Art in the City Talk: Laura Oldfield Ford

Date 09.03.11

Time 6.00pm

Location Arnolfini


An audio recording of Laura Oldfield Ford's talk at Arnolfini in March 2011.


Laura Oldfield Ford's drawings reflect on the urban landscape. Often beginning with the idea of the walk, her practice engages with cities in a psycho-geographic investigation, creating narratives that float between past, present and future. Informed by her investment in the counter culture politics, she produces illustration works for a variety of ephemeral media formats including billboards, posters and zines, responding to slick corporate designs by using a more homespun drawing aesthetic.
