Appau Jnr Boakye-Yiadom and Lloyd Corporation will be discussing connections between their approach to performance as integrated into a wider sculptural and installation practice.

Both have been selected to develop new work with DRAF as part of our Live Art Commissions programme, initiated with the belief that those who can must keep creating opportunities for artists in these difficult times.

Our forthcoming Broadcasts will be an opportunity for audiences to get to know all six artists invited for the Live Art Commissions programme, but also for the artists to get to know each other through informal conversation.

This event is part of a larger series of online conversations, co-hosted by DRAF and Performance Exchange since the start of lockdown. The webcast talks feature artists, curators and other cultural practitioners engaged in live work.

As organisations both being dedicated to performance and event-based art practices, this collaboration is born from the need to keep supporting these practices whilst gatherings are not possible. In creating this platform together, we want to share artistic projects and ideas with our audiences, whilst thinking through different cultural infrastructure that works for performance in times of social isolation.

Appau Jnr Boakye-Yiadom is a London based visual artist. He works across ready-made objects, sound, sculpture, photography archive and self-produced moving image to create installations with multi-layered references. Employing an ongoing process of re-purposing and re-mixing, in reference to the way that cultural products inform each other and evolve continuously.

Lloyd Corporation is a collaborative project between artists Ali Eisa and Sebastian Lloyd Rees. Working together since 2010 their practice utilizes sculpture, installation, performance and participation, often taking inspiration from informal and local economies.

Performance Exchange is a dispersed performance project across commercial galleries in London, some of which will also be hosting performances from international galleries in July 2020.

Highlighting the work done by commercial galleries to support multi-disciplinary and performance practice, Performance Exchange will create new forms of support for collecting performance art through a three day programme of presentations combined with detailed acquisition information for each work on an innovative digital platform.

Previous talks are published on our YouTube channel.
