Wednesday 17 October, 6.30 – 8.30pm
Join the 2017/18 PEER FORUM artists and invited guest Jala Wahid for an evening of discussion, performance and readings in response to the feminine grotesque.
The event will be accompanied by a DIY publication.
The 2017/18 PEER FORUM group led by artist Alicia Tsigarides included Leah Carless, Katharine Fry, Rebecca Jagoe, Olivia Brazier, Annie Attridge, Lindsey Mendick, Alicia Reyes McNamara, Holly Hendry, Mindy Lee and Tenant of Culture.
Tsigarides established the group to examine the representation of femininity within each of their works. Through their sessions together, they looked at how the body emerges in humorous, erotic or grotesque ways. More information about the group and their sessions can be found on our medium blog.
PEER FORUM is an annual mentoring programme set up by Artquest aiming to assist artists by providing them with the funding, space and resources necessary to establish their own peer mentoring groups.
