To compliment her recent residency in Shanghai, Dale, a Mark Devereux Projects
artist, will undertake historical research at the National Arts Education Archive
(NAEA) at YSP.
The focus of her research residency will be built around the Bretton Hall College's
educational ethos: “Excellence is accessible”, with a view to mining the archives for visual responses to this idea, so that her overall work within this project will present a visual and conceptual tension between how knowledge is created/stored and how it is passed on/taught.
Supported by Mark Devereux Projects, YSP and Arts Council England, the residency is part of Nicola Dale's current project Not so firm as faded ink
(working title) which will be culminating with a solo exhibition due to take place in spring 2015.
Dale will be the second artist in our Bothy Lab: First Fridays
on 4 July 2014. Drop in to meet the artist, view the work created on site and try techniques such as book binding.
