Internationally-acclaimed artist Lynne Marsh was in residence at the Agnes in the fall of 2013. This initiative aimed to support Marsh’s artistic practice by combining research and studio time with public conversations and debate. During her six-week tenure, Marsh engaged with Queen’s University research and creative communities through public talks, seminar presentations, colloquia, and classroom interventions—a constellation of stages and contexts to discuss contemporary practice. This residence was also an avenue for the Agnes to experiment with new approaches to exhibition-making and to jumpstart artistic collaborations.
Public engagement with the residency was developed around three conversations and an off-site screening:
Screening: The Screening Room, 120 Princess St (2nd floor)
The Philharmonie Project (Bruckner: Symphony No. 5, movements 1 & 4)
Wednesday, 6 November, 8 pm, 2014
This screening was part of the Unibrow: Art House Film Series, co-presented by Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre and The Screening Room.
Lynne Marsh’s presence as Visiting Artist in Residence at Queen’s University was developed and produced by the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in partnership with the Cultural Studies Program. Other collaborators include the Fine Art Program (Visual Art), the Film and Media Department, the School of Music and the Department of Languages, Literatures & Cultures (German) at Queen’s University, and local, national and international partners: Modern Fuel Artist-Run Center; Corridor Cultures Collective, Kingston; “Programme ICI: Intervenants Culturels Internationeaux” at the Université du Québec à Montréal; and the School of Creative Arts, University of Hertfordshire, UK.
This initiative was generously funded by the Principal’s Development Fund through the Office of Research Services at Queen’s University.
