Ways of Learning foregrounds forms of knowledge production that stem from anecdote, informality, and collectivity, engaging with BALTIC 39 as a site for learning. Providing a context for a rich programme of artworks and events, Ways of Learning draws from feminisms, generational alliances, and forms of solidarity which intersect with queer culture.
The gallery hosts a working and learning environment designed by Birmingham-based practice Intervention Architecture, which is open for anyone to use and share, along with a mobile kitchen by artist Kirsty Clarke. A work space with seating, WiFi, and tea and coffee is available throughout the project.
A temporary library has been constructed for the duration of the exhibition, housing titles from the collections of BALTIC Library, Burning House Books, NewBridge Books as well as various additional titles available to read.
To coincide with the Ways of Learning exhibition NewBridge will host a series of events, including HELL CATS: Publication Launch with Jade Sweeting, Thursday 11 April, 6-9pm and On our Backs Screening + Talk: Phyllis Christopher and Shar Rednour, Thursday 18 April, 6 – 8pm.
Please see The NewBridge Project website and social media for further details, and other upcoming events.
Ways of Learning: BALTIC is curated by Lucy Lopez and Kim McAleese (Grand Union, Birmingham) in partnership with BALTIC.
