29 March - 21 June, will see Artlink Hull playing host to Conversations Series II as part of its tour. This iteration of the series delves into feelings and thoughts about the labels placed upon artists by society, and the art world more broadly. Continual conversation and a sharing of art practices have resulted in the new work that you will see in ‘Other Transmissions.’ The artists are: Joe Beedles, James Desser, Amy Ellison, Frances Heap, Andrew Johnstone and John Powell-Jones, and facilitated by James Pollitt and Jennifer Gilbert from Venture Arts.
The new works created will be exhibited at Artlink alongside iconic pieces from the Whitworth’s Musgrave Kinley Outsider Art Collection, one of the most significant public collections of Outsider Art in the UK, including work by Judith Scott and Henry Darger. Six students from the University of Salford have been documenting the residency throughout using photography, film and drawing, and their resulting works will be shown alongside the residency artist’s works at Artlink too.
