Venue: CBS Gallery
CBS Gallery & Studios would like to invite you to an
in-conversation between Nina Chua and Lauren Velvick this Thursday at 18:00.
Nina and Lauren will be discussing the work in 11:17 and expanding on, amongst other things, the issues that influence their practices and status as artists who also work in other fields, and their designation as ‘Northern Artists’.
Chua and Velvick lived in Manchester simultaneously for around 9 years but never met. In 2016 they were both selected to be Liverpool Biennial Associate Artists and in due course discovered similarities and meeting points between their attitudes towards being an artist and moving through the world. Chua has an MA in Fine Art from Manchester School of Art, graduating in 2011. This is her first solo exhibition. Velvick didn’t do an art degree and is sometimes designated an artist, sometimes a writer.
The discussion will last between 30-40 minutes then will be open for questions from the audience.
The event is free but we have limited space so make sure you to book a ticket:
