Acts of Transfer
About the Event
In association with Community Takeover – Stories.
A collaboration between artist Katy Beinart and writer Lizzie Lloyd, this project uses image and text to reactivate past socially engaged art projects, making visible their legacies to better understand their ongoing effect. Beinart and Lloyd have worked with 9 artists and project participants to revisit an artwork. Through ‘re-enacting’ the original work they reflect on the meaning of the work, how the memory of it shifts, and what both artists and participants have taken away from it. These re-enactments are shown as a series of short films, images and texts work in progress documenting the conversations Beinart and Lloyd have held with each artist/participant. Participating artists are: Gil Mualem-Doron, Young In Hong, Eelyn Lee, Paula McCloskey and Sam Vardy, Harun Morrison, Benjamin Owen, Matt Stokes, Sophie Warren and Jonathan Mosley.
An associated programme of events will be held in 2022 with partners SEAS, Brighton CCA, and Towner Eastbourne.
Supported by Arts Council England and the Centre for Spatial, Environmental and Cultural Politics at the University of Brighton.
