Everyone’s a critic. But who is it for? The artist? The audience? Someone else? Who holds the power when we talk about art? What’s the role of writing, talking, tweeting, sharing about art?
Integrate Arts is taking a step back to look around so we can move forward. With a special interest in artists, curators, and makers in the local area who are black, people of colour and/or Indigenous artists, Integrate Arts thought about making a magazine to document and share the work being produced in the region. But do we need another art magazine? What else is possible? Are all these forms inherited, and do they make sense for black, people of colour, or Indigenous artists? Is there another way forward? If so, what does it look like?
Feedback/Feedforward is a series of two discussion groups to explore these ideas, so we can look back, see where we’ve come from and what we’ve done, and discuss ways forward. We’re inviting practitioners in poetry, filmmaking, art, writing, dance, and more, who each possess a range of experiences, cultures, languages, and creative practices, for a public discussion to explore the role and relevance of discussing, writing, and sharing about art in all its forms.
Imagine new possibilities for writing and talking about art.
