Document is a project by CVAN East Midlands that seeks to tell the story of the artist, at this time, in the region, in their voice. Over the last year they have been working with a group of artists to capture and present their experiences of working professionally in the contemporary visual arts, to shine a light on their creative process and give an insight into how they pursue their practices, and their lives, during the course of the project.
Filmmaker Bill Newsinger has been working with the six selected artists to gather footage of them making, talking about their work and their experiences over that period. The films capture their different approaches to practising, and tell their stories in their words.
Trailers have now been released, with the final films to follow later in the year.
Watch the six trailers here.
