Are you looking to find a clearer focus and/or a renewed artistic ambition for your work?
We all know that making art can be a solitary pursuit. Developing concepts can take place in solitude. This can make it very difficult for an artist to gauge if they are on the right track in their work. VAI’s Peer Crit is intended to assist your progress as an artist. It is an opportunity to learn more about your work, your artistic practice, and yourself.
Following a presentation on her current body of work and some of the exhibitions and projects that she has delivered Lucy Newman Cleeve will then guide the group and examine and interpret the work with care. Each participant will be asked to give a brief presentation on their work or a particular area that they wish to address. Following this, the group will then discuss the work covered and through constructive conversation reflect back realities that the artist may not see for themselves.
Lucy Newman Cleeve is a curator and consultant with 20 years experience across the visual arts and cultural sector working with organizations including Tate Britain, British Council, a-n The Artists’ Information Company, Arts Council England, Creative & Cultural Skills and the Department of Culture Media and Sport.
She was the founding director of Man&Eve Gallery (2006-14), where she represented a portfolio of emerging and established artists through a changing exhibition programme, publications, commissions and participation in international art fairs across Europe, Asia and North America. In recent years, her work has become more exclusively focused around her curatorial and research practice. She has a Theology Degree from Cambridge University and a Masters Degree from the Royal College of Art and is interested in work that combines and references both of these disciplines.
