Coming June 2015: Yelena popova
Yelena Popova is a creative artist in painting and video. She will be resident at Upton until late 2015, working with volunteers on the challenges of keeping Lord Bearsted's art collection during World War II, discovering how a collection reflects the attributes of a period and researching what happens to it in wartime. Her resulting artwork will feature in an exhibition from June 2015. Yelena graduated in MA painting at the RCA in 2011 and in 2014 was shortlisted for the Arts Foundation Award in Painting.
