Over the next few months, we’re excited to announce that artist duo Hipkiss & Graney will collaborate with Wednesbury residents to co-create MARKET, a new community artwork that celebrates the history and future of the town, and draws on the artists’ childhood on a market stall in Wednesbury and across the Black Country.
They’ll lead a series of painting and textile workshops where people will explore their connections with Wednesbury and work collectively to produce an art installation to be launched at a celebratory event in March 2022.

We Are Wednesbury is a cultural programme funded by Historic England and Sandwell Council as part of the Wednesbury High Street Heritage Action Zone.

About Hipkiss & Graney

Hipkiss & Graney’s practice is built on public workshops and co-creation. Their workshops are designed to remove art-making from a workshop context and deliver in a more traditional social context (village fete / pub quizzes).
They explore ideas around collectivity, community and counter-movements through socially engaged workshops, large-scale interactive installations and performative outputs. Their performances discuss political and environmental issues, often involving magic realism and fictional organisations.
