Across May and June, both Holly Graham and Emily Hesse were in residence at Art Licks’ new space on the North York Moors in Bransdale. Both artists were invited to approach this as a research residency: an opportunity to explore the history of the Moors and find points of interest for their practice.
Alongside the residencies, Holly Willats has also been researching the history of the area, and begun to make partnerships and community connections.
We invite you to sit with us over a cup of coffee from your sofa, to discuss Holly and Emily’s research and their experience of spending time on the Moors. Each artist will give a brief introduction to their research, followed by questions from the audience.
Tuesday 13 July, 10.30am (45 minutes)
Please RSVP for a zoom invite to: info[art]artlicks.com with ‘Coffee chats’ as the subject line.
This activity is part of a current period of Research & Development for Art Licks, funded by Arts Council England. The artist residencies and Holly Willats’ research is the starting point for a long-term Art Licks project that will explore how contemporary visual art practice can unearth and reignite the histories of the Yorkshire Moors and its coastline, working with local communities to share in this.
Since the start of 2021, Art Licks has expanded to work across both London and the North York Moors, Bransdale. Read more on this, and another upcoming project, Together Apart | The Photobook Project.
