This year we will introduce an 'in conversation' with Louise Colbourne meeting:
Viv Albertine, Claudia Barton and Christiana Yeo-Clarey.
Viv Albertine was the guitarist in the hugely influential all-female punk band, the Slits. More recently her book Clothes, Music, Boys has won much acclaim for its frank and intimate account of her life.
Christiana Yeo-Clarey is a performance artist who weaves together notions of motherhood, feminine identity and the wilderness within her part performance/part discussion installations.
Claudia Barton is a torch singer and lyricist and is an associate artist with the performance duo Curious who conduct edgy, humorous interrogations of contemporary culture and politics.
An intimate discussion between these three influential female artists will be based on the ideas that inform their work, the effect of motherhood on their creative output and future projects…
The actions, performances and writings of these three artists, although often intimate in nature, all move towards activism and protest. Their voice, in very different ways, expresses an honest account with a female sensibility that looks towards revolution.
