IN: Blair Murphy
November 15

For our upcoming episode of the podcast IN, NLS talks with New York-based curator Blair Murphy about her recent curatorial project in the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program, an exhibition titled S/N (short for Signal-to-Noise Ratio). We will talk with Murphy about the dynamics of the audial and oral as they were incorporated within the S/N exhibition, as well as her curatorial history and future projects.

The podcast airs live on Sunday, November 15, at 7 p.m. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HPtA-7PPkk

ALICE YARD: Nicholas Laughlin + Camille Chedda
November 5

In this informal conversation hosted by NLS, Laughlin will discuss the history of Alice Yard, its ethos of self-determination and openness, and the fascinating problem of inventing a vocabulary to describe a phenomenon that is at once a physical location, a critical space, and a creative practice.

The talk is scheduled for Thursday, November 5, 2015 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. For more information contact 876-406-9771

Free and open to the public + complimentary refreshments.

PARTICIPATE IN OUR ONGOING STUDY


NLS began conducting research locally in 2012 a few months after we first opened, in order to gather direct data and gain better insight into what is needed to stimulate the local art scene. We started researching artists and their practices (which we are again doing). Now our research will incorporate the public's consumption of visual art and their perceptions of the visual arts.

If you are a practicing artist please participate in the Visual Artist survey.
If you are not an artist please participate in the Public Consumption of Visual Art survey.

Highlights from our 2012 study will be published on our website over the coming weeks.

MAY NOTHING STAY HIDDEN
MALAIKA BROOKS-SMITH-LOWE
January 24 - February 16


The work presented in this exhibition was created by Malaika Brooks-Smith-Lowe during her six week art residency at NLS. The artist used the residency programme to explore the impact of migration on family, with her grandfather’s childhood story as the starting point. Drawing from audio conversations and found photographic film of her grandfather, as well as salvaged furniture and other materials discovered as she explored his birthplace, Malaika Brooks-Smith-Lowe constructs an intimate portrait of the anxieties, fears and dreams which surround migration as well as a persistent hope for transcending these complex emotions. This residency project was sponsored in part by Three Sixty Degrees, True Self Centre of Being, Neil Willcox and individual private donors.
