In this episode, Lara Thoms chats with artist Amy Spiers about art in public space including Gillian Wearing’s Dancing in Peckham and her own work with Catherine Ryan Closed to The Public (Protecting Public Space). They also question social distancing circles in parks and lament the current lack of queer dance parties.

APHIDS LISTENS is an alternative archive where artists share a work they’ve made, and a work they’ve loved.

APHIDS acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Boon wurrung peoples on whose lands we live and work. Sovereignty was never ceded and we pay our respect to past, present, and future Aboriginal elders and community, and to their long and rich history of artmaking on this Country.
