Artists Steve Pool and Kate Genever (Poly-Technic) who have been working together for ten years to create art that asks difficult questions and encourages debate. Recently they received Making Ways Open Call Project funding to allow them to work in residence in Venice, developing new work as part of their project ‘We are not and Island’. They would now like to share this work with you and invite you to hang out, make art, eat cake and save the world.
The project aims to connect Sheffield and Venice by asking the question: ‘What is Urgent?’ – inspired by John Ruskin , who in is own way tried to save both cities for the people who live there, they aim to bring people together to make, think and imagine.
How to get involved?
From the 29th April to the 4th May (except Wednesday 2nd) Steve and Kate will be resident in Access Space Labs 14-16 Fitzalan Square, Sheffield S1 2AZ
Free print workshop: Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th May / 1pm – 4pm.
To book email: Spsheff@aol.com
Join in the debate at an evening discussion – What is Urgent Now? from 6.30 on Thursday 3rd May
As a project finale, look out for projections of the work from both Sheffield and Venice on Friday 4th May in the city centre [at a venue to be confirmed].
