Ranya Abdulateef - Honouring our refuse collectors
29/09/2021 - 29/09/2021
Opening hours on Artwalk 4.30 - 6.30pm
Artist Ranya Abdulateef is honouring our local refuse collectors in a new textile art work exhibited in the atrium case at Wakefield One.
The piece has been created through the use of some recycled fabric and various textile techniques such as quilting, hand embroidery and printing, incorporating personal stories of the workers.
It provides an archival document for our bin collectors that have worked tirelessly throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
Commissioned by Artwalk Wakefield.
Fiona Grady is a site-responsive artist. Her colourful geometric artworks are architectural interventions that transform the physical spaces they are situated within. Her new piece ‘Meeting Points’, commissioned by Artwalk Wakefield, is composed from translucent coloured vinyls and will be installed onto the skylight windows of Wakefield’s Ridings Shopping Centre.
A Walk in Wakefield is a new permanent mural in The Ridings Shopping Centre, created by artist Beth Morgan, inspired by the natural landscapes around Wakefield. Commissioned by Artwalk Wakefield.
Look Up Westgate is a project led by Edgelands Arts on behalf of the Westgate Heritage Action Zone. Funded by Wakefield Council and Historic England. Communities from across the Westgate area have worked with Edgelands Arts to create images of buildings along the street. These have been turned into a series of coasters and vinyl window stickers, which can be seen and collected in various locations on Westgate and the immediate vicinity.
