This Migration. The Role Of Migration In The Arts, Our Lives, Societies, And Our Future Histories24. Jun - 24. Jun 14 / ended The School Creative Centre
11am - 2pm
The School Creative Centre and 48:Eight Gallery present their 3rd annual Symposium
This year’s event will focus on issues within Migrations. With artworks from a number of local artists and talks and discussions from guest lecturers, we will examine the role migration plays within the arts and the greater realm of our everyday lives.
Resident artist Stephanie Rubin will present her work ‘Tracing Thames Chronicles’, a sculptural installation charting the histories of first, second and third generation Londoners.
Dr. Gary McKay is a research scientist at Float Research UK, a dedicated geo-spatial engineering firm specialising in remote sensing and digital cartography. He will be presenting his various projects and discussing the role of mapping, geopolitical borders and the way governments define, arrange and control borders.
Mary Goody, artist and art historian, will be presenting her talk ‘Borders, Boundaries, and Daisy Chains: artworks and productive strategies in an interconnected world'.
Local artist Jamie Griffiths will be presenting the first stage of her ongoing project IN and OUT (air & paper). This work examines the processing of our personal information, and how this process is translated into some form of data.
This exhilarating one day event on 24th June 2014, from 11 - 2pm (incl. lunch) is free as well as open to everyone, and we welcome and encourage an open and fearless discussion.
Exhibition continues until June 30th.
