Live Lab

15 July 2017


Set your diaries 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. We are specifically interested in meeting artists with a strong live/performative strand to their practice and can host up to 9 artists to present short introductions to their practice at each event slot. The Live Lab is open to the public through free ticketed bookings, with documentation of past performance projects from the Vivid Projects archive on view. Refreshments will be available.

If you are interested in presenting your practice, email for more details. You will need to include a short artist statement, a brief description of your most recent work and up to 3 images of your work. Video and audio links can also be included. Deadline 26/6/17.

A new regular strand, Vivid Live will bring daring touring work to Midlands audiences and cultivate diverse artistic talent through new commissions. We are delighted to welcome 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.
