Investigating female ageing through creative practice: Beverley Carruthers and Jane Woollatt in conversation with Rosy Martin and Kay Goodridge

3:00pm-4:00pm on Saturday 27 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Artists Jane Woollatt and Beverley Carruthers have known each other for over 35 years, and have worked together on a project motivated by menopause. The project evolved and developed through the process of making and thinking together, anchored by a specific location; an intertidal space on the Essex coast named Two Tree Island. Using props and costumes which have been modified and adapted over time, they have produced a series of stills and moving images.

Artists Rosy Martin and Kay Goodridge work collaboratively using theoretical and performative strategies to analyse and contest the social and cultural constructions of the ageing body. 

There are many common threads between all these artists. They make work that is playful, confrontational, intellectual, vulnerable, transgressive, and carnivalesque. During the conversation they will uncover thoughts and ideas about making work from a lived experience specifically confronting questions about ageing. 

Join them for this insight into their creative process and their unique look at menopause and ageing.

There will be a follow-up workshop where you will get to explore some of the artistic methods used by the artists. 

In association with Art at the Alison Richard Building.
