Art vs. Art discourse

15:20 Public talk  

In this publication, Jack Segbars investigates the relationship between the work of art as exhibited visual image and the discourse that surrounds it, as well as the role of the artist in relation to the curator, the institution and art criticism that make up that discourse.

The Rondom project includes an exhibition and a publication with contributions in the light of the interchange and overlap between linguistic context and visual image. Artists who see textual discourse as their working terrain and subject matter are matched with policymakers, critics and theorists whose role is not usually visible in the final art product. The core question is where artistic space is located and whether aesthetic stamina can withstand far-reaching social embedding and instrumentalisation.

This event is free but reservation is required. Please contact Clare Butcher to add your name to the guest list.
