We are programming a series of Away Day visits both within the region and beyond to explore artist-led activity, to profile the work of artists based outside the capital and to create networking opportunities.

Our next visit is to the gallery and purpose-built artist-led studios Grand Union in the Minerva Works complex in Digbeth, Birmingham.

Grand Union’s Studios

Grand Union, Birmingham
Wednesday 11 October 2017
2-4pm

The visit will include an introduction to Grand Union’s current exhibition Susie Green: Pleasure is a Weapon by the curatorial team. This will also be a chance to find out more about the history, working model, recent expansion and future plans for Grand Union.

Discussions will be followed by an opportunity to visit the existing and brand new artist studios and to meet some of the practitioners based there. We will also pay a visit to Modern Clay, a studio facility for the production of ceramics run by artist Mark Essen which is based on site, finishing around 4pm.

Please meet at 2pm in Grand Union’s gallery. Refreshments will be provided.

Everyone is welcome. Attendees are expected to cover their own travel costs to and from the venue.

To reserve a free place, please contact Anneka French on info@newartwestmidlands.co.uk

Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and must be reserved no later than Tuesday 10 October.

Engine is the artist and curator professional development programme led by New Art West Midlands and The New Art Gallery Walsall.
