AirSpace Curriculum - The Artists' Talks

Jenny Steele

21st March, 2019 12:15-1:15

Film Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 2EF

Jenny Steele is a Scottish artist currently based in Manchester, UK. Her work references 20th Century architecture, most recently coastal mid war architecture and design. She is interested in the permanence of architecture, and in particular how mid war design embodied utopic hope for the future. She seeks to revive its positive restorative qualities through her practice that encompasses printmaking, sculpture, drawing, textiles and site-specific artwork.

Recent solo exhibitions include; Why be exotic in private?, The Foundry Gallery, London (2018), This Building for Hope, The Midland Morecambe (2017), Too Much is Never Enough, The Breakwater, Miami, USA, This House for Building residency and exhibition at The Tetley, Leeds (2017) and An Architecture of Joy, Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool (2016). Recent commissions and residencies include The Fountainhead Residency (2017), AA2A Residency at UcLan (2017), Grundy Art Gallery Courtyard Commission (2016), Finding Treblinka for Staffordshire University exhibited at Treblinka Museum, Poland and Wiener Library, UK (2015) and Following the Market Square with Harris Museum and Art Gallery and In Certain Places, Preston (2012).




AirSpace Curriculum is a programme of events, talks and workshops organised by AirSpace Gallery in partnership with Staffordshire University which recognises and responds to the need for continuing professional development for artists in Stoke-on-Trent and the West Midlands.

The first part of the Curriculum offer is a series of artists’ talks, organised by Staffordshire University and usually available solely to students on their Fine Art BA Course, but now being opened up for any interested artists and members of the public to attend. This offer will be augmented by additional artist talks at AirSpace Gallery.

The programme offers an insight into the professional practices of a number of interesting and varied professional artists and arts practitioners.

Please note - For talks held at Staffordshire University, booking is essential for non-University staff/students. For booking information please visit the Curriculum page at www.airspacegallery.org
