Join Venture Arts at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art for a symposium exploring the place of collaboration in contemporary visual art practice, furthering conversations around learning disability visual arts aesthetic and practice and it’s place within the wider contemporary visual arts world.
We will be presenting the work of 12 contemporary artists, with and without disability, as a part of our latest project OutsiderXchanges. A presentation of artwork documenting the process and developments of the project will be displayed in the Quay Gallery from the 1st-31st of October.
We’ll be inviting key leaders in the field to discuss what collaboration means to them and their artists. Speakers at the symposium include: Amanda Sutton, Director, Venture Arts, Manchester; Ruth Gould, Director, DadaFest International; Tanya-Raabe Webber, Artist; Sheryll Catto, Co-Director Action Space, London; Elisabeth Gibson, Executive Artistic Director, Project Ability, Glasgow; Shan Edwards, Chief Executive/Artistic Director, The Art House, Wakefield.
