Event description
Join us for contemporary artist Jamie Crewe's talk: FOUR TECHNIQUES FOR JAMIE CREWE

About this Event

For the final event in the "Intermediality" Graduate Research Seminars organised by the Department of History of Art, University of Cambridge, contemporary artist Jamie Crewe will be discussing creative techniques demonstrated in their recent practice. Observed across many different works, these techniques thread through their practice, appearing repeatedly as intellectual, practical, processual, or instinctual gestures, consciously or unconsciously applied. Jamie will reflect on these techniques as a way to read their work in a non-chronological way, trying to practice sensitivity to recurrence, to the folding together of thought and action, and to the gaps in between.

Jamie Crewe was born in Manchester and raised in the Peak District, and they now live and work in Glasgow.

They have presented several solo exhibitions: Love & Solidarity (Grand Union, Birmingham, 2020); Solidarity & Love (Humber Street Gallery, Hull, 2020); But what was most awful was a girl who was singing (Transmission, Glasgow, 2016); Female Executioner (Gasworks, London, 2017); and Pastoral Drama (Tramway, Glasgow, 2018). They have also participated in several group exhibitions, including: STILL I RISE: FEMINISMS, GENDER, RESISTANCE ACT 2 (De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill On Sea, 2019) and ACT 3 (Arnolfini, Bristol, 2019); I, I, I, I, I, I, I Kathy Acker (Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, 2019); and Cellular World (Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow, 2018). Jamie has also presented two performance lectures: Potash Lesson (2016) in several locations in the UK and Europe and PEOPLE HAVE COME (LUX Online, 2020). Their book GLAIRE was published in 2017 by Ma Bibliothéque.

In 2019, they were awarded the Margaret Tait Award, Scotland’s most prestigious prize for artists’ moving image. The resulting work — a rural horror film titled Ashley — was premiered at Glasgow Film Festival in 2020. In 2020, they were awarded the Turner Bursary on the basis of their sister exhibitions at Humber Street Gallery, Hull, and Grand Union, Birmingham. In 2021/22 they will be part of the British Art Show 9.
