MotorMouth is an informal group critique set up by Poppy Pitt of BV studios, hosted as part of the Motorcade/FlashParade programme and linked to the London crit 'Engine ChatChat,' founded by Elizabeth Murton of Core Gallery, Cor Blimey Arts. Both groups were initiated to encourage dialogue, exchange and possible collaborations between Bristol and London based Artists.
MotorMouth is a chance for artists to bring work to a group of peers for an informal crit based on constructive feedback and discussion.
How MotorMouth came about, and what is it for?
Elizabeth Murton and Poppy Pitt Studied at Goldsmiths University of London together. After graduating, Elizabeth started Engine ChatChat in 2007 to provide a place for people to talk about their art works in a constructive environment. Elizabeth is now working with Poppy to run MotorMouth in Bristol as part of an Engine ChatChat network. This set-up aims to encourage a network-platform across cities to encourage exciting discussion, collaborations, friendships and opportunities.
“We hope that the partnership between the two groups will provide opportunities for Bristol artists to travel to Cor Blimey in London and present their work, and for London artists to travel to Motorcade and do the same. We will also be setting up on line forums for continued and regular interaction between the groups.
"This will provide a platform for critical discussion and debate across cities, as well as opportunities for emerging artists to widen their artistic circles, create new opportunities and provide a space for artists to interact with, encourage and support each other."
