New Material discussion exploring the precarious conditions facing artists today and new networks for development, delivered in conversation with UK Syllabus II artists at A.P.T Gallery, Deptford


This forms part of the New Material programme of events aimed at exploring what characterises life and art in the new material world. The exhibition, curated by London based artist Tyler Mallison, seeks to address the shift in the ‘material world’ from the Gen-X perspective of the mid 1980s; a time of pensive self-awareness and anxiety, to our current new material world; one of 21st century post-truth Trumpist politics and Brexit Britain.

'New Networks: New Normal’ is aimed at exploring the conditions facing artists today: relationships organically forged via precarious channels of alternative education, artist-led initiatives, open formats, studio disruption and social media; and sparking discussion with other artists and the public about what characterises life and art in this new material world— specifically investigating different modes of artistic development in today's context.

The discussion will be delivered in conversation with artists from Syllabus II: a national selected peer-led artist development programme delivered in partnership by Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge; Eastside Projects, Birmingham; New Contemporaries; S1 Artspace, Sheffield; Spike Island, Bristol, and Studio Voltaire, London. 

This talk is particularly geared towards art students, artists and people involved in any form of education and social media.


Guest Artists: Faye Claridge, Mike Harvey, E Jackson, Tom Smith, Laura Wilson
