Reading and conversation

Jacqui Shelton

21 November 2020
1.30–2.30pm

  • Event Cost:
    Free

Join Jacqui Shelton for a live reading via Zoom of Enlarge my coast, an essay commissioned by the IMA for Making Art Work.

Following the reading Jacqui will be joined by artist Kinly Grey for a discussion on the ways writing and reading can be embedded in or parallel to an art practice, touching on the sociality of reading and learning during the pandemic as a way of connecting with others; attempting to think beyond personal experience; and the potential in doing nothing in the context of productivity-obsessed contemporary life.
