Description

AirSpace Curriculum - The Artists' Talks

John Newling

14th March, 2019 12:15-1:15

Film Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 2EF

John Newling was born in Birmingham in 1952 and has an acclaimed international reputation creating projects and installing works in the UK and many other countries.

Nottingham-based, John Newling is a pioneer of public art with a social purpose. His works explore the natural world and the social and economic systems of society – such as money or religion. To this end Newling has innovated the possibilities and benefits for art in a renewed social and conceptual framework.

He belongs to a generation of artists whose work evolved from Conceptual Art, Land Art and Arte Povera – art movements occurring during the 1960s that placed emphasis on the concept, process and site of the work, alongside material and aesthetic properties.




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
