The School of The Arts is delighted to announce the first in what is intended to become a regular programme of public lectures at Avenue Campus by internationally renowned figures in the art world. This first series, entitled âArticulation', will take place in March and includes talks by land artist and sculptor Chris Drury, photo artist John Hilliard and painter Ian McKeever.
The talks have been organised by John Harper as part of an ongoing programme to promote debate on the issues, actions and attitudes employed in the diversity of contemporary fine art practice.
Each speaker will be talking about their own work in the context of issues related to the public understanding of contemporary art. What is it? How do we relate to it? And why should we try to understand it? Each talk will be followed by a question and answer session and last for 90 minutes.
Chris Drury - Tuesday 6 March 6.30pm-8pm
John Hilliard - Tuesday 13 March 6.30pm-8pm
Ian McKeever - Tuesday 20 March 6.30pm-8pm
The talks will take place in the main hall at Avenue Campus from 6.30pm-8pm and are open to anyone. Tickets cost £3 / £2.50 concessions, or free to University of Northampton students - to reserve a ticket, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01604 893046.
