Curating Language Acts

Friday 25 September, from 10:30am.

A one-day symposium on the specific problems posed to curators and art historians by language-centred art works and language-led modes of art making.

Taking their firsthand curatorial experiences with modern and contemporary art as a starting point, three renowned art historians will reflected upon and discuss the theme:

Professor Christa-Marian Lerm Hayes, University of Amsterdam.

Dr Luke Skrebowski, University of Cambridge.

Professor Sarah Wilson, Courtauld Institute of Art.

The event is a public seminar geared at developing thoughtful conversations amongst academic and non-academic researchers and makers interested in the practices, criticisms, theories and recent histories of contemporary art. All are welcome.

Venue and booking information to follow.

‘Curating Language Acts’ marks the launch of the Artists’ Writings and Publications Research Centre* in the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds.

The AWP website and programme will be published in 2016.

*AWP is Co-Directed by Simon Lewandowski, Chris Taylor and Nick Thurston
