Last week we announced who the two vacant plot (#9 & #10) holders were going to be, as part of mac birmingham's ALLOTMENT project!
Firstly Birmingham, UK / Bordeaux, FR artist collective Dialogue
A group of Birmingham artists in association with artists from Bordeaux develop an exchange relationship under the collective title Dialogue. In collaboration with mac birmingham’s curatorial project ALLOTMENT, Dialogue will build on an existing four-year interchange.
The name Dialogue reflects the idea of an ongoing, two-way, conversation with the discourse entering the public realm through exhibitions and publications. ALLOTMENT presents an appropriate vehicle to publicly explore the development of new work leading to further collaborative exhibitions in Birmingham and Bordeaux in 2013/14.
And last but not least!
Congratulations Helen Foot - the final plot holder
Helen Foot is a textile designer, lecturer and curator from Shropshire with a Masters Degree from the Royal College of Art. She returned to her home county after graduation in 2010 to set up her design business and has since developed a strong local network of fellow designer makers. Her background in textiles ensures she has an appreciation of quality and a keen eye for detail which in Plot 9 she marries with a blend of fresh colour, contemporary style and humour. Having curated two exhibitions last year in Shrewsbury, Helen now brings to ALLOTMENT her pick of the brightest emerging and established artists from the County.
