Kelly Large is currently artist in residence at the New Art Gallery, Walsall where she’s examining “the construction and circulation of The New Art Gallery’s collection and archive as a base to create new art work.” There’s an “open studio event” on Friday 18th and Thursday 24th of January from 2pm entitled Me, Myself and I.
Usually, â€˜open studioâ€™ events provide an opportunity for the public to meet the artist in their studio environment. However, for Me, Myself and I, instead of being on hand to discuss her work with the open studio audiences, Kelly has invited a selection of artists and curators to describe their understanding of her art practice to visitors. Rather than receive a â€˜definitiveâ€™ description from the artist herself, Me, Myself and I offers open studio visitors various descriptions of Kellyâ€™s art practice ranging from the deeply personal, partial, fictional, anecdotal and ideal; each shaped by the experiences of the speaker, rather than the artist herself.
Contributors include: Marsha Bradfield, Mary Anne Francis, The Hut Project, Helen Jones, Emily Marsden, Rebecca May Marston, Elizabeth Rowe, Becky Shaw and Gavin Wade.
Both events are free. Reserve your place by calling 01922 654400.
