London, United Kingdom
Jack J Hutchinson in conversation with Annabel Tilley (Zeitgeist Art Projects). Coinciding with the Madge Gill/Jack J Hutchinson exhibition Autography at the Nunnery Gallery, London.
This talk will explore the automatic, process-based nature of drawing. Both Hutchinson (resident artist at the Nunnery Gallery) and historically significant outsider artist, Madge Gill, have drawing at the centre of their practice. Hutchinson will discuss his new body of work, created in response to the Madge Gill collection at Newham Archives.
The talk will last approximately one hour and will also include an introduction to Gill's practice from Rosamond Murdoch, Director of the Nunnery Gallery. There will also be a cafe and bar serving food and drinks.
This is the second contemporary artist residency alongside the Madge Gill exhibitions which is a project conceived by Bow Arts and funded by the London Borough of Newham.
