The third and final webinar in Bloc's Harsh Light series is a conversation about the complex, care-based approaches of the work at London's ActionSpace and the presumptions that unfairly prescribe the art produced by artists with disabilities.
Bloc Projects is a not-for-profit, artist-led space that’s been curating, commissioning, and providing space for new and established artists for over fifteen years. While the doors to the gallery remain closed, Bloc continues to make space for artists and dialogue around art – both online and outdoors.
This September Bloc Projects is launching Harsh Light, a series of webinars aimed at exploring the changing role and work of the visual arts in unprecedented times. Through conversation and different points of view, Harsh Light will look into the implications of the pandemic, Arts Council England's strategy and the Black Lives Matter movement for art workers and art worlds.
The Bloc Billboard, meanwhile, acts as an extension of the gallery, bringing fantastic new artwork to the street outside.

A mini outdoor gallery on the side of Bloc Projects' gallery, the Bloc Billboard currently presents work by Chinese-Scots artist Ben Yau. His research-intensive art practice explores global conflict, historical narratives and social tensions.
