Stuart Hall Library
16 John Islip St, London
Wednesday 31 May 2023
Free, booking required
As part of Future Commons’ series of public events responding to the needs and wants of art workers at large, this session led by artist Jamila Prowse is for anyone who would like to share ideas and works in progress to receive feedback and guidance.
A ‘crit’ is a critical review of work, central to art education curriculums – a format we want to offer more widely for students and non-students alike, regardless of title, career stage or institutional affiliation.
The session is limited to 6 people, where each person will have time to share their work and receive feedback. To make the most of the session, bring any examples of work and/or aspects you’d like feedback on or discussion around.
Some of the mediums and areas Jamila works in are textiles, moving image, photography, painting, sculpture and around disability and mixed-race identity.
There will be a break and refreshments.
If you have any specific access requirements please email Future Commons Coordinator, Priya Jay email@example.com. We will do our best to meet any requests within the time and budget we have.
If you sign up and can no longer attend please let us know so that we can make that space available to others.
* Depending on Jamila Prowse’s health and capacity on the day, we may move this session online and will contact you directly to let you know. We’ll keep the library space open and Priya Jay will be there, in case you come in person.
About Jamila Prowse
Jamila Prowse is an artist, writer, researcher and lecturer who employs art making as a methodology for articulating and processing her lived experience as a disabled, mixed race person of black heritage. Presently, Jamila is an artist on UAL Decolonising Institute’s 20/20 programme and Sussex University’s Full Stack Feminism Project, where she will be making artistic visualisations of her ongoing research into disability inclusivity and cripping the art world.
In 2023 Jamila will continue to work across moving image, textiles and programming, plus experimenting with new mediums of painting, sculpture and photography, while journeying towards her first solo exhibition at Quench Gallery, Margate in September. Previous exhibitions and screenings include Studio Voltaire (London, UK), Hordaland Kunstsenter (Bergen, Norway), Obsidian Coast (Bradford, UK) and South London Gallery (London, UK).
