During the event Kettle’s Yard ARTcrowd has arranged a private tour with the curators and artists. Each year three artists are appointed to work in collaboration with three different University of Cambridge departments relevant to each phase of the development.

The event, which only runs for two days, will feature new works by each of the artists who participated in the yearlong residency:

Fernando García-Dory, Dwelling Model: Unsettled Research Centre for Sustainability and the Built Environment – Installation Fernando García-Dory has devised an installation and Seminar to discuss and reflect on sustainability in the built environment

Aid & Abet, The Soft Landscape: Fieldwork – Exhibition Aid & Abet display sculptures, drawings, photographs and films made during their Residency, all works relate to the land surrounding the studio at Gravel Hill Farm

Tickets are £5, payable on the day, and include a glass of wine, nibbles and informal discussion afterwards. Please contact jt389@cam.ac.uk to book a place.
