Testing Media: Mel Brimfield

Event Time: 10-5pm Monday to Friday, 10-4pm Saturdays
Venue: The Peter Scott Gallery, Great Hall Complex, Lancaster University

Lee Krasner, Jackson Pollock, Tony Hancock, Max Miller and Vincent Van Gogh - although perhaps not as you would imagine. Mel Brimfield's complex practice takes a skewed and tangled romp through the already vexed historiography of performance art, simultaneously revealing and inventing a rich history of collaboration between artists, dancers, theatre makers, political activists and comedians.

Initiated by the Art Fund and the Contemporary Art Society, Testing Media is a scheme that explores the challenges of contemporary collecting. Following a national process, two acquisition awards were made to focus on collecting performance. In partnership with the Harris Museum & Art Gallery, Preston, Live at LICA has looked at the work of Mel Brimfield. The resulting co-acquisition features an incredible 19 works that demonstrate Brimfield’s multifarious practice.

The whole acquisition is on display for the first time to both celebrate the Testing Media scheme and form part of Live at LICA’s programme for Lancaster University’s 50th Anniversary. The display demonstrates the significant work and legacies created through long-term support and partnership working.

These acquisitions were presented by the Art Fund and the Contemporary Art Society, 2014. For more information please see the Live at LICA website: https://www.liveatlica.org/whats-on/testing-media-mel-brimfield
