• BFMAF – Border Crossing

      Davies, Huw; Iredale, Melanie; University of Derby (Arts Council England, 2014-09)
      The 10th edition of the Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival (BFMAF) ‘Border Crossing’ (September 2014) explored border identities and the crossing and transcending of global boundaries against the background of the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum. The research contribution of Davies relates to the curation of the Artists’ Trail / Installations; a promenade exhibition of artists’ film and video contextualised by publication which links together a number of different site-specific architectural locations within the Elizabethan Ramparts. The 2014 edition featured the work of 47 artists and filmmakers from 17 different countries and included 16 UK premiers and 6 specifically commissioned works. The commissions (selected from an international call) provide the opportunity for the creation of original new works as a response to the Festival theme and environmental location. The audience attendance was 9450.

    • Otherlings

      Bartram, Angela; McCloskey, Paula; Baker, Steve; Davies, Huw; Basi, Philip Ranjit; Fisher, Craig; Vardy, Sam; Rushton, Stephanie; Mallinson, Mally; Parker, Christine; et al. (University of Derby, 18/10/2019)
      Otherlings is an exhibition featuring work from Ang Bartram, Steve Baker, Huw Davies and Philip Ranjit Basi, Craig Fisher, Paula McCloskey and Sam Vardy, Stephanie Rushton and Mally Mallinson, and Christine Parker. The overarching theme of the artworks within the exhibition suggests something beyond the parameters of dominancy and its cultural representation. The work in many ways offers explicit or implicit ways to connect us to other perspectives, and experiences through different and often unseen and discussed encounters. It thus opens up new paradigms for debate, for how we might live with care and compassion and function with others, as part of a world shared by many.
