Jyll Bradley and Eliza Gluckman In Conversation (May 2017)
Monday 12th June 2017, 6.30pm
Anglia Ruskin University, Coslett Building, Room Cos124
To mark the occasion of the siting of a new public art commission for the Tamburlaine Hotel, on Station Road, Cambridge, artist Jyll Bradley will be in conversation with curator Eliza Gluckman.
Jyll and Eliza will be talking about Jyll’s public art commission, the ideas behind the work, and how it relates to her wider practice. They will also discuss women in public art and how her work responds to ideas of identity and place.
There is also an opportunity before the talk to see The Bees Knees, CAS 2017 Degree Show, in The Ruskin Gallery from 5.30pm.
This is a public event and is free to attend, organised in partnership by Aid & Abet and Cambridge School of Art.
Jyll Bradley’s installations, drawings, and light box works express a deeply personal engagement with identity and place. Light is an important protagonist in her practice, and she talks of using it to ”bring things into the present”. Bradley’s work increasingly engages with architecture, site and community. Through unlikely pairings of materials and traditions, her installations invite reflection upon dualities at the core of self and modern life.
Eliza Gluckman is Curator of the New Hall Art Collection at Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge, and A Woman’s Place Project (Day+Gluckman). She has an MA in Fine Art (University of Edinburgh) and Curating Contemporary Art (Royal College of Art), working in diverse arts environments over the past 15 years. As part of independent curatorial partnership Day+Gluckman, she programmed a central London gallery for 8 years and initiated and curated Sinopticon, in collaboration with the V&A and National Trust looking at contemporary art and chinoiserie. She is a trustee for Block 336, an artist-run space in Brixton, South London.
This event is supported by Tamburlaine, part of O’Callaghan Hotel and Cambridge School of Art
