A new educational initiative launching this year as part of our annual Testing Ground for Art and Education, Testing Ground: Master Class invites leading international artists to share their expertise with a small group of emerging artists from around the country over a five day intensive, led by artist Doug Fishbone.

Join us each evening for a public lecture by the artists.
Tonight: Saskia Olde Wolbers

Saskia Olde Wolbers' video works draw on factual events to weave fictional first-person narratives with analogue imagery shot around handmade models often set in unstable environments.

She has exhibited widely including Secession Vienna, The Goetz Collection, Mori museum Tokyo, MOCA San Diego, The Hirshhorn Museum Washington DC, The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Tate Britain London. In 2003 she won the Baloise Prize at Statements Basel and in 2004 the Beck’s Futures Prize
