Artist residency, Dennis Isou
3 - 22 February 2014
Newcastle-based artist group Dennis Isou are undertaking an artist residency at A3 in partnership with the School of Art, Birmingham as part of Connect/Exchange, a Northern Film & Media initiative.
Dennis Isou is the pseudonym for the collaboration between recent graduate artists Mark Bleakley and Josh Wilson. Their projects include a residency at The Northern Charter and curating Musée Imaginaire, a series of talks and screenings in disparate spaces across Newcastle.
Following on from their performance-essay at Northern Charter, Newcastle in 2013, Isou will present a second version of A Crack in the Window for a small audience at A3.
For the project Isou is collaborating with London-based sound artist Tim Bamber. This performance is the focal point of their residency at A3 Project Space as part of the Connect-Exchange initiative by Northern Film and Media and is supported by the School of Art, Birmingham.
Following their residency at A3 they plan to produce a publication on return to Newcastle.
