome to simply come and view the works and take part in the discussions
