Artists, curators, lecturers and practitioners across Tyne & Wear gather together for discussing mechanisms of group work in the arts and their importance especially for artists at the beginning of career.
Into The Gravy originates as a follow-up to a research conducted by curator Gabriella Arrigoni for Newcastle University and focused on the condition of emerging artists. Bringing Tyne & Wear as a case study, the essay investigates the transition between Fine Art education and the professional environment, describing the regional art community as a sort of open but circumscribed ecosystem.
The event is intended as an opportunity to present and discuss the main findings of this research, but also as a platform to develop a further debate on some of its crucial subjects. Artists, curators, creative practitioners and the audience are invited to question and rethink roles and models of art education, as well as on self-organising, diy approach in collaborative practices within the art world.
