A Discussion on Hierachy and Influence, with The Workers

Lucy Clout, Susan Collis, Aileen Harvey and Caitlin Hinshelwood join Standpoint curator Fiona MacDonald for a discussion around their experiences and interpretations of the overt and covert manifestations of hierarchy in the artworld.

The artists will also discuss how their individual working practices have been challenged, altered and enriched by each other, through their years of interactivity as studio assistants in Susan Collis’ studio. Notably, Collins’ studio is a female dominated environment. We will also ask – what difference does this make?

‘The Workers’ interleaves works by five artists who have been Susan Collis’s long-term studio assistants, together with a new drawing installation by Collis. In acknowledging these relationships, the exhibition makes visible an obscured economy of manufacture, informal training and subsumed creativity. It values the unvalued, choosing to celebrate lines of mutual support, cross-pollination and resonance.

The talk is free to attend with no booking neccessary.
