These will be followed by questions and discussion around Corridor8’s most recent residency and ways that art writing can respond critically and creatively to city-wide events

Join us for the launch of Occasional Residents, the third instalment of Corridor8’s main residency programme, commissioned in partnership with Humber Street Gallery as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017.

Developed in response to Humber Street Gallery’s exhibitions and the wider City of Culture programme of events, this limited-edition publication includes contributions by Devon Forrester-Jones, Claire Potter, Rebecca Senior and Jamie Sutcliffe. Produced in collaboration with the multidisciplinary design collective, dust, each copy contains an artist insert by Lee Karen Stow.

The event will follow directly on from the art writing workshop and provide an opportunity to meet the featured writers and purchase one of the 150 limited-edition publications at a special price.
