An Artist’s Talk by Jason Wilsher-Mills

ARTLINK, 87 Princes Avenue, Hull, Hull, HU5 3QP

10 Mar 2018

Artist Jason Wilsher-Mills will be presenting a talk about the work created during his Square Peg Residency with Artlink Hull during UK City of Culture 2017.

The residency was an opportunity for an artist who identifies as disabled to work with Artlink throughout the year, responding to the Square Peg programme and Hull in general. Jason’s approach, inspired by his long history of working with communities, was to engage a wide range of different people in Hull in a series of workshops, to enable them to tell their own stories through art. This in turn has influenced the creation of his own work for the exhibition.

He will discuss the new collection of multi-media work on view in the gallery. You can learn about his characters such as ‘East Hull Elvis’, ‘The X-Factor Princess’, and ‘Mario Lanza and the Stolen Hedge Trimmer’, as well as the processes used to create the pieces.

Unexpected Engagement by Jason Wilsher-Mills at Artlink Hull runs from January 12 until April 6. The exhibition is free to visit.

1pm – 3pm
