Marvin Gaye Chetwynd (b. 1973, London, UK) studied anthropology at UCL before studying Fine Art at the Slade School of Art and Royal College of Art in London. Chetwynd’s work spans performance, sculpture, painting, installation and video, each of which the artist infuses with elements of folk plays, street spectacles, popular culture and Surrealist cinema. Her performances are characterised by the use of large groups of performers - many of them friends and relatives – and - typically feature handmade costumes, props and collaged environments. She has performed and exhibited internationally, and was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2012. Chetwynd will talk about her wider practice including her recent residency in Bristol as part of the project ‘Resilience Lab’.  

Chetwynd is currently in the midst of a year-long series of performances and exhibitions in Bergen, hosted by Bergen Assembly 2016 and curated by PRAXES. Solo exhibitions and performances include those at Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn, Germany (2016); Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham, UK (2014); Studio Voltaire, London, UK (2014); and The New Museum, New York, USA (2011-12). She has been involved in numerous group exhibitions such as ‘20 – An Exhibition in Three Acts’, Migros Museum, Zürich, Switzerland (2016); ‘Bergen Assembly’, Bergen, Norway, (2016); the Edinburgh Art Festival, Edinburgh, UK (2015); the Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art, Göteborg, Sweden (2013); and ‘Performance Now: The First Decade of the New Century’, various venues, USA (2012-14).
