Townley & Bradby are developing an event for us to host on the 18th July. We’ve worked individually before with Townley & Bradby (way back), but this is the first time QH has, so we’re really looking forward to seeing what playful event evolves.
This is their take on it:
During the last three years we have been documenting our children’s play. Artists As Parents As Artists will be a presentation of artwork we have made in response to this documentation. The artwork on show will include large-scale photos, two films and a series of drawings.
We have found that many art events (talks, exhibitions, residencies) are difficult or impossible to access with our children. For this reason Artists As Parents As Artistsis an event for both children and adults. Central to the event will be play and food. There will be a range of loose materials that can be rearranged, played with and used constructively by both children and adults during the event. There will also be a communal meal. Rather than devote a particular section of the event to discussion of the artwork, this will take place in amongst the other activities.
