New Art West Midlands and The National Trust warmly invite you to:

Residence & Research
Wednesday 20 February 2019, 2-6pm.
The Lab, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Birmingham City University, 200 Jennens Road, Birmingham. B4 7XR

During the Summer of 2018, five artists undertook research residencies with National Trust places across the Midlands, developing new ideas and perspectives in response to the sites – their architecture, the landscape, stories and atmosphere. Reflecting on the outcomes of these five artist residencies, this event explores the value of artist-led research in the context of the heritage site, and the development of future projects.

As well as the five artists – Larissa Shaw, Lindy Brett, Aileen Doherty, Theo Ellison and Grace Williams, joining Dr Catherine Baker on the panel are Emalee Beddoes-Davis, Curator Modern and Contemporary Art, Birmingham Museums Trust; Hetain Patel, Artist and Eira Szadurski, National Trust Creative Producer – Outdoors.

To attend, please RSVP by Wednesday 13 February to Helen Robinson –
