Acclaimed artist duo Karen Guthrie and Nina Pope share how they achieved one of the most physical and ambitious contemporary art projects seen in Cambridge, in the creation of a model village of the future NW Cambridge development.
This project was shared with AccessArt as part of the 40 Artist Educator Project, funded by Arts Council England, aiming to highlight and celebrate artist-led teaching and facilitation.
Tomorrow, Today by Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie
The large-scale landscape intervention Tomorrow, Today emerged from the artists’s residency with the Cambridge University Archeology Department, part of the first group of residencies conducted around the new NW Cambridge development and managed by the Contemporary Art Society (CAS) and InSite Arts. The artists specifically worked with the Cambridge Archaeological Unit, which conducted the survey and dig prior to the Development going on site, and also researched other archaeological areas including soil archaeology and contemporary archaeology.
