April 2018 - March 2019
Stockholm-based artist Emily Roysdon (b. 1977) will be in dialogue with Camden Arts Centre’s programme over the coming year as she develops a new body of research. Engaging in queer history, politics of the body and social space, her practice materialises in many forms, including performance, photographic installation, print making, text, video, curating and collaborations.
Sharing interests and points of departure with many of the artists involved in the upcoming programme, Roysdon will provoke new discussions and initiate collaborations. Working from the Artists’ Studio as well as remotely, her research will unfold through events, publishing and online.
