DD Day 2016 at HOME event outline
Throughout her career, Delia had a close affinity with the visual arts, working on BBC projects about artists including Henry Moore, Francisco Goya and Eduardo Paolozzi, and collaborating with visual artists like Yoko Ono and Madelon Hooykaas.
DD Day 2016 showcases this interplay between music and the visual arts, and will screen two exciting new donations of experimental art films to the archive, for which Delia provided the music.
We will also present two new creative responses to the Delia Derbyshire Archive by artists Mary Stark (film/live art) and Mandy Wigby (music).
The event will include a Q&A with the artists and filmmakers exploring the relationship of music and visual arts and Delia’s work across these disciplines. During the day, there will also be hands on family workshops and pop-up improvised performances, including live music from Janet Wolstenholme.
We are overjoyed to announce that we have the funding in place to create another Delia Derbyshire Day. Thanks to support from The Granada Foundation, Arts Council England and the University of Manchester School of Arts, Languages and Cultures Impact Support Fund. We are also most grateful for partnership support from HOME.
