Open Call: 'The Artist and the Institution' - Alice Myers

  • Access Space 3 - 7 Sidney Street Sheffield, England, S1 4RG United Kingdom (map)

Alice will be hosting a roundtable session for sharing, supporting and discussing work in progress around the theme of negotiating the role of the artist within institutions. Delegates are invited to bring projects to the table for discussion.

Alice has been developing participatory photography inside prisons, during which the following questions have arisen:

1. What role(s) can/should artists play within institutions?

2. How can the tensions and problems around agency, authorship and representation that arise when doing this work become a visible and integral part of the outcome?
