Grace Denton (she/her) is an artist and writer based in Newcastle upon Tyne, and currently in her third year of a practice-based PhD at Northumbria University. Her practice encompasses video, performance, text and textile-based installation. Her conceptual focus is the language of sovereignty, and how this relates to her recently diagnosed ADHD.
As part of her research she began hosting Making Time with fellow neurodivergent artist and researcher Jo Hauge. This weekly online session borrows the format of a co-working session to enable the group’s participants to understand and make use of time, and do something (or nothing) with it. The meeting is open to any neurodivergent artists, writers and researchers who might find it useful – more info on how to join here. This group is supported by Northumbria University and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.
Grace also co-runs The Wardrobe – a clothing resource and safe space for anyone who is trans, non-binary, genderqueer, intersex, or who otherwise feels unsafe in standard shopping environments. The space has been running for nearly a year at The NewBridge Project and can be booked for in-person or virtual appointments. More info here.
While in residency at Cove Park she is looking to achieve a period of focused work away from the city, and devise several performances to camera that will feed into a new moving image work funded by Arts Council England.
