Talks: Visiting Artists in Fine Art at the School of Music and Fine Art

LiberateTate_TBritain-2418

Artists from activist group Liberte Tate stage a performance in Tate Britain on the anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon explosion that killed 11 workers and released 4.9 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. A naked member of the group has had an oil-like substance poured over him by silent figures dressed in black and wearing veils, and is now lying in a fetal position on the floor in the middle of the exhibition Single Form. Dedicated to the human body, Single Form is one of a series of British Art Displays staged throughout the galleries of Tate Britain.

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
