4x4: Sheena Rose and Lauren Hinds: Parallel Narratives

Friday 1 October, 2010, at 8.00 pm

Conceptual sketches by Sheena Rose and Lauren Hinds

The final event in 4x4, Alice Yard’s fourth anniversary programme, is a collaborative project by Barbadian artist Sheena Rose and Trinidadian artist Lauren Hinds.

Rose was artist in residence at Alice Yard in May 2009, when she presented her animated video work Town. She recently participated in a residency and exhibition in Cape Town. Hinds, who works in the medium of the graphic novel, recently completed a year-long programme at the Centre for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont.

The two artists have spent a week working collaboratively, and will present their work in progress alongside recent solo works. Their collaboration began with an exchange of visual images from their respective environments in Barbados and Trinidad, which they attempted to interpret and respond to. Audience members on Friday night will have the opportunity to create their own interpretation of the resulting visual narratives, before the artists reveal the details of their stories.

All are invited.
