Photo UCLAN lecturer and MA Course Leader, Brian J Morrison is producing a new exhibition in collaboration with Artist Emily Warner and contemporary art critic Jonathan P Watts as part of four week public art program, DOMINO in Norwich.
DOMINO is proposed as the first of a sequence of SAVORR led programmes that will launch a self-supporting network with other regional art scenes. Here, two artists from Birmingham, Brian J Morrison and Emily Warner, have been invited to create new work for the first floor of The Shoe Factory. Working in dialogue with contemporary art critic Jonathan P. Watts, the progression of the invited artists’ ideas will be documented and such material will be on display for visitor insight and discussion.
Resist, resist release, will see Brian and Emily work collaboratively to produce works informed by crossovers in their practice. Both Artists are interested in the body and its relationship to art and will develop a response to each other and the exhibition space.
As part of the exhibition Brian and Emily will be acting as judges for a film/moving image open call. To submit to this please follow the link below.
More information and documentation of the project will be updated on the SAVORR webspace during the production week.
