20th November from 7pm –
Recent ELP Artist in Residency Daisy Billowes will be giving a talk about her contemporary art practice in relation to Print and the printed image. For the past 7 years she has been studying and questioning the different forms of print in relation to the history of craft, mechanical and digital (re)production. Her talk will encompass these issues and how she addresses them in her contemporary art practice.

Artist Talk: 06/11/18 – 42 Copperfield Rd. E3 4RR
The Conservator’s Role in Museums and Galleries:
Addressed in this lecture will be the idea that artworks possess multiple identities over time.
Giving practical examples Elisabeth will introduce the range of ways that conservators research, conserve and present artworks. Technical examination can provide clues about an artwork’s material history – both how it was made and how it may have altered over time. Such information can help in conservation decision making, but it won’t alter the fact that an artwork has multiple identities, and that returning to the ‘original work’ or halting for ever material change is neither possible, nor perhaps even desirable
Elisabeth Reissner has an MA in Drawing (Camberwell), a Postgraduate Diploma in the Conservation of Easel paintings and a PhD in Art History (Technical Study Within Art Historical Scholarship: ‘Meaning in Making’ With Particular Reference to the Works of Paul Cézanne at The Courtauld Institute of Art). She has combined work as a paintings’ conservator in galleries and museums such as the Frans Halsmuseum and Tate, with teaching on conservation, curating and art history undergraduate and post graduate courses at UCL and the Courtauld Institute of Art. Her own practice gets a look in every now and again.
On Tuesday 16th October at 7pm we will be welcoming our next Artist Talk speaker Thomas Gosebruch to the studio where he will be discussing his current works on the subject of crisis management.

Artist Almudena Romero will be explaining her wet collodion projects, focusing on her tintype work, as well as on the commissions she has received to set up pop- up collodion darkrooms at institutions such as the V&A, the National Portrait Gallery and the University of the Arts London. Almudena will be explaining the history and the technicalities of the wet collodion process and how museums and galleries might approach the subject of teaching early processes in-house.
Born in Madrid in 1986, Almudena Romero is a visual artist working with a wide range of photographic processes from early printing techniques such as cyanotype, salt printing or wet plate collodion, to new technologies including 3Dscanning and printing. Since 2015, Almudena has shown and explained her practice at TATE Modern-TATE Exchange, TATE Britain, The Photographers’ Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Whitechapel Gallery, the London Art Fair and the University of the Arts London, and delivered courses and lectures at National Portrait Gallery, the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum, the Mapfre Foundation, the Sotheby’s Institute of Art, University of Westminster, Kingston University and Southampton Solent University. She has also received commissions to produce installations in public spaces from Team London Bridge, Southwark Council, Emergency Exit Artist, Wellcome Trust and University College London. Her work has been published in TimeOut, DUST magazine, Uncertain States and Photomonitor.
Almudena’s practice uses photographic processes to reflect on issues relating to identity, representation and ideology; such as the role of photography in the construction of national identity, or the link between photographic archives and colonialism. Her work focuses on how photographic processes and technology transform the notions of public, private, individuality, identity, memory, and, in general, the concept of the individual. Almudena’s works touch on how perception affects existence and how photographic processes contribute to organising perception.

/dɪˈreɪl/ : An Artist Talk
5 December, 2017, 7pm
Derailed is an artist talk by current project key holder Kristina Chan. It features large-scale panelled prints derived from a discovered train wreck. These works are part of a developing series exploring the ideas of shelter and the repercussions when these preconceptions fail us.
Kristina’s work is a culmination and accumulation into site specific history to depict socio-cultural entropic narratives. They explore the correlation between architecture and sculptural landscapes of derelict and disused spaces. I seek sites where the intersection between function and intention have fallen into decline and disrepair, where untold histories recount themselves, in all their brevity, satire, beauty, and collapse.
Please join us at East London Printmakers on 5th December at 7pm, where Kristina will speak about her artistic and material practice, as well as the inspirations and exploration behind these works.
Join us in the studio on Monday the 27th February for one of our Artist Talk Series with current ELP Artist in Residence, Nica Harrison.
Over the past 3 months, our Artist in Resident, Sam Nias, has been developing a series of Screenprints inspired by the visual technical glitches and malfunctions that we see in todays new technologies.
Come and join us in the studio to see an exhibition of Sams’ new Screenprints and hear what he has to say about his project.
Who : Sam Nias
Where : ELP Studio, 19 Warburton Road, E8 3RT
When : 5th July 2016 – 7pm
