RICHARD WHITBY IN CONVERSATION WITH NATASHA HOARE
Apr 29, 2019 7:00pm - 8:30pm talk/event
Richard Whitby in conversation with Natasha Hoare, Curator at Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, discussing his latest moving image work The Lost Ones, commissioned for Jerwood/FVU Awards 2019: Going, Gone.
 
The Lost Ones follows a disparate group of individuals who are waiting to have their residency status assessed. They are people in limbo – whose personal circumstances or economic situations have been suddenly re-evaluated and whose future status now seems conditional on a test that they need to pass.
 
Richard Whitby is a video and performance artist, who lives and works in London. He often working with collaborators producing music, costumes and objects. Whitby studied at Wimbledon College of Art, Slade School of Art and took part in the LUX Associate Artists Programme 2012- 2013, completing a PhD in Humanities and Cultural Studies from the London Consortium in 2016. Recent presentations include GIVE GOOD, Twentyone, Southend (2018), The Jump Room, The Old Waterworks, Southend (2017), Jerwood Staging Series, Jerwood Arts, London (2017), Corrupt Blood Incident, South Kiosk, London. His book The Jump Room was published by The Old Waterworks in 2018. He is a member of the National Executive Committee for Artists’ Union England.
 
Natasha Hoare is Curator at Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, London. She was previously a Curator at Witte de With Centre for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam (2014-18) and Assistant Curator for the Marrakech Biennale (2012-14). Independent curatorial projects include An unpredictable expression of human potential, Sharjah Biennale 13 (2017) and Self-Reflection; Mark Wallinger at the Freud Museum, London (2017). As a writer she has contributed to Frieze, ArtReview, Ibraaz, amongst others, and is contributing editor of ExtraExtra. She is the author of The New Curator (2016) published by Laurence King.

Jun 19 - Aug 18, 2019
Five new commissions by early-career makers Lucie Gledhill, Abigail Booth and Max Bainbridge (Forest + Found), Mark Corfield-Moore, Tana West and Bethan Lloyd Worthington brought about through the biennial Jerwood Makers Open. Each artist combines a high level of technical skill with imagination and intellectual adventure, constituting a fresh and exciting direction in their work.
The artists were selected from over 300 applications in response to a UK-wide call for entries for self-directed projects from artists, makers and collaborators within 10 years of establishing their practice. Each artist receives a bursary of 8,000 to support experimentation and the making of new work for this exhibition. A curatorial development programme will run alongside the exhibitions made possible with Art Fund support.
