Meet the artist – Kateřina Šedá

Wednesday 25 September 2019

Free, suggested donation £3*
Drop in, no need to book
Slow Boat, Brindleyplace

Meet artist Kateřina Šedá and find out more about her art practice and residency on Ikon Slow Boat, which involves working with Birmingham residents to develop an ambitious proposal in response to her time here.

Šedá’s practice interrogates the interstices of urban architecture and the everyday spaces, making interventions to improve communications, find solutions and make positive change. In 2018 she co-curated and presented UNES-CO for the 16th International Biennale of Architecture in Venice.

This event is part of  Looping the Loop, a socially responsive programme on Slow Boat that takes place between canal and community spaces, offering a vehicle for greater understanding of the experiences of refugees and new arrivals to the city. Read the latest about Slow Boat on Ikon Blog.

Slow Boat is accessible by wheelchair via a ramp and lift and crew are on hand to provide additional assistance for foot passengers boarding the boat. We advise visitors to call 0121 248 0708 to discuss any access requirements.
