Watch the video of NWCD Artists in Residence Talk 2015 at the Festival of Ideas on 19 October 2015

Nov 10th 2015

Fabienne Nicholas, Head of Consultancy at Contemporary Art Society introduces the talk by outlining the art programme and the context of the North West Cambridge Development.  Managed and curated by the Contemporary Art Society and InSite Arts, the Habitation Artist Residency Programme forms the backbone of the public art strategy for the North West Cambridge Development. The artists are the first inhabitants of the site and participate in research collaborations with University of Cambridge departments to produce a range of creative responses that engender a sense of place for the new community.

The programme encourages collaboration between artists and departments within the University. In this, the third year of residencies, Lise Autogena and Joshua Portway are working work with The Sainsbury Laboratory and Ruth Ewan with the North West Cambridge Development Project Team. In this event for the Festival of Ideas 2015 the artists talk about their work and Residency Research.

This event was free and open to all.

The event took place at The Sainsbury Laboratory, Lecture Theatre, Cambridge University, Bateman Street CB2 1LR

Joshua Portway and Lise Autogena

Autogena and Portway have worked together since the early 1990’s, developing large scale performances, multimedia installations and site-specific work, usually in collaboration with organisations and experts across many specialised fields.

Ruth Ewan

Ewan’s work takes many forms including events, installation and printed matter. Her practice explores histories of radical, political and utopian thought, bringing to light specific ideas in order to question how we might live today.
