You are invited to join Elizabeth Murton in conversation with current recipients of the Birkbeck and Bow Arts residency award. This discussion will digest the recent and ongoing experiences of both the artist John Timberlake and the academic Dr Gabriel Koureas about their current collaborative exhibition at Peltz Gallery entitled Artist’s Impression: Mangled Metal.
Bow Arts and the Peltz Gallery at the Birkbeck School of Arts have joined forces to award the first Artist-in-Residence in the Peltz Gallery. The Residency, which we hope to expand in further years, connects artists with academics to create new work inspired by the interdisciplinary research produced within the School of the Arts. The aim of the Residency is to explore how artistic engagement with academic research might simultaneously develop reflective arts practices and advance academic thinking.
Exhibition Details:Artist’s Impression: Mangled Metal, a collaboration between artist John Timberlake and Dr Gabriel Koureas, Senior Lecturer in Visual and Material Culture, taking place at Peltz Gallery, 43 Gordon's Square, London, WC1H 0PD between 8 June and 14 August 2015.
