Artist in Time

Thursday 03 October 6- 8pm

Cubitt Gallery

Join writer and critic Chris Fite- Wassilak and artist Anne Tallentire to discuss the shifting rhythms and patterns of artistic practice. Fite-Wassilak is the author of the forthcoming publication the Artist in Time (Bloomsbury, 2020), which features visual artists, filmmakers, musicians, dancers and writers from across the UK, including Tallentire alongside Frank Bowling, Wendy Cope, Ken Loach, Ralph Steadman and others. Through studio visits and interviews Fite-Wassilak has recorded artists’ personal experience of how the act of creating shifts and develops over time, discussing their evolving relationship to making including everyday rituals, pace, aspiration and inspiration. The Artist in Time was commissioned by the Baring Foundation as part of a decade-long programme supporting older people and the arts.

Anne Tallentire is a London-based artist working with moving image, sculpture, installation, performance and photography, exploring the systems that control the built environment, affect displacement and shape the economics of labour. recent solo exhibitions include the Grazer Kunstverein, Austria, 2018, and a forthcoming exhibition at the MAC, Belfast, in August 2020.

Tallentire and Fite-Wassilak have collaborated extensively, co-organsing the quarterly event ‘hmn’.
