Turf's lunchtime crits give artists a chance to get free feedback on their work from a practicing artist in a supportive and friendly environment.

About

Calling all artists, art students, performers and graduates alike!

Taking place every last Saturday of the month, our lunchtime crits give artists a chance to get feedback on their work from a practicing artist in a supportive and friendly environment. June’s crit will be led by Artistic Director of Tempting Failure, Thomas John Bacon. This crit has a particular focus on performance from our host, but all forms of work are welcomed for discussion.

Email us your images beforehand at at info@turf-projects.com along with any additional requirements if you’d like us to get images up full scale on our projector!

Participation isn’t mandatory – you’re welcome to simply come and view the works and take part in the discussions.

// ABOUT THOMAS JOHN BACON

Thomas John Bacon is an artist whose work focuses upon the conception of the body, Being and the idea of a multiplicity of Self/s in performance. He is also the Artistic Director of Tempting Failure, a festival of international performance art.

His work can be located within the framework of performance art and philosophical / phenomenological investigations that look to de/construct and challenge perception, alongside the assumed liminal barriers of body-based art.

He is known for creating artworks that capture an altered space, environment, or period of time that regardless of scale, will often make intense, sometimes visceral, beautiful pieces that place the body in extremis.

Thomas John Bacon has recently returned to his hometown of Croydon. He has been exhibiting his work since 2001 and internationally since 2009 particularly through Europe and East coast USA.
