Visiting Artist's Talk — Jamie Crewe

For this week's Visiting Artist's Talk (VAT), we welcome Jamie Crewe.

Jamie Crewe is an artist, a singer, and a beautiful bronze figure with a polished cocotte’s head who lives in Glasgow. They graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2009 with a BA in Contemporary Fine Art, and from Glasgow School of Art in 2015 with a Master of Fine Art.

They have presented three solo exhibitions — Pastoral Drama at Tramway, Glasgow (2018), Female Executioner at Gasworks, London (2017), and But what was most awful was a girl who was singing at Transmission, Glasgow (2016) — and have been involved in recent group exhibitions in Berlin, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Copenhagen, and Vienna.

Their book GLAIRE was published in 2017 by Ma Bibliothèque, and they have presented their performance work Potash Lesson (2016) in Glasgow, London, Berlin and Belfast.

Their video Adulteress (2017) was recently featured in Cellular World at the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow as part of the Glasgow International 2018 director’s programme.

The Visiting Artist’s Talk (VAT) series hosts talks by an exciting range of arts practitioners from around the world every Monday afternoon from 14:00 to 15:30 during teaching weeks.

All of our talks are compulsory for our Fine Art students but open to anyone else who would like to join us.
