My City:My Art

On March 1st, we held an event to link artists in the twin cities and to start a dialogue exploring how the cities in which we live and work affect our artistic practice. Making use of the (mostly working) internet, we shared presentations by 8 artists (4 in each city) and mini video pitches by another 8 artists – and then afterwards had a conversation to identify ways in which we might collaborate or take forward this new connection.

We hooked up with Pecha Kucha Coventry to present the event, and so the 8 presentations were done within the Pecha Kucha format – which entails talking about each of your 20 images for just 20 seconds, resulting in a fast-paced 6m40s presentation!

The presentations by the 4 Coventry artists: Jane Hytch, Matthew Macaulay, Rachelle Viader Knowles and Oliver Scott are now online, and you can view them here.
