On the occasion of Ulay: So you see me, Cooper Gallery is delighted to present an International Symposium.

Drawn from the historical and contemporary positions embodied in performance and participatory practices and reflecting on Ulay’s oeuvre, the symposium will bring leading international thinkers to Scotland to examine vulnerability, generosity, and relationality of the self to the other, the role of vulnerability in practices of resistance and the ethical role of art in social and cultural practices.

Speakers include: art historian and writer Dr Dominic Johnson, art historian, theorist, and critic Prof. Amelia Jones, architectural historian, cultural critic and art writer Prof. Jane Rendell, Ulay Foundation curator Tevž Logar and the artist Ulay.

Commissioned responses
Artists and writers Jude Browning, Amelia Bywater, Seán Elder, Kirsty Hendry and Alexander Hetherington have been invited to respond to Ulay’s distinct and varied practice. These responses will be presented live as part of the Symposium and text-based responses will also feature on Cooper Gallery’s Group Critical Writing website, a space that advocates for experimental, radical and critical writing about arts and culture in Scotland and beyond.
