When Art is Not Enough: Activism for the Transgender Community
Programmed to take place alongside artist Dylan Fox‘s solo exhibition at NN Contemporary, this one-day symposium brings together artists and speakers from the transgender and queer community to explore ways in which activism can change society’s views on gender. Experimental choreographer Malik Nshad Sharpe, artist and performer Liv Wynter and Youtube activist Chase Ross will join Dylan Fox in sharing personal experiences and strategies.
Tuesday 10 April 2018, 10.30am-4pm, The Guildhall, 15 St Giles Street, Northampton

Artist Jenny Drinkwater reconstructs a landscape for this solo exhibition of paintings and mixed media works that play with how we view landscape – both rural and urban – and it’s constituent parts. The colourful semi-abstract works question what it is that we are seeing when we look at a landscape.
Until 13 April 2018, Printroom Bar & Cafe, The Storey, Meeting House Lane, Lancaster

The Embodied Experience of Drawing
Recognising that an increasing number of South West based artists have moved towards performative drawing practices, this one-day symposium aims to give momentum to this movement, gathering together practitioners to discuss these embodied approaches to drawing. Dr Janette Kerr has been invited to give the Keynote lecture and an exhibition of works by artists Marie Taylor and Beth Heaney will be on concurrently at the Ocean Studios gallery space.
Friday 13 April 2018, Ocean Studios, Royal William Yard, Plymouth

In the Space of Elsewhere
Artworks by Lu Mei and Sara Willett, accompanied by a soundscape by John Lunn, consider the phenomenology of the exhibition space. Considering space in terms of memory and imagination as well as the fixity of physical space, the two artists have also responded to the neo-classical architecture of the building, creating new site-specific pieces.
11-22 April 2018, Lewisham Arthouse, Project Space, 140 Lewisham Way, London SE14
