Jason Wilsher-Mills Artist TalkJoin artist Jason Wilsher-Mills for an artist led talk and tour of his Jason and his Argonauts in Love exhibition, part of the Summer of Love.
Jason Wilsher-Mills: Jason and his Argonauts in Love–Jason Wilsher-Mills uses iPads and Wacom tablets to create bright, celebratory and poignant works exploring themes of disability. His digital drawings are then translated into huge inflatable works or human-sized fibreglass sculptures. Colourful and bold, his works are acts of activism that are visually captivating and use their joyfulness to begin serious conversations.
Jordan McKenzie: Shame Chorus–The feelings that arise from being forced to conceal your sexuality are a theme of McKenzie’s audio work Shame Chorus (2017). The artist refers to American writer Brene´ Brown who says that shame: “needs three things to grow... secrecy, silence and judgment”. These ideas of shame and secrecy resonate with issues that affected Robert Indiana’s own life.
