Event description

Description

Artist Eric MacLennan will be touring this piece of participative performance art around the UK in 2019 and is coming to Mayfield on the day of the Mayfair. Co-commissioned by the Turner Gallery in Margate, this project invites the public to engage in setting the world record for a painting that has been created by the largest number of artists.

Each artist (audience member) also makes a Cyanotype portrait which will be exhibited as a mirror image to the final painting - A Sea of Faces - embracing Turner’s pioneering interest in photography and his desire to find new ways to embrace art.

The Open Air Drawing-Room ... begins with an antiquated artists drawing group setting up for some landscape painting. Arrival and un- packing of folding stools, easels, flasks, other knick-knacks and sandwiches etc But this is no ordinary show - for the audience will be drawn into the group...

Co commissioned with Applause Rural Touring and Turner Contemporary, Margate who will host the Turner prize in October 2019.
