Simple Acts with Barby Asante
27 July 2016, 6.30–8.30pm

Working in response to Yinka Ilori’s exhibition Do Good Because of Tomorrow, Barby led a seated consideration of artistic identity in Milton Keynes. Taking inspiration from the act of sitting, this informal but intimate conversational event used a selection of chairs as a starting point for artists to sit and consider the place and position of their individual practices.

Simple Acts curated by Groundwork artists Ashleigh Griffith and Cara Davies, with host Artists Barby Asante, Ria Hartley, Hayley Newman and Sibylle Peters. May 2016 – March 2017

Simple Acts was a discursive platform curating everyday activities of simple actions to encourage sharing, networking and debate amongst the creatively curious. Developed by arts collective Tracing The Pathway for their Milton Keynes based performance and research project Groundwork, in partnership with Milton Keynes Arts Centre.

Milton Keynes Arts Centre invited Groundwork to curate a series of Simple Acts, each responding to new work by Yinka Ilori, Ibiye Camp, Tom Dale and Izzy Parker in collaboration with our communities in Common Ground; Milton Keynes Arts Centre’s community participation and artist development programme, offering a twelve month season of five distinct projects, presenting high quality and meaningful opportunities for engagement between a diverse spectrum of artists and communities living in Milton Keynes.
