As part of a Special Opportunity Award from the New Art West Midlands exhibitions, Katie Hodson, a recent graduate of University of Worcester, is currently undertaking a residency offered by Office for Art, Design and Technology.

Throughout the residency Katie has been developing a new and ambitious body of work which expands upon and continues her sculptural practice and interests in modernist built environments; in particular directly responding to the buildings, plazas and public spaces of Coventry.

On Monday 24 April, there will be an ‘In Conversation’ event with Katie at mac birmingham. The event will feature Katie presenting her research and work produced during the residency and will include a panel discussion exploring themes relevant to her practice which are as broad as modernist architecture, casting techniques, city centre re-developments and working in a site-specific context. Her work is also on display in New Art West Midlands at mac birmingham until 14 May 2017.

You can book your free ticket for the talk via the mac birmingham website here.
