Dialogues 5 : Artist Retreat
Dialogues 5 was a project providing tailored critique and mentoring for five visual artists.
Selected from a national open call application process, Mark Devereux Projects worked with Shaun C Badham, Holly Davey, Hannah Leighton-Boyce, Hollie Miller and Amy & Oliver Thomas-Irvine across the duration of the project.
Dialogues 5 consisted of three core stages:
Creative retreat at Clayhill Arts, Somerset
The five selected artists spent four days dissecting, questioning and enhancing their artist voices through critical conversation and collaborative learning led by the Mark Devereux Projects team.
June – December 2018
Following the retreat, each artist was carefully matched with specialist curatorial mentor actively working within the sector, receiving one 3-hour studio visit and one 1-hour Skype follow-up session.
Curatorial mentors included; Fiona Bradley (Director, Fruitmarket Gallery), Katie Hickman (Curator, BALTIC), David Kefford & Sarah Evans (Aid & Abet), Claire Mander (Director, theCoLAB) and Nathaniel Pitt (Director, Division of Labour).
Dialogues 5 at The NewBridge Project: Gateshead
The project culminated in a group exhibition at The NewBridge Project: Gateshead featuring new and experimental work by the artists.
