Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Anna Berry

Anna mostly creates socially- and politically-conscious pieces, large (sometimes kinetic) installations, and often works with paper. Very much an art-world outsider, her work is usually shown in non-gallery environments. She likes to respond to specific places and ideas. Conceptually her work often explores issues surrounding reality and experience, and by extension the nature of reality.

Anna is the first artist to be awarded a DASH Curatorial Commission, her residency began in April at MAC, Midlands Arts Centre. Anna's residency consists of:

• 3 months learning about the practices of working as a curator within MAC

• 3 months developing and working up ideas under the mentorship of the Visual Arts Producer at MAC

• 6 months developing and delivering an agreed curatorial project at MAC

MAC Birmingham has now announced the dates and details of Anna Berry's curated exhibition, Art and Social Change: The Disability Arts Movement. Please click here to read MAC's overview on her upcoming exhibition. The exhibition will be running from Sat 11th January to Sun 22nd March 2020.

Both MAC and DASH are committed to giving the highest possible training opportunities, support and professional development pathways within the Curatorial Commissions Project.
