This month sees me starting a new research case study, and in the same, a new role – Thinker in Residence for The Drawing Shed’s ‘IdeasFromElse[W]here’ project at Winns Gallery in E17.

IdeasFromElse[W]here is an Arts Lab style project, informed also by the likes of Kaprow, led by artists Sally Labern and Bobby Lloyd, founders of The Drawing Shed and co-curated by artist Jordan McKenzie. From 16th June to 13 July, from a base at Winns Gallery and its surrounding Lloyd Park, E17, artists and members of the public will collaborate in creating artworks and interventions to co-produce a ‘festival of ideas’ that will challenge and propose anew ways of making and presenting art. The artists involved are Leena ChauhanLeah LovettPablo PerezzaratePhil Sanger,Daniella Valz Gen, and NYC’s Art In Odd Places’ Ed Woodham. Anything from film, live writing and art, sculpture, sound, digital and performance will be both informing and incorporated into an evolving event.

The blog will be a part of this, a platform not just to show what has been happening but to act as an adjunct to the conversations, devising, making and presentation of art, and with a nod to my role as Thinker in Residence, a space for critical thought.

I’ll post links to the blog as the project progresses…
