Spike Island partner, Wysing Arts Centre announces ten selected for Syllabus VII

Syllabus VII are delighted to announce the ten selected artists for Syllabus VII in partnership with Eastside Projects, New Art Exchange, PS2, Spike Island, Studio Voltaire and TACO!:

The selected artists are Omid Asadi, Maggie Campbell, Katrina Cobain, Sophie Gresswell, Sahjan Kooner, Yoojin Lee, Natasha MacVoy, Michael, Alexis Parinas and Moira Salt.

Natasha MacVoy is also a studio artist at Spike Island. MacVoy explores ideas and motifs that relate to invisible labour, care and neurodiversity, through playful use of doubling, repetition and considered use of close-at-hand materials. Simultaneously highlighting universal experiences based on our perception of space, passage of time, processes of making, and how we might gather, hold and return to our thoughts.

Together the artists will co-produce the Syllabus programme in collaboration with artist advisor Uma Breakdown and the partner organisations. Over ten months, they will undertake workshops, critical conversations and mentoring, whilst connecting with arts organisations and communities across the UK.

You can find more information about each artist here.
