Visiting Artist's Talk — Aimée Parrott

For this week's Visiting Artist's Talk (VAT), we welcome Aimée Parrott.

Aimée Parrott’s practice spans painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture. She uses techniques more traditionally associated with craft to create works that explore her relationship with time, memory, touch and trace.

Parrott studied at Falmouth then the Royal Academy (London), has undertaken several residencies including at the Artists’ League of New York (2014), and won the inaugural Dentons Prize (2016). Recent exhibitions include Studio at 4am at Hastings Contemporary and Kate McMillan and Aimée Parrott for Arusha Gallery at Zona Maco art fair, Mexico City (both 2020). In 2019 she curated All That the Rain Promises and More at Arusha Gallery for the Edinburgh Arts Festival. Her forthcoming shows include Gaia’s Kidney at Broadway Gallery (Letchworth, 2020) and a solo presentation at Mackintosh Lane Gallery (London, 2021).

The Visiting Artists' Talks (VAT) series for 2020/21 will welcome eighteen guests across two semesters to join us live via Teams every Monday afternoon during teaching weeks.

Each session brings an arts professional to talk with us (as a community) about what they do and why, and to chat with the student body honestly about their career journey and interests.

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

To request a link for this talk, please email Nick Thurston by 1pm on 16 November..
