The aim of Babeworld is to divulge into real life issues and demonstrate the organic process of making work. The goal is to create a welcoming and safe space for those who are marginalised, particularly in ways which are not visible - those restricted by their class, gender, race, and everything in between. Collective ailments I hear you ask? Well, the short story is: ASD, BPD. We’ll let you guess whose who.
Born from the lack of diversity in art education and disappointment in art curriculums, Don’t Worry I’m Sick and Poor is a lecture series created by artists and facilitators Ellie Harman-Taylor (whinegums), Ashleigh Williams and Georgina Tyson (Babeworld) as an essential alternative within art education. Artists are invited to give lectures based on their experiences of the art world – whether that’s in the form of a love letter to your nan, the complexities of pricing up meal deals at Tesco during your degree, or your aversion to eggs. Attend these lectures to discover how to finesse the system – from one marginalised person to another.
By creating an accessible critical framework through formatting and digestible language, Don’t Worry, I’m Sick and Poor aims to open up a new dialogue- an alternative to academic critique and its place in modern society.
Babeworld and ICA present a series of three lectures, introducing themselves and their work and featuring artists Gabriella Davies and Justin Piccirilli.
