Join the 2016 Platform artists as they share the initial ideas that will shape their residencies: from live performance and dance in the gallery to bread baking and survivalist techniques.

About

Platform is a nationally unique development programme, which gives our galleries over to an artist, or group of artists, to make new work in public. Following the exciting Platform residency projects developed in 2014/15, applicants from across the UK were invited to propose an idea for which they need time, space and investment to develop to proof of concept stage.

A panel, including curators and young people from our Society of Explorers, selected 6 artists to develop 4 new projects in 2016. The selection criteria can be summed up as ‘why make this work in public?’

This Platform Study Day will encourage discussion and debate, exploring the thoughts, dreams and concepts of the following artists:

Lucy Beech & Edward Thomasson
Beatriz Olabarrieta
Laura Wilson
Anna Chrystal Stephens & Glen Stoker

Joining them at this event will be a group of Platform alumni, members of the selection panel and Site Gallery’s curatorial team.

The event will explore the strange and wonderful place between private practice and public participation that emerges from each Platform residency: what is the benefit of going behind the scenes and giving access not only to the end product, but also to the creative process? How can the work benefit from the insights and enthusiasms of Site Gallery’s audiences?
