NE9 Artists Talk and Walkthrough: Mass and Movement

On Friday, March 15th, starting at 6:30 p.m. the NAGB will hold an artists’ talk and walkthrough with several artists whose works are supported in this year's National Exhibition (NE9), “The Fruit and The Seed."

NE9ArtistsTalk_Mass&Movement_Sq.jpg

Join us as we welcome Saskia D’Aguilar, Rashad Leamount-Davis, Eric Rose, Heino Schmid and Averia Wright as they share the broader inspirations, provocations and curiosities behind their projects. Collectively, they will focus on the role that the environment and social awareness has played on aesthetic decisions, representation (and at times the lack thereof), and concerns around relationships with self and others. We will also discuss the intricacies and contradictions in how they observe their surroundings and growing creative industry.

We will end the discussion with a walkthrough and guided conversation on their projects. As a reminder, this event and all programming in support of the NE9 are FREE and open to the public.

Photo Walk and Talk in Over-the-Hill

Wrapping up support for the Creative Time Summit, on November 3rd, we will host a one-of-a-kind experience, inviting the public to join us on a Photo Walk and History Talk around the Over-the-Hill communities, with a guided tour by Christopher Davis, lead historian at the Pompey Museum. This vibrant and complex neighbourhood has been classified both as the “Nation’s Navel” and the Historic Centre, while also referred to by some as the “inner city” and the tour will focus on issues of gentrification and sustainability.

Joining us will be artists and academics Angelika Wallace-Whitfield, Melissa Alcena, Jodi Minnis, Dr Ian Bethell-Bennett and Eric Rose, each of them bringing their expertise and unique vision to the tour, along with the knowledgeable and impassioned NAGB staff.
