Over the past 6 years we’ve had the chance to work with hundreds of incredible artists; from well established artists in and around Cornwall to new talent often straight out of education, and there are some artists we keep going back to. So as the peculiarities of the Covid 19 unfolds, restricting conditions for making and showing work, we wanted to reach out to these artists as a barometer for these times.
With commissions released gradually from June to November each artist has just a couple of weeks to reflect on limitations or expansions of their immediate physical environs, field of practice or production, or community – creating something quick, small and digital that we can then share with you.
The artists are also each creating a small physical edition, which will be brought together to make up the ‘from the field’ anthology; a compilation of reflections and creations instigated by the global pandemic. The anthology will be released for sale in November – for updates sign up to our mailing list.
‘From the Field’ is made possible by the generous support of National Lottery players, through Arts Council England’s Emergency Fund.
