Visiting Artist's Talk — Ellie MacGarry

For this week's Visiting Artist's Talk (VAT), we welcome artist Ellie MacGarry.

Ellie MacGarry was born in Cambridge, UK in 1991 and now lives and works in London, UK.

She has a BA in Fine Art from the University of Leeds and an MFA in Painting from the Slade School of Fine Art for which she received a Felix Slade scholarship. After graduating from the Slade in 2018 she undertook a residency at the Academy of Visual Arts in Hong Kong.

Recent exhibitions include Your Hand is a Warm Stone at Steve Turner (2021), Untitled (But Loved) at Bosse and Baum (2020), Come Undone at Daniel Benjamin Gallery (2019), I know that you know at Wells Projects (2019), and In Hiding at the Academy of Visual Arts Gallery, Hong Kong (2018). She will have a solo exhibition at Steve Turner in November 2021.

The Visiting Artists' Talks (VAT) series for 2021/22 takes place live via Zoom every Monday afternoon during teaching weeks.

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

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