Traces of the Earth
Lapworth Museum of Geology
University of Birmingham
1 April - 31 August 2022
We're always excited to hear about a new projects featuring Joyce Treasure, one of our favorite, constantly compelling visual artists. As a multidisciplinary artist, Joyce's work has been exhibited and screened all over the world. But what we also love is that Joyce is never bound by archetypal art spaces, sure, her work has been exhibited at the ICA and the Tate, but we can always find her too on a parallel path exploring new avenues and bringing art to new venues.
In new work, opening to the public next week at the Lapworth Museum of Geology, located on the grounds of Birmingham University, Joyce has combined with fellow artists Pauline Bailey and Ola Brown in a collaborative artist residency to explore the Lapworth Museum's collection of fossils, rocks and minerals.
Responding to specific items or themes in Lapworth's vast collection, Traces of the Earth features installations created by the three artists and runs from April 1st until August 31st.
Traces of the Earth is produced and curated in partnership between the Black Arts Forum and the Lapworth Museum of Geology and runs from April 1st until August 31st, 2022.

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
