Open Sheffield Studios (#opensheff + #artWORK)

Last Bank Holiday weekend and the forth coming weekend sees the studios of Sheffield folks open for the public to come and miranda around and be nosey and hold dialogues with artists (i think alot of the artists involved are really just wanting to sell their art to pay for their mortage ). To be part of this open networking event, applicants had to pay  hefty £95- quite a substantial amount. triggering an instant class and income boundary. that could literally be studio rent for a month or 2!

Taylor Le Fin, a friend of mine, got the Cathedral as her open studio because as a live artist – any place is her canvas. her platform. her work is heavily based on processes and discussions. in true style to her work, she invited a few of us who finished the MA together to work together, or use this bizar situation to make work and involve even more people. The bureocracy Taylor faces within institutions for the justification of what is ‘art’, (is her practice too risky for them ect ect )has led her to invite us  to use this platform for a bit of art criticism, collaboration, discussion on community and art, and to have an experimental platform for processes within art practices.

Artists involved in the dialogue include: Taylor Le Fine; Pippa Lennox; Nat Mortimer ; me; others; YOU?

Also other awesome things happening:

Our Town’ – Community Arts Project. -saturday, May 7 · 10:00am – 5:00pm, Sheffield Cathedral

part of Open Sheffield, members of the public are invited to join in with the construction of a fictional town.
The project is part of a series of works by Sheffield Artist, Taylor Le Fin, who asks us to consider if/how our ideas of a community have changed and how this impacts on our formed identity.

This event is all age, all background and FREE!
