Holly Blakey (UK)

Male or Female, Closes: July 16, 2015

Blakey has been awarded funding by Arts Council England to create a new piece premiering at Hales Gallery on 21st and 22nd August. Some Greater Class will have the look and feel of a live pop video that will operate through a sustained physical connection between dancer, musician and audience.

The piece will be an hour long dance performance holding six dancers, live music and a ticketed audience in one of London's most influential commercial galleries. The work will challenge the strict infrastructure of the art world by both her practice as a choreographer (music video) and the place in which the piece will sit (Hales).

Blakey will address the concept that work made for the popular consumer holds less quality and question if not the world around us, who are we really make art for? What are we really saying about each other if the work in hand is not belonging of the people around us?
