Jim Poyner: Arte Útil talk

12 May 2016 4:00 pm - 12 May 2016 5:00 pm

Artist Jim Poyner explores the notion of ‘useful art’, informed by the results of a set of questions he asked members of Middlesbrough’s population. In these interviews, and aided by techniques of street photography, he addresses whether ‘usership’, both as a model and concept, can be a way of surpassing the typical divide in engagement with art between museum’s specialised audiences and the general public.
