Kent School of Music and Fine Art in Chatham is very proud to announce a program of visiting artists, writers, filmmakers, curators and performers who will talk about their work on consecutive Thursdays for 10 weeks commencing from the 9th October 2014. These talks follow the success of the previous Visiting Artists’ Talks earlier in the year and the Autumn term’s lineup showcases female artists working in a variety of contemporary artistic fields. This program shows the astonishing breath and scale of contemporary artists practice. Each speaker is renowned in their own field and uses imagery, materials and processes differently to pose distinct and searching questions and to address the urgent concerns of our age.
Fiona Boundy, known curator and producer of Artlands North Kent, will be speaker at the next talk on the 16th October.
All talks are free to attend and are open to all. The programme for the term is as follows:
Ruth Ewan 9th Oct
Fiona Boundy 16th Oct
