This is the first of a series of articles that focus on artists living and working in different cities across the world. Each gives insight into the artist’s practice, the influence of the city and their thoughts on the relationships between the two. The artist’s have also been asked to identify places they recommend for visitors, as well as key arts organisations to contact for further information.

‘Home (Between 8 and 10pm)’ was an exhibition curated by MASS, that began by looking at aspects of taste and home-ownership. However, this was not about unfathomable DIY assembly packs from Sweden, nor Sir Terrance Conran’s call for cool austerity […]
In Spring 2000 I responded to an advert in [a-n] MAGAZINE for a solo exhibition at The Pearoom, Heckington. To my delight, I was selected and began to develop a new body of work. I love walking and decided to […]
In the June 2000 issue of [a-n] MAGAZINE, Birmingham Institute of Art and Design advertised the Wheatley Bequest Fine Art Fellowship in Painting.

A five-week photographic expedition to the USA in 1982 gave me the opportunity to travel to Miami, New York, Washington, Chicago and San Francisco.
My work spans many different media – from sculpture to performance.
Using sculpture and installation, much of my work deals with the reinterpretation and colonisation of space – both hidden and visible.

Art Gene, a new initiative with artists and performers at its core, is set to make a significant intervention into the life of Barrow-in-Furness, a town perhaps presently better-known for its industrial scope than for its arts scene. Thanks to […]

Window Sills is neither public art nor community art. It uses collaborative strategies that draw on and sit between a number of artistic practices taking its lead from ‘New Genre Public Art’ – a term used by American artist Suzanne Lacy – which incorporates activist arts, site-specific art, performance art and happenings. The project is also aligned to ideas about art and context developed in universities in the UK.

Former regionalist Nick Stewart has recanted his old ways and become seduced by the capital’s financial hub, producing a series of video observations that track a complex series of patterns within this urban environment. Careful editing of the recorded image can reveal the liminal, the unconscious, or indeed, the political, within the world of appearances. Time can be condensed or stretched as appropriate.
Brigid Howarth talks to recipients of the Clerkenwell Award showcased in the ‘Creative Collective’ exhibition. Run by Clerkenwell Green Association the scheme assists the start up of small creative businesses in a supportive environment.
