Seeing Things (Together): Ruth Ewan
17th June at 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Our favourite things about seeing a film or an exhibition is chatting about it afterwards, but as this can’t always happen at the moment, we’ve created a space on Zoom where we can see things together and have a chance to share our thoughts afterwards if we want to.
Seeing Things, Thursday 17th June, 3pm to 4.30pm, Online, Women only, 16+
Each session will be a virtual “trip” to see or watch something (short films, performances, online exhibitions or music) followed by an informal and open chat facilitated by our Seeing Things volunteers. These sessions are about exploring women artists together, regardless of how little or how much we know about art.
The session will introduce the work of a Glasgow-based contemporary artist, Ruth Ewan. We’ll revisit her commission for the Edinburgh Art Festival 2018, Sympathetic Magick, and consider how artists can highlight overlooked and marginalized histories, people, places and create alternative narratives.
The session was stimulating, informative, inspiring and altogether gorgeous. I felt welcome and the atmosphere was open and kind. – Previous Seeing Things (Together) participant
