Virtual Studio Visits: Performing Identity Using New Media
Focusing on the theme of Performing Identity, this series of studio visits will explore topics of forgotten queer histories, intersections of the body and technology, feminist and gender theories, legacies of colonialism, healing practices and the corporatisation of wellbeing, and allegories of absence and removal evoking issues of migration, through a range of media including video, installation, photography, painting and sound.
During the visits, the artists will discuss their ideas, practices, research, processes of making, collaborations, as well as revealing their studio spaces. Former Gallerist and Founder of StudioVisit, Tyler Woolcott, will introduce each studio visit and help guide the discussion around the chosen topic. It will be an incredibly inspiring way to explore the relationship between art and contemporary issues that artists are exploring today, from migration and gender, to colonial histories and collecting new media, getting behind the scenes and seeing the messy and magical spaces of creation. Participants will have the opportunity to meet these high-profile international emerging artists and engage with them through questions at the end of each session. This interactive format will draw out related issues and result in a group discussion about the complex and highly relevant topic of identity.
