Conversation Series II: Other Transmissions

Conversation Series II: Other Transmissions


Artlink is playing host to Conversations Series II as part of its national tour. This project, led by Venture Arts in partnership with Castlefield Gallery and the Whitworth, is a collaborative residency that brought together three learning-disabled artists who are part of the Venture Arts supported studios to work alongside the three visual artists. The group developed shared ideas, created new work, and reflected on the labels placed upon us by society. This residency built on the success of OutsiderXchanges from 2015-16.

The selected artists; Joe Beedles, James Desser, Amy Ellison, Frances Heap, Andrew Johnstone, and John Powell-Jones spent time with the Whitworth team and the Musgrave Kinley Outsider Art Collection, having time and access to explore the collection, its ethics and its display. This collection was used as a starting point to see what ideas and visual responses developed during the collaborative residency. Castlefield Gallery provided the artists taking part with mentoring and support at key stages over the course of the residency period. Disabled artist Tanya Raabe-Webber worked with the group to ground the work within the disability arts movement. The artists were be given access to free studio space in Hulme, Manchester, for five months (October 2018 – February 2019), coming together as a group for 1 day per week to share the space. A space at the Whitworth Art Gallery was also available for the residency artists to meet in periodically throughout the project.
