For the third event in the One Artist | One Work series, Winnie Herbstein will discuss the research and influences behind her work Minutes, the process of production and exhibition, and how these have informed her current research. Minutes (2019) draws on material from the archive of Take Root, a women’s self-build group from Glasgow in the 1990s. Working closely with minutes taken from the group’s meetings, moments were developed into scenarios and restaged by members of Slaghammers, a feminist welding group based at Glasgow Autonomous Space. Layering and sharing experiences of organising, this video was shown as part of the exhibition Brace, a solo show at Jupiter Woods, London.
A link to Minutes will be provided in advance of the event. The film is captioned.
Over the coming months LUX Scotland is holding a series of online events led by artists. Each fortnight a Scotland-based artist will present a recent work and talk through how the work came into being. They will be joined by one of the LUX Scotland team and up to 20 online participants.
How it works
Our online events will take place on Zoom. We will also use the chat space to post questions /comments being raised by the guest artist so they can be referred back to.
We ask that all participants are respectful and listen to the facilitators and other participants. An attendee list will be circulated to all participants in advance of each event. At the beginning of events we will introduce the guest artist and invite participants to briefly introduce themselves and their reason for joining. During the event discussion, we ask that one person speaks at a time and that you type ‘hi’ in the chat to indicate you want to contribute. A member of the LUX Scotland team will keep a track of who wishes to contribute and will direct the conversation to you. You may also wish to use the chat space to type your contribution, should this be preferable for you, and we ask that you follow the same protocol with this method. We ask that you keep your microphones on mute until you are going to speak to ensure everyone can hear clearly. We invite you to have your cameras on, where possible, as this maintains a feeling of being together in the space.
LUX Scotland is dedicated to providing a welcoming online environment for everyone, regardless of gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, or religion or belief. Participants who do not adhere to this code of conduct and the participation guidelines will be asked to leave the event.
We welcome feedback on how these online events have been organised and facilitated in order to improve them as we go forward, in acknowledgment that this is a learning curve and adjustment period for us all. An evaluation form will be circulated at the end of the event along with any references, links or materials brought up during the discussion.
A series of online events established in response to the first lockdown in March 2020. Focusing closely on a single work, these generous discussions provided an opportunity for an artist based in Scotland to present a recent work and talk through how the work came into being.
