Jevan Watkins Jones Residency
“I love you random citizen” was written by a participant of one of Jevan Watkins Jone’s first residency sessions last year. The anonymous writer set a precedent for Jevan to follow – to go out and generate chance encounters on campus through drawing.
Over the course of his year-long residency, Jevan Watkins Jones engages with the world outside Art Exchange’s doorstep, inviting all those around him to take part. Through various means, he gets everyone drawing – and generally having a good time in his great company!
Jevan’s next visit to Art Exchange: Thursday 6 June, 11.00 am – 3.00 pm, Square 3
Jevan returns to campus to populate his large scale drawings of the student scene – collaborators welcomed.
