Tuesday 24 March 2015
Time: 10am to 1pm
Venue: CSM, Room KX D119
Presentations by 3 members of staff/visiting scholars:
Erika Tan (4D Pathway tutor at Central Saint Martins) will speak about her current research for her next film, focusing on ‘minor exhibition histories’ through the figure of a forgotten Malay weave/performer within the Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1924.
Maria Iñigo Clavo (visiting research fellow in Exhibition Studies, from the University of São Paulo) will reflect on how to display history. What happens when you rub a work of contemporary art up against one from the colonial era, or against an ethnographic artefact?
Michelle Sommer (visiting PhD candidate in Exhibition Studies, from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul) will speak about her current research into contemporary practices of ‘errancy’ in Brazilian art, reflecting on artistic proposals for which being in motion is a fundamental condition. The leading question is: how to exhibit an art that escapes the frame of an exhibition, or how is it possible to write new exhibition narratives to discuss these artworks?
Places are limited, so please contact Dr Lucy Steeds if you are interested in attending:
