With the Festival returning again this year we are hosting a range of talks in the leading up to the festival and during the festival itself by the artists that are involved. We are kicking off the Artist Talk programme with underwater film maker and artist Emma Critchley.

Emma Critchley is one of b-side’s 2016 commissioned artists and was selected out of over 200 artists from all over the world. Next week she will be talking about her current projects and the developments of her practice whilst working towards the b-side festival this September. Emma’s deep sea work has produced captivating and mesmerising artwork that is suspended in time. Her underwater work has enabled her to explore waters across the globe, with recent artist residencies in New York, Barbados and Singapore. Emma Critchley’s current film installation will tour to Leeds Central Library, the Southbank Centre and the BALTIC centre for contemporary art this summer.

As a qualified HSE commercial diver Emma will be diving and filming the Rowella wreck of Portland the upcoming festival in September. 

Come along to Outpost and find out more about Emma Critchley's current work! 
‘An evening with Film Maker Emma Critchley’ is a FREE event and will be the first of many other Artists Talks that will follow in the lead up and during the festival this year.
