Artist talk from Jade Sweeting and Louis Hartley from 2pm
For Middlesbrough Art Weekender 2021, artist Jade Sweeting presents new work and activity from her ongoing project Hell Cats, inspired by, and dedicated to every woman who rides a motorcycle, gets their hands dirty and who wants to be free. Jade will share new prints and talk about research on women who ride Choppers.
Living and working in Newcastle upon Tyne, Jade Sweeting is originally from Middlesbrough but completed her BA Hons at Northumbria University before becoming the Graduate Fellow, specialising in print. She set up her own press ‘The Pulled Print Club’, a DIY Screen print studio that promoted affordable workshops and editioning services, delivered with a punk ethos. Sweeting’s own work in cooperates recycling found imagery using analogue techniques from printmaking to photography and is influenced by, sub-cultures, feminist theory and archiving. Jade has previously shown work from Hell Cats at Baltic 39 (Newcastle, 2019) and One Paved Court (London, 2020).
The Library is open between 10-4pm if you just want to drop in and ask questions outside of the event. We hope you can join us this Friday.
