Work in Common
August – September 2018
Libita Clayton, Amir George, Jasleen Kaur, Hardeep Pandhal, Nathalie Wuerth
Work in Common is a series of short residencies that encourage artists to experiment with different ways of working – either testing out a speculative idea, or developing new collaborations. Each artist will use the spaces at Primary to produce and present work to an audience, through screening, rehearsal, performances, workshops and meals.
