A series of University lectures will be taking place in Loughborough’s town centre on Thursday 28 and Friday 29 April. This event is part of Something & Son’s Market Town commission Market Lectures, where Loughborough University and the market are trading places. The Market Lectures will be preceded by a University Market on Wednesday 27 April, when market traders will be coming to the University campus for a special market day.
Something & Son have been playfully exploring the relationship between the two things that Loughborough is most famous for: the day-to-day activity of its markets and its University. These two elements from the town are usually quite separate and the design collective has created a unique installation which brings them together. A symbolic structure will be constructed which functions as both a market stall and a small lecture theatre and will form the centrepiece of both market and lectures. This structure will be produced by a local welder and can be used as a place for the trade of goods as well as knowledge.
More information about the lectures for these days will be released these coming weeks on the Radar website: arts.lboro.ac.uk/radar
