With mima’s help we have selected a range of local businesses, industries and educators to get involved in an exciting new mima adventure.
My award comprises an artist residency culminating in a commission in the public realm. At mima this will be in response to Middlesbrough, local people, communities and industry. The work will take pride of place in mima’s garden as a semi-permanent sculpture, incorporating sound and forming part of mima’s collection.
To begin the project we are hosting a special event this week, a drink reception followed by an introduction of my work. I will discuss my practice and opportunities to welcome everyone and they organisation and invite them to get involved with the project. I will offer a numerous exciting opportunities to follow for people to be part of, including workshops, artist talks and one off bespoke sessions in mima and/or their place of work.
The end of this week I very much looking forward to meting with the Mayor of Middlesbrough.
