In Conversation – Judy Price
Join artist Judy Price in discussion with art historian Lucy Reynolds and academic, editor and writer Anthony Downey about her work in Still on show currently at The Mosaic Rooms, and her wider practice. Still is a unique and complex body of work focused on Palestine, with pieces reflecting in very different ways on Palestine’s colonial past and the current lived experience of occupation. Judy, Lucy and Anthony will discuss the works, as well as reflect on wider issues around artists working in moving image, with archival materials, and the role of “the artist as ethnograper.”
Judy Price works across photography, moving image, sound and installation. She experiments with different techniques and ways of collecting material to address collective struggles and create new perceptions of the experiences of individuals and social groups. Price is a Course Director in Photography (MA) at Kingston University and a Senior Lecturer in Moving Image (BA) at the University of Brighton. Her work has been exhibited and screened internationally including; UK (Imperial War Museum, Barbican, London and Tent Gallery, Edinburgh), Norway (Stiftelsen 3,14,Bergen), Canada (Galerie Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, Montreal), Germany (Kunshaus Cinema) and Palestine (Khalil Sakakini Cultural Centre, Ramallah and Al-Ma’mal Foundation for Contemporary Art, Jerusalem).
