‘An experience of an artwork is an embodiment of space, within the work and around the work – the experience of the temporal’[1]

The Creative Conversations initiative and University of Greenwich Galleries invite you to join the artists of the current Stephen Lawrence Gallery exhibition, on the afternoon of Saturday the 10th of February, to view and experience the work and to discuss the performative nature of painting.

What is the relationship between the artists and their artwork? What role does the gallery space serve in the staging and meaning of the work? How does the ‘framing’ of the gallery space alter the experience of the viewer? How can an artwork behold a viewer? How can a curation of works create thoughtful dialogue individually and as a collaboration?

These are some of the topics that will be considered in an open forum with the artists Tobias Buckel, Liz Elton, David Lock, J.A. Nicholls, Selma Parlour, James Pimperton, Rebecca Molloy guided by curator Alex Roberts.

We look forward to seeing you,

The Creative Conversations and The Stephen Lawrence Gallery Team

‘Recitativo’ Performance by David Ryan and Ensemble

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

Recitativo – Fragments after Lucretius and Negri is a live performance that examines the relationship between the speaking voice (as a kind of narration) and the possibility of ‘wrapping’ this narration with both sounds and images. Central to this project is the creation of a spoken text that interweaves aphoristic statements from Lucretius’ philosophical and epic poem De Rerum Natura (‘On the Nature of Things’) and, as a contemporary intervention, Antonio Negri’s political reworking of these ideas in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

This event takes place at the Stockwell Street building in Greenwich and is held in association with Granular: The Material Properties of Noise exhibition and the Granular Colloquium.

Performing: David Ryan, William Crosby, Kelcy Davenport, Cristina Grifone, Justyna Latoch, and Joe Zeitlin.

While this is event is free, places must be booked in advance HERE, where booking information for the Granular colloquium is also available.

More information about the performance can be found at the dedicated Recitativo website
