Greenfield Arts are delighted to bring artist in residence Richard Bliss to the area to work with the wider community including the community connected to Greenfield Arts, the Men’s Cree and our volunteers. Richard is a collaborative artist who engages the public in his work and seeks to question the role of men and masculinity in our society today.
Richard has recently been working alongside the Greenfield Arts Men’s Cree Group exploring what masculinity means to them and sharing ideas of individual perceptions. The group are creating new work that will represent the enquiry which will be showcased as part of a high-profile exhibition at Greenfield Arts in late summer.
The exhibition ‘Man-made’ is an exploration of how men adjust to changing masculinity and will include work supported by Lubaina Himid (Turner Prize Winner 2017) and artist William Titley. The exhibition will run from Thursday 25th July – Wednesday 18th September and includes a preview and talk event on Wednesday 24th July from 18:00 – 20:00 which is free and open to the public.
The residency is one of many projects and activities as part of the work of Greenfield Arts that seeks to encourage creativity and the opportunity for people to express themselves and have a strong voice.
