Artists Talk & BYO lunch – Friday November 8th 2013 12pm (noon)

As a complement to the exhibition  LIVING IN 10 EASY LESSONS, Sporobole is happy to welcome Linda Duvall et Peter Kingstone for a presentation of their work and art practice.  The artists, along with their career, hold degrees in sociology, philosophy and cultural studies. They will address the process of the community- based  nature of their work.

Living in 10 Easy Lessons is the title of a video project by the artists Linda Duvall and Peter Kingstone, who collaborated on a series of interviews with street-involved women. Using a minimalist and sensitive documentary approach, the two artists shot, in black and white, a series of encounters in a neutral, uncontrived space. This is where these women conveyed to Linda Duvall or Peter Kingstone ten skills they had learned on the ground over time.
