Join artists, thinkers and curators to learn about their practice in a lunch-hour. Our Autumn 2020 series is taking place online in collaboration with the LICA Fine Art department at Lancaster University. Visiting speakers share original videos followed by an interactive live Q&A. Expect anything from a behind-the-scenes tour of their studio to to a live performance or screening.
Jose Garcia Oliva is a Venezuelan–Spanish artist based in London whose interdisciplinary practice aims to react to the hidden socio-political oppression and exposes it through participatory performances or public interventions. The outcome of his work is usually the enactment of these social exchanges and provocations shaped by the commons, site-specificity and spontaneity. His practice is research-led and situated on the clash between identity, place, the burning ashes of post-colonialism and its echo in Europe.
As part of the Live Art development Agency’s national DIY Programme, Jose was commissioned to deliver White Vinegar, a four-day online workshop hosted by Lancaster Arts exploring what it means to clean, and to be clean in a post pandemic world.
