Nina Edge: Curtains for the Welsh Streets

  • Wed, 21 Sep 2016
  • 7.00 PM - 9.00 PM
  • Tickets: £3/£2

Curtains for the Welsh Streets is an artist’s talk by Nina Edge reflecting back on her 2006 Independents Biennial artwork Nothing is Private and her current practice, which sees her revising this work ten years on.

Nina Edge trained as a ceramicist and became known for subversive use of craft processes in shows with Black British artists in the 1980s. Her practice is socially engaged and she has undertaken many longstanding collaborations with communities. Productions include bilingual advertising hoardings, radical textiles and sculptures made from money. Her Welsh Streets projects has become a long investigation into demolitions and the effects of forced removals on communities. 

The artist will be joined in conversation by Bluecoat's Artistic Director Bryan Biggs.

Edge has been published by Third Text, International Journal of Art & Design Education, Feminist Art News & LUP. Exhibitions include Virtual Duality (Bluecoat, 1994), Mirage (ICA, 1995) Transforming the Crown (Studio Museum in Harlem, 1997) The Fifth Floor (Tate Liverpool, 2008), Turning FACT Inside Out (FACT, 2013) Live work includes Sold Down the River (Bluecoat Liverpool,1995) and Habeas Corpus (Albert Dock, 2007)  

She is currently showing work about housing clearances as part of a long investigation into demolition and forced removals (Welsh Streets 2004 – 2016) and  teaching a short course about how art and society are meshed at Tate Liverpool.
