Jade Montserrat: Instituting Care

This installation of work by Scarborough-based artist Jade Montserrat, consisted of large-scale charcoal drawings made directly on the walls of the gallery. The drawings offered fragmented reflections of the artists experience navigating her way through education, working as an artist and living in the UK. Amongst the drawings sat a structure that will be host to a series of events relating to care and education.

Instituting Care was developed in 2018 whilst Montserrat worked as the artist in residence at Bluecoat, Liverpool’s Centre for the Contemporary Arts. Whilst in residence, Montserrat met local artists, educators and activists in Liverpool, some of whom facilitated related events during the exhibition.
