The week will bring a series of talks, events, workshops and performances arranged and facilitated by the artist at the gallery and brought together under the title How Much Art They Paying You?
The residency is directed explicitly and specifically towards other artists and the wider community who are working class, queer, who identify as female, non-binary and PoC, and who are frustrated at the “lack of funding for radical art practice”, among other things that Wynter notes as a form of “direct retaliation” in the capitalised press release.
All performers will be paid and all workshops are free.
Of specific note is the artist talk Wynter will be giving on July 5 where she will be discussing her personal practice as well as her involvement with the recent campaign, movement and activist group, WHEREISANAMENDIETA, who have recently protested in London over the exclusion of women of colour within art history.
