East Midlands Visual Arts Network - Annual Overview

This one-day event will consider how different relationships between organisations, artists and audiences can stretch the boundaries of art practice, using the work of two different organisations to stimulate dialogue, questions and discussion. The speakers on the day will be Alessandro Vincentelli discussing Baltic 39 and Donna Lynas discussing Wysing Arts Centre.

Thursday 25 October 2012, 13:00-18:30

The event focuses on the processes involved in producing contemporary visual art, now and in the future, with a view to informing the region’s artistic ambitions, collaborative ventures and networks.

Starting the day with informal group conversations over a shared lunch, the event will engage a diverse sample of the regional arts sector including representatives from the region's main contemporary art venues, projects, artists and curators, offering the opportunity to socialise, exchange experiences and network. The early evening sees a change in venue to encourage further discussion in a less formal atmosphere.

The event has been developed by Bruce Asbestos (Trade) and Niki Russell (Reactor/Primary) for EMVAN.

£5 entry (includes lunch and refreshments)
