Abstract or description

Brownsword was invited to present at the Transmission lecture series, convened by Chloe Brown department of Fine Art, Sheffield Hallam University, in collaboration with Site Gallery and Art Sheffield.

Reactivating the Post-Industrial Landscape of North Staffordshire and its Associated Histories through Contemporary Art Practice

Abstract
For over a decade Neil Brownsword’s exploration of Stoke-on-Trent’s post-industrial landscape as a raw material has renegotiated its associated socio-economic histories and production infrastructure through a variety of perspectives and practices. In this presentation Neil Brownsword will elucidate his ongoing investigation of place, the displacement of its ceramic industry through his practice as artist/archaeologist.

Brownsword will also discuss the international artistic research project Topographies of the Obsolete, initiated in collaboration with Bergen Academy of Art and Design. The project documents both the aftermath of the Spode factory closure and the repurposing of its post-industrial fabric through processes of culture-led regeneration.
