Various meeting times available
We offer free, informal and supportive advice sessions for artists – in February, these online meetings (up to one hour in length) will be held by artist Jamie Crewe and aim to develop a wide-ranging dialogue around your practice. Meetings are to support artists working with the moving image who are based in Scotland and are no longer in full-time education.
Sessions can involve any or all of the following areas;
– advice on: developing your practice /networks and self-promotion /funding and budget writing /production and project planning
– talking over some possible ‘next steps’ for your project, including advice on exhibition possibilities and thinking about appropriate organisations to research
– looking at and discussing your work and the direction it is taking
If you have recently had an advice session please don’t book another session for 12 months (This ’12‑month interval’ between sessions is to allow us to support everyone we can).
Once you have booked via Eventbrite we will email you directly to arrange either a video or phone call for the meeting, whichever suits you best. If you want to share work or any texts (e.g proposals, funding applications) with us then we are happy to look at these with you during the meeting itself.
After your meeting we’ll ask you to complete a short, anonymous feedback form so we can monitor how useful the sessions are.
Image description: A photograph that documents a solo show ‘Pastoral Drama’ by Jamie Crewe that was held at Tramway, Glasgow in 2018. Two parallel videos are suspended from the gallery ceiling and each present a close up of a different figure’s head, modelled from clay or plasticine. The gallery walls are painted a warm mustard colour.
Jamie Crewe is a beautiful bronze figure with a polished cocotte’s head. They make artworks with video, text, installation, sculpture, drawing, painting, and more. These works think about constriction: the way people are formed by their cultures, environments and relationships, and the things that herniate from them as a consequence.
Jamie’s solo exhibitions include ‘Ashley’ at LUX Moving Image, London (2020); ‘Solidarity & Love’ at Humber Street Gallery, Hull (2020); ‘Love & Solidarity’ at Grand Union, Birmingham (2020); ‘Pastoral Drama’ at Tramway, Glasgow (2018); ‘Female Executioner’ at Gasworks, London (2017); and ‘But what was most awful was a girl who was singing at Transmission’, Glasgow (2016). Her work has been presented in ‘British Art Show 9’ at Wolverhampton School of Art (2022); ‘I, I, I, I, I, I, I’; ‘Kathy Acker’ at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (2019) and ‘KW Production Series’ at Julia Stoschek Collection, Berlin (2018).
Jamie recently directed ‘A Luxury’ (2021), a short film responding to Shola Von Reinhold’s novel ‘LOTE’ (2020), and contributed six drawings to ‘The Moon Spins The Dead Prison: An Anthology of Abolition’ (2022), a publication by The School of Abolition. In April 2022 they released ‘False Wife’ (2022), a website and video commissioned by the University of Edinburgh Art Collection and Dr Chloë Kennedy of Edinburgh Law School, which received the EMAF Award for groundbreaking work in media art at the 35th European Media Arts Festival in Osnabrück, Germany. She received the Margaret Tait Award in 2019, a Turner Bursary in 2020, and was shortlisted for the Jarman Award in 2022.
