This event is Part of the Guest Lecture Series – Working with Communities collection
Tony Wade is a Wakefield-based artist who explores the emotional impact landscapes can have on humanity. He believes that our interactions and relationships with landscape, both urban and rural, can provide magical experiences, only if we look.
Wade graduated from Bretton Hall College, Leeds University, with a BA Fine Art in 1986. Wade’s practice investigates the infra-ordinary and looks for ways – through painting, sculpture, installation, light and music – to explore and share those experiences. Many of Wade’s projects involve communities as co-collaborators, working together to find ways of exploring nearby landscapes and celebrating what we find.
