Members of the public are being sought for a new project coming up at Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts
, Brighton as part of a collaboration with artist Amartey Golding
, who is bringing an exhibition - Bring me to Heal
- to the art centre from 17-27 November.
The artist's largest work to date, the show combines filmmaking, photography and a handcrafted garment to highlight generational trauma in Britain and offer collective rituals of healing.
Made to accompany the exhibition, Is It Crap? will be an entertaining and insightful series available both online and in the gallery space that aims to flip art criticism on its head by asking everyday non art going Brits...Is It Crap? (Think Gogglebox and What Do Artists Do All Day?)
Laura McDermott, Creative Director, Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts said:
"We're after enthusiastic, opinionated people to be filmed reacting to contemporary art from the comfort of their own living rooms.
"We want honest, 'no holds barred' reactions and opinions. We need groups from the same household or friends and no art education preferable."
How to Apply:
All participants need to live in or around Brighton and have access to a laptop or tablet as this project will take place digitally.
To apply please send your name, email address and mobile number
to Jenny at email@example.com
with "Application to Is It Crap?"
in the title.
You will then be sent an email with a video to film yourselves answering/reacting to (camera phone, laptop or tablet).
