Ruth Ewan’s work takes many forms, including events, installation, writing and printed matter. She will visit Cornwall in October to lead a workshop contributing to the development of field trips as part of the Groundwork programme.
Ruth’s practice explores overlooked histories of radical, political and utopian thought, bringing to light specific ideas in order to question how we might live today. Always engaging with others, Ewan’s projects involve a process of focused research and close collaboration – recent projects have led her to develop context-specific projects within schools, prisons, hospitals, libraries, universities, Parliament and the London Underground.
Falmouth University will host a lecture by Ruth Ewan in the School of Art’s Guest Speakers series. Lectures are open to students and the public. Admission is free but booking is required via Eventbrite.
This talk is organised as part of Groundwork, a three-year project bringing outstanding art and artists to Cornwall, supported by Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence scheme. Field trips, workshops and events during 2016 and 2017 are building towards a high-profile programme of commissions and sited work in 2018.
