Next meeting February 15th 2010, 7-9pm - Barbara Steveni

A warm welcome to the next NPBIAC gathering, Monday, February 15th, 7-9 pm. We are proud to have Barbara Steveni as host for this meeting.

Barbara Steveni conceived and co-founded the Artist Placement Group (APG), in London in 1966 with a vanguard of artists, including Ian Breakwell, David Hall, John Latham, Anna Ridley and Jeffrey Shaw working in emerging fields of Multi-Media and Conceptual Art of that time. Steveni’s innovative concept, based on a more holistic and intuitive view of Art than was current at the time, would take another 20 years to enter the mainstream. APG, later renamed O+I, acted as the precursor to current notions of ‘Artist in Residence’ and Public Art programmes.

Steveni is currently active as artist, curator and lecturer, in particular addressing Art and the ‘new’ Economics, Art and Business and ‘Socially Engaged Art Practice’ from and on behalf of the artist voice. Additionally, Steveni is engaged in a personal work under the title; I AM AN ARCHIVE, tracing through a series of walks, revisits and interviews, her life and role within APG / O+I, in relation to today’s circumstance, and to current and future art practice.

This occasion is open to 20 participants and you need to RSVP to nobodyputsbabyinacorner2009@live.com to be able to join, please do so before Feb. 14th at noon.
