Event description
De’Anne Crooks discusses collaborative & collective experience, in a conversation initiated by Meadow Arts & University of Worcester.

About this Event

There is a brand new format for the sixth season of contemporary artists' talks, presented via a partnership between the University of Worcester’s Fine Art department and Meadow Arts. We're still working with some of the most exciting contemporary artists currently making work in the UK, who will be talking about their artwork, ideas and the processes they use, in online talks. Please book a place so that we can send you the link to join in on Zoom. talks are free, but you can support the work of our charity by choosing to make a donation.

As an artist-educator, much of De’Anne Crooks' practice considers the collaborative and collective experiences of others. Engaging their practice as a form of activism rather than a teacher of art, De’Anne’s relationship with pedagogy (the science and principles of teaching) and contemporary art has cultivated a strong sense of play with political, moral and emotional themes. During her fellowship with the Black Hole Club and her recent commissions for the Film and Video Umbrella, Vivid Projects and ReFramed network, De’Anne has been testing the practical side of contemporary art in relation to Blackness. Using video, performative and fine art, De’Anne continues to address cultural pedagogy with a focus on the verbal fluency of marginalised persons.

With an unapologetic and deliberate approach to both education and art, De’Anne continues to challenge the authenticity and inclusivity of her own artistic processes and the culture within British institutions. Now working with Iniva for The Contemporary Art Space Project, De’Anne intends to unearth the role of identity politics within schools, prioritising the voices of marginalised young people. Exploring what it means to take up space, cement a sense of belonging and use artistic tools to have pivotal conversations, De’Anne’s commitment to creating an energised learning environment is greatly anticipated.
