Thanks Diversity Matters, nearly one week on, and I have made lots of new connections through Shades of Noir. Looking forward to working with you all in the future
Another fantastic event Feminisms - Arts of a Woman by Shades of Noir yesterday a tChelsea College of Arts! The dynamic panel including Michelle Williams Gamaker and Dana Jade gave us lots of food for thought!...
I'll be on this panel today at Chelsea College of Art and Design: Please come and join, the event is free.
How does creative practice and education value the narratives of the nuances of feminisms?
‘Much contemporary debate has posed the question of the relation between race and gender, in terms that attempt to parallel race and gender divisions. It can be argued that as processes, racism and sexism are similar. Ideologically for example, they both con- struct common sense through reference to "natural" and "biological" differences.’

This day-long Film London-organised seminar at the Wellcome Collection is focused on artists making feature films, but also discusses the production of moving image work for gallery contexts. It is particularly useful for artists making long-form video work or anyone with an interest in the intersection between fine art and cinema.
It's almost sold out, so book soon if you're interested. I will be discussing my feature film project Violet Culbo.
Seminar Event: Artists Making Features
When: Wednesday 9 March, from 9.30am-5pm
Where: The Wellcome Centre, Wellcome Trust, 215 Euston Road, NW1 2BE
Booking: Tickets for the event are priced at £12 and available via eventbrite.
Please join me on Sunday 6th Dec at 2pm to watch my new video: Elephant Boy being filmed live at the Agency. This is the second instalment of my live work for The Making, featuring Krishna Istha as Sabu.
I will be working alongside Almuth Anders and Rachel Ashton to film the introduction to Zoltan Korda and Robert Flaherty's 1937 film Elephant Boy. Following the shoot, Brigitte Stepputis and myself will reveal aspects of our working processes in discussion with Bea de Souza.
My new work will be in a group show "The Making" at the Agency on Tuesday November 17th (PV) until 16th January:
One of the most underrated elements of art is the process of making work. And even today, when we can safely assume a fairly level playing field for men and women in the arts, experimentation and techno-conceptual approaches are often instinctively attributed to male artists first. The forthcoming exhibition at the Agency brings together eight contemporary women artists from very different disciplines, who present a part of their process to the viewing public, to give a rare glimpse in how a work is made, reflected upon and in some cases changes meaning in different contexts.
