Standpoint Futures Residency Programme
27 October 2011 12-6pm: presentation of work in progress
27 October 6.30-8pm Andrew Bracey in discussion with Peter Ashton Jones, artist and co-founding editor of the painting magazine Turps Banana
28 October: presentation of work in progress
Andrew Bracey is intrigued by how we understand and navigate painting. Exploring the medium through film, animation and sculpture, he often employs a historical context through incorporating found traditional imagery within his practice. Combined with this Bracey is interested in exploring the space in which we encounter and engage with painting, whilst challenging the expected normality of a gallery visit.
This special two-day presentation is part of Andrew Bracey's participation in Standpoint Futures Development Residencies designed specifically for artists based outside of London. The residency's chief aims are to provide high quality, individualized opportunities to develop an artists practice and career, as well as to integrate London and the Regional UK art world to promote dialogue and interchange. Please see residency blog to follow developments http://standpointfutures.tumblr.com/
