What can artists from London and New York City learn from each other, in finding space to develop and present their work, in surviving on low incomes, and in tackling the gentrification that threatens their place in the city? Many artists are having to consider changing their practice or leaving town to continue to practice: what solutions can we come up with together to help our local creative communities?
Panelists: David Terry (Chair), NYFA Director and Curator, Grants & Exhibitions; Felicity Hogan, UAL East Coast Alumni Committee Member, Artist and Acting Director, NYFA Learning; Fred Deakin, UAL Chair of Interactive Chair of Digital Art, Operator of collaborative organization Fred & Company, and half of Mercury and Brit nominated band Lemon Jelly; Russell Martin, Artist and Director of Artquest, a programme of UAL; Jane South, Sculpture and Installation Artist, and Alumna Central St. Martins UAL.
This event is co-organized and presented by NYFA and UAL as part of an ongoing collaboration.
