Listen to Jude and Alexandra’s conversation below: 

At Practise is a three-part performance and publication project conceived and led by Associate Programmer and artist Jude Browning. Developed from Pre-ramble (2019-2020), the series continues to explore rehearsal as a creative method and form. In June, August and October nine UK based artists, working across visual art, writing, and performance, will be invited to use the gallery as a rehearsal space and to share new work in development in front of a live audience. The artists’ work engages with writing and live modes of delivery, with a generative use of queer and feminist tactics to challenge how power and notions of embodiment can be understood and enacted.

Alongside the live event programme a three-part publication series will be produced with the support of David Dale Gallery and in dialogue with Yellow Back Books, a project platforming artist books in Cardiff. In addition, Yellow Back Books will co-host a publication launch event in Cardiff, and have commissioned Jessa Mockridge to lead an online artist workshop on the 29 May & 2 June 2021. A link to the workshop resources are available here.


Jude Browning is a Glasgow based artist and event programmer, interested in historical modes of public speaking and theatrical performance. Her artworks often take the form of monologues, which are self-authored, appropriated and misremembered. She has two main projects currently in development: a collaborative project with Corin Sworn which considers the ruining of garments of clothing as a tender form of empiricism, and a digital publication with Catalina Barroso Luque exploring the rant and modes of excessive speech.
