IdeasFromElse[W]here is an Arts Laboratory project led by the drawing shed lead artists Sally Labern and Bobby Lloyd and co-curated by artist Jordan McKenzie. From the project base in Winns Gallery E17 (and throughout Lloyd Park), from June 16 – July 13 2014, artists and members of the public will came together to collectively engage in art-making and the sharing and exploration of creative ideas. Opening up, demystifying and extending the processes of devising, making and presenting art, this ‘festival of ideas’ incorporated live art performance, film, dance, live writing, text, sculpture, sound, and new media, with provocations and responses from artists and public participation continually informing and evolving the project. This blog is an extension of the physical project space, with different artists contributing, developing, and reconfiguring the content.
