Artists are invited to give lectures based on their experiences of the art world – whether that’s in the form of a love letter to your nan, the complexities of pricing up meal deals at Tesco during your degree, or your aversion to eggs. Attend these lectures to discover how to finesse the system – from one marginalised person to another.
These lectures platform marginalised artists, allowing them to have the space to talk about their experiences navigating different situations in the art world.
This reiteration of DWISAP, funded by Motion Sickness, is delivered by creator Ellie Harman Taylor (Whinegums). London based multidisciplinary artist Ellie Harman-Taylor (also making work under the name Whinegums) who is also part of Babeworld, graduated from Central Saint Martins with a BA in Fine Art and has since worked with the likes of Schuh, The ICA and has exhibited around the UK and Europe. Harman-Taylor’s practice explores the world as a neurodivergent disabled person in today’s society and opens up her brain to connect with others in her community and also to shine a light on neurodiversity within the arts and how fine art, comedy and community can all intertwine. Alongside her artistic practice she founded the ‘Don’t Worry I’m Sick and Poor’ lecture series in collaboration with Babeworld, originally held at the Royal College of Art and has since also been developed with the ICA. Tickets are free, and the presentation will be 30 minutes in length, with 10 minutes at the end for questions.
