Threads are pleased to present our next Micro-Residency at Ideas Test, Sittingbourne,17th October
Four artists will be occupying Ideas Test for a 1 day Micro Residency to create, explore and develop their practice. You are invited to come throughout the day (10:00 - 17:00) to see how the work is progressing and talk to the artist about their work.
To finish the residency we will hold an open critique (18:00 - 19:30). Threads invite artists/creatives to come with works, work in progress or ideas to discuss in a peer-to-peer format. The residency artists will be asked to discuss the work they have been exploring during the day with the group. Other crit attendees will also have an opportunity to discuss the work they have brought. Attendees are not required to bring their own work along to the critique and will contribute to the conversation.
It is the choice of the artist presenting their work to either lead with a brief introduction to the work presented/their overall practice, this may include highlighting a specific area of the overall practise where development is needed or further exploration is required. Alternatively, the discussion can be lead from the attendees, with no initial introduction from the Artist. If you have a preferred format as we approach the critique please let us know and we will facilitate this.
