Practising Place: conversations about art and place
In Certain Places has published a new article on the blog that outlines the whole Practising Place programme, presenting synopses and links to films of each event.
Practising Place was a programme of ten public conversations designed to examine the relationship between art practice and place. Each event explored a specific aspect of place by bringing artists together with humanities researchers who shared a common area of interest. The artist/researcher pairs focused on topics relating to their own work, including perceptions of the rural, language, nostalgia, typography, urban spaces, renewal and urban noise.
The events took place between 2013 and 2016, with each one hosted at a different venue in the north of England.
The artists and researchers formed solid partnerships that lasted beyond the events, leading to continued dialogue and collaborations. They were commissioned to write essays that continued these discussions, which were published on online arts magazine The Double Negative and will be presented together in an e-journal.
All the Practising Place events were filmed and are available to watch on the In Certain Place website.
What’s next for Practising Place?
In Certain Places is currently working on a Practising Place publication featuring contributions from each of the ten pairs in different written and visual forms. Look out for the e-journal of Practising Place essays later this year.
