A lecture with artists Caroline and Maisie Broadhead


Join us for a lecture with British artists Caroline and Maisie Broadhead. Their respective multi-disciplinary practices move between jewellery, textiles, photography and performance, where mother and daughter work and exhibit independently and collaboratively. Their first official collaboration was in 2011 for an exhibition called Take the Chair at the Marsden Woo Gallery in London, however their artistic working relationship started long before this point and this lecture sets out to explore both their individual and co-working practices.

For more than forty five years, Caroline Broadhead (b. 1950) has explored objects that come into contact and interacts with the body. What started with jewellery developed into clothing and other objects. Significant elements of her work use historic buildings as both inspiration and location and collaborations with choreographers build intimate and highly charged atmospheres in dance performances.

Maisie Broadhead¿s practice, daughter of Caroline Broadhead, employs a broad range of material and processes. Often her work is a dialogue between the handmade object and the heavily staged photographic images. By using contemporary and historical elements, her images link the past and present by identifying enduring social and aesthetic narratives.

During this lecture, they will present an overview of their individual creative practices and then explain how their relationship crosses over from an intimate family one to one that supports their individual artistic pursuits.

The lecture is in English.
