2 June 2021, 2PM – 5PM
online event

Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (the University of Dundee) will present Joan Eardley has she has never been seen before, bringing new and vibrant conversations to an oeuvre of work created between 1940-1963. With a focus on the work created at nearby Catterline, Eardley’s evolving legacy has inspired a new generation of artists to create work through film, installation, textiles and paint. Join some of Scotland’s top art students as they prepare for their degree shows, presenting their thoughts on Eardley’s work and how it relates to their own practices. At the end of the conference, we’ll host an online (kahoot) prize quiz on Joan Eardley’s life and works, and the prize will be sent out to the winner(s) in the post.

The event is organised by INGEAR at DJCAD (Intersectional Gender Equality in the Arts Research), supporting marginalised artists and promoting better equalities in the artworld.
