Join us for Live Lab at Vivid Projects on 15 July 2-4:30pm.
At Live Lab, Associate Curator Kate Spence would like to get to know you better. Whether an artist, performer, producer or simply someone with an interest in new live work, you are invited to meet a group of artists with a strong live/performative strand to their practice. Artists including Marcus Keating, Nancy J Clemance, Alex Billingham, Timber and Battery, Ann Mills, Emily Scarrott and Hannah Taylor, Kaajel Patel, Vicky Roden and Rachel Parry/G.A.L will present short introductions to their practice.
Documentation of past performance projects from the Vivid Projects archive will be on view and refreshments available.
What is Vivid Live ?
A new regular strand, Vivid Live will bring daring touring work to Midlands audiences and cultivate diverse artistic talent through new commissions. The strand is under development with live art producer and artist, Kate Spence, who joins us as Associate Curator.
A highly active artist, producer and live arts advocate, Kate Spence founded Home For Waifs And Strays with Aleksander Wojtulewicz in 2013 and in 2016 produced the Homegrown national residency project. Her recent performances include Sluice Art Fair, Spill Festival Ipswich, FemFresh at Queens Mary’s University, Fierce Festival, Junction Festival and Tempting Failure in Bristol. Kate’s own work has focused on performative practice since 2011. She has a special interest in the way the body can be used in performance, as a site of political and social significance, as a place of memory, as a tool for expression and interaction, as a vehicle for transformation, and as a living, breathing statement of intent.
