Organised by the Centre for Practice Based Research in the Arts, this series of lectures aims to blur the boundaries between the formal lecture and artistic performance, offering both creative practitioners and academics the opportunity to experiment with new ways of presenting their ideas and their work. All events are free. Please see the gallery website for further information on each event.

This performance lecture is preceded by another: James Frost: Chance and the Readymade, from 5 - 6pm
