The Agnes Etherington Art Centre is thrilled to welcome Lynne Marsh as artist-in-residence this fall.  This exciting initiative aims to support Marsh’s artistic practice by combining research and studio time with public conversations and debate. During her six-week tenure, Marsh will engage with Queen’s University’s 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 is also an avenue for the Agnes to experiment with new approaches to exhibition-making and to jumpstart artistic collaborations.

The residence is developed around three major public conversations:

Thursday 3 October, 7pm: Studio, Stage, Screen: Performance and the Camera

These events are free and open to everyone.

About Lynne Marsh
Lynne Marsh is an internationally acclaimed artist whose practice lies at the intersection of moving image, performance and installation.  Marsh invests specific sites and architectures—the spaces of spectacle—through location-based filming and behind-the-scenes views. Strategically delving into the spaces and performances on the margin of mass consumption and mass cultural expression, the works stage the network of historical, social and political forces that produce the spectacle. Marsh explores how the camera’s performance reconfigures social spaces and their ideological orientation, inviting viewers to step on stage, to seize an active role.

Solo exhibitions of Lynne Marsh’s work have been held at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; Steve Turner Contemporary Los Angeles; the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal; Danielle Arnaud contemporary art, London; and PROGRAM, Berlin. Her work has also been included in group exhibitions and screenings at Palais des Beaux Arts, Brussels; Kunstverein Wolfsburg, Germany; the 10th International Istanbul Biennial; Centro Cultural Montehermoso, Spain; Manif d’art 5, Quebec City; Oakville Galleries, Canada; 53 Art Museum, China; and The National Gallery of Canada. She lives and works between Montréal, Berlin and London.
