Main Gallery Exhibition: Intuitive Drawing Clive King Workshop


All work created will be on display in the Main gallery from August 28, 2017- October 27, 2017

This type of workshop isn’t an end itself but it is generally an opening up process and does allow the person engaged to consider option/directions and media connections that might not have been apparent before. Drawing is the engine that drives the workshop but many of the works turn into paintings, collages or even 3 D constructions.

Although the groups are mainly fine art students, many graphic design, architect, time based media and photography students have found the experience highly worthwhile. The workshop works well on the BA, BFA and MFA levels or a mixture of all levels.

“Social Practice Art: Brown Bag Talks” featuring Mel Day

Friday, March 3 a webcast live at 12pm

Mel Day is an interdisciplinary artist working across a range of media including video, photography, experimental design, participatory and new media projects. Her works typically have multiple iterations as they evolve across multiple years. She is known for her video installations in which the role of doubt and the unknown complicate and illuminate our ideas of truth. Through recent hybrid media work, as revealed through state-of-the art turbulence simulations and collaborations with computational scientist Frank Ham, Day explores the unstable and ungraspable edge of visual intelligibility, the technologically sublime structure of chaos. In the multi-channel video and audio installation Doxology, she shares footage of her family humming the same hymn at decade-long intervals. Since 2010, Day has been generating layered versions of an experimental group study guide that investigates the instability of belief systems of all kinds. The Study Guide invites the viewer to draw on their own experiences and lays groundwork for dialogue among potentially insular groups.

Keen to ensure the future of the piano trio, The Fidelio Trio work closely with composition and performance students at institutions across the UK and all over the world including the Peabody Conservatory, Curtis Institute, Stellenbosch Conservatorium and WITS Johannesburg and have been artists-in-residence at St. Patrick’s College Dublin City University, University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, and the State University of New York, SUNY.

They are constantly commissioning new works, giving first performances and, importantly, further performances to introduce them into the repertory. Composers that the Trio has worked closely with include Toshio Hosokawa, Charles Wuorinen, Johannes Maria Staud, Michael Nyman, Gerald Barry, Donnacha Dennehy, Evan Ziporyn, Simon Bainbridge, Judith Weir … to name but few.
