Tend To It Closing Event

4.00 pm to 6.00 pm

Join us and the Tend To It artist in celebrating the end of the longest running TOMA cohort so far. We will have drop-in BINGO BIRO with Paige Ockendon, a debut performance by Maria Bird, and Milky Genes will be showing a new improvisational performance. Come along, soak up the atmosphere, and help us close this fantastic show in style.

Paige Ockendon’s BIRO BINGO
4:30-5:00pm
Family friendly rounds of Biro Bingo. All welcome! Find new combinations of art materials and things you might like to draw.
Take 3 x spins on the bingo machine to receive loose instructions on drawing tools, surfaces and subjects, to help you create something different each time.
Have as many free spins as you like and take your artworks home or add them to our Bingo Gallery Wall. Paige likes to celebrate shared experiences within her work, both as an artist and as
a producer based in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. Her own playful practice merges administration, internet humour and all things naff with video, performance and installation. Her work aims to connect people, be it through laughter, common ground, collective cringing or a shared surprise.


Maria Bird Performance
5-5:30pm
Maria is an executive assistant at a fortune 500 firm based in London. As an anticapitalist feminist anarcho queer Maria’s artwork explores identity crises, compromise, irony, transformation, acts of petty resistance and the grotesque.


Milky Genes Performance
5:30-6pm
Milky Genes is the alter ego of artist and musician Michael Paul Graham a Southend based artist who uses sound as an expressive tool to convey thought (though recently this work has become more digital and video based) well known for doing one off performances and bespoke DJ sets for receptive.
