Performing Theory (Master Class with Lucy Parker)

Lucy Parker.jpg

This series of Master Classes aims to present a wide variety of approaches to the artistic production of ideas in audio-visual form.  We are inviting performance artists and moving image makers whose work (written, performed, filmed) manifests theoretical innovation.  The latter part of the 20th century produced body of Anglo-American writing and work that are recognised today as canonical as with Hollis Frampton, Maya Deren, Peter Gidal for example.  With this series we want to produce a sample of this kind of interplay between ideas and creating that are underway today.  In so doing, we hope to open the field of play between theory and works to create new conversations.

Prospective Speakers:  Michelle Williams Gamaker, Constanze Ruhm, Christopher Harris, Morgan Quaintance, Naeem Mohaiemen.

Upcoming dates include: 3 May, 24 May, 7 June, 14 June and 28 June.

Please join us for an artist Master Class with Lucy Parker, who will talk about her recently completed documentary.

Date: Friday 24 May
Time: 14:00 - 17:00

Venue: B35 Malet Street, Birkbeck
Bloomsbury, London,
