Work In Progress is a free event open to artists and makers at all stages of their careers. This WIP will be led by NN Contemporary Art’s Artist in Residence Dominic From Luton, beginning with a presentation of his practice and a Q&A, and the opportunity to present your work-in-progress in a friendly and supportive peer review.
The event will be divided into two parts including the artist talk and the work in progress presentations. The presentation slots are limited to 10 participants and are open to artists and makers at all stages of their careers.
In light of the current COVID-19 restrictions, the event will happen on Zoom – a link will be emailed to attendees. This event will be live captioned and transcription will be available afterwards. The event will be recorded for archival purposes. For help with how to set up Zoom and accessibility enquiries, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dominic Allan (b 1977, Luton) is a contemporary visual artist working across photography, sculpture, installation, performance and public art. His practice is socially collaborative, localised and direct. Throughout Allan’s practice, context is key.
Allan took up the moniker, ‘Dominic from Luton’ in 2003 in response to the new glorification of Crap Towns. His hometown coming 2nd in a national survey. Allan positions the socio-politics of his upbringing at the centre of his practice, considering autobiography, prompting a deconstruction of political ideology through performance art. Allan is interested in regionality, degeneration and art made in the margins.
