Poetry Workshop with Traci O’Dea

Following the enormous success of previous poetry sessions, Poet Traci O’Dea will lead a workshop in which attendees will read poems and then create their own poems inspired by works in the Channel Islands Contemporary Art Show during a relaxed and supportive evening.

The Channel Islands Contemporary Art Show

As part of the inaugural Channel Islands Contemporary Art Show exhibition opening in Jersey audiences can expect a show that brings to life the curatorial ‘anchor point’ which is the inspiration for the Channel Islands have offered to artists through history, particularly from the late 19th century to mid 20th century, as well as reflecting the more complex social realities of the Islands today. It will also explore how both these realities continue to shape the Channel Islands’ relation to the wider world.

With stunning landscape and portrait photography, exquisite and subtly layered painted works alongside sculptural and video pieces, it will both question and invite the viewer to reflect on themselves and the complex global histories of these Islands. The show promises to be mysterious and experiential for the visitor, with shifting and changing perspectives, much like the Islands themselves when seen from close-up and afar, as visitors walk through the gallery environment.
