Tracing the East is series of online events and screenings that reflect on the impact of New Geographies.
It has already brought us exhibitions and events by Maria Anastassiou – and this is our opportunity to find out more about other New Geographies artists as they collectively create a new map of East Anglia based on personal thoughts, reflections and stories of unexplored and overlooked places.
New Geographies invited the public to nominate locations for ten site-specific art works across the East of England. 11 artists were commissioned to make ambitious new works, including: Maria Anastassiou, David Blandy, Marcus Coates & Leah Millar, Cooking Sections, Ian Giles, Krijn de Koning, susan pui san lok, Studio Morison, Stuart Whipps and Laura Wilson.
Tracing the East brings us together to experience some of the works produced as we discuss three key themes that emerged from the ten collaborations: Population, Landscape and History.
