Our seminars are conversational spaces focused on a couple of MFAs alongside the guest artist in each session to share appetising leftovers, fresh beginnings, and difficulties between as practitioners, related to our degree show timeline and beyond.

Encouraging interaction from the public, these free-flowing discussions aim to play with the traditional frameworks of a seminar, artist talk, or crit. The seminars are punctuated by our proposal for in-person localised picnics, which you can lead yourself anywhere in the world. All of this leads up to our pixelmeat website launch, featuring a live conversation with The White Pube about degree shows followed by a website walk-thru led by surprise special guests. Each seminar will be sculpted by each guest artist’s particular interests.

"Lynette Yiadom-Boakye (born 1977) is a British painter and writer. She is best known for her portraits of imaginary subjects, or ones derived from found objects, who are painted in muted colours. Her work has contributed to the renaissance in painting the Black figure. Her paintings often are presented in solo exhibitions." (Tate)
