dot-art is working with our friends at the Everyman to bring together theatre and visual art by embedding practising local artists within the theatre’s spaces, animating public areas and creating a body of work for exhibition.
This brand new initiative will see artists working on site at the Everyman for a minimum of half a day per week for 6 months. The artists will be introduced to all the people, spaces and activity within the theatre, with access to rehearsals and production areas behind the scenes. The residency will result in finished art works to be exhibited in the public areas of the Everyman.
Following a great response to a dot-art artist call-out at the start of 2022 for visual artists working in 2D and based within Liverpool City Region, there will be two residencies with two artists each. Residency one begins in April, with artists Alex Corina and Laleh Kamalian (top left and top right). A second residency will commence in October 2022 for six months with artists Tommy Graham and Kirsten Todd (bottom left and bottom right).
At the same time, we announced that dot-art will be curating a rolling programme of local artists work in a new exhibition space on the first floor at the Everyman. Art in the Ev will be open to individuals and groups, exhibitions will last between 2 to 6 weeks, with art work on display available to buy through the street cafe.
