Join Yulin Huang, Whitechapel Gallery’s current Young Writer in Residence, and fine artist Natasha Brown for an evening in the spirit of almost-Christmas.
You’re invited to this fun, informal, and possibly existential night of unwrapping mysterious objects and collective experiences. Through a series of writing and discussion activities, we will reflect and write together about the experience of being an emerging artist.
Yulin will also be giving a special reading of ‘I Am (not in my bed)’, her residency submission in response to The London Open 2022 – a confession to what it feels like to exist as a young emerging artist in London, right now.
No prior experience in writing is necessary, this workshop is best suited to those who identify as a young creative or emerging artist, as well as those who are interested in joining the conversation.
This is a special edition of our Young Creatives Nights to mark the culmination of Yulin’s residency at Whitechapel Gallery. Our Young Creatives Nights are informal evenings for early career creatives aged 21-28 to meet, share practice, and explore alongside other artists. We welcome attendees aged 18+ for this special edition.
Yulin Huang is a London-based Taiwanese/Kiwi artist who relishes creative writing in her expanded painting practice. With an unsparingly honest voice, she confronts the human condition. Yulin is Whitechapel Gallery’s inaugural Young Writer in Residence. Her residency runs from September – December 2022.
Natasha Brown is a UK-based South African artist invested in both making and teaching. Tapping into the sincerity that accompanies a failed illusion, she mixes both painting styles and forms to create scenarios exposing the mechanics of painting and storytelling.
