Having returned from a fascinating and disorienting residency in Belfast (I’m still looking for interviewees from Belfast by the way) I’m now back in my own studio preparing work for the forthcoming work in progress show at Site Gallery this August. I’m going to show the interactive portrait cushions as well as some newer work that is still taking shape – a big part of my aim for the show is to start conducting interviews with transgender people in Sheffield, so please get in touch if that aspect interests you. The other Freelands artists are also preparing brilliant work that I’m super excited about, and we’ll be sharing an activity space for improvisation, exchange, and play. See some details here.
Platform 2019 highlights the work of the first five artists on our Freelands Artists Programme – a rolling five-year initiative supporting two-year paid residencies for emerging artists in the Sheffield City Region.
08 Aug 2019 – 01 Sep 2019
Artists exhibiting at Site Gallery: Lucy Vann, Siân Williams and Zoyander Street.
Our Platform artists will be delivering family-friendly workshops over August based on their work. Children and their families will have the opportunity to explore the artists’ creative process and make their own artwork in response.
The second year of the programme opens to applications on Monday 3 June.
