Eventbrite - Groundwerk 1.6 // Writing Artist Statements


In this free artists’ workshop, learn how to write artist statements which accurately represent you and your work with Owain McGilvary & Yan White of McGilvary/White.

“We often think of the roles people play in art and think about the artists’ role within the work (specifically us) that act like ‘signatures’ and how you can subvert these aspects by using funniness and playfulness. Does that make sense?” – from McGilvary/White interview at Young Artists in Conversation by James Harper.


Groundwerk is a monthly series of free practical workshops for artists and creatives wishing to gain the skills to support their practice.

This workshop is free to attend and open to all but booking is recommended as spaces are limited.



McGilvary/White are collaboration between Owain McGilvary & Yan White who currently live and work in Bristol.
They are currently collaborating with their mothers and asking other people to make work for them.
Exhibitions and projects include The White Pube and East Bristol Contemporary online residencies (both 2017); Exchange Rates (with Collar), New York City; paM Invites, The Drawing Room, London; Identify your limitations, acknowledge the periphery, Vitrine London and I am not Tino Seghal- I am the Cleaner, Nahmad Projects, London (all 2016).
