Crisis artists collaborating with artist mentors – Mary Bell, Firooze Tahriri, Jordan Vanderhyde, Katie Taylor, Sonia Boué and Penny Maltby, present an exhibition which explores a sense of ‘place’.
The artists have all investigated ideas of what the Old Fire Station means to them in terms of personal development and support. The work includes reference to elements of the unseen and forgotten within the building and also within themselves.
The work within the exhibition acts as a reminder for us to always look a little deeper.
Friday 16 November join us to celebrate the opening of the exhibition, as part of the Christmas Light Festival.
Our Place Workshop
Saturday 17 November, 12pm – 3pm
Crisis artists invite you to a drop-in workshop exploring the Our Place exhibition. Look at a place in a brand new way, and create your own piece of artwork using a variety of different techniques.
Free. Just drop in.
Memory Paintings Workshop
Saturday 1 December, 2pm – 4pm
Artist Katie Taylor’s own practice explores identity and memory often using textiles and historical reference as a starting point.
This simple workshop will allow you to create memory paintings of lace in ink. If you have your own lace sample that has particular memory attached to it bring it along. It will not be damaged but will be lightly sprayed with water.
Tickets: £10/£8. Click here.
Our Place is a project in partnership with Crisis. Supported by The Arts Society Oxford; The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust; National Lottery Awards For All; Oxford University Community Fund; Pye Charitable Settlement; Magdalen College Trust; Patricia Williams.
