UNIVERSITY TO HOST ART SYMPOSIUM

 

The University of Lincoln is to host a one-day symposium that aims to highlight the strategies of making art as a process of work.

 

The day will consist of art-related discussions and debates, as well as a series of papers presented by university academics. It will explore the theme of work as a form of artistic expression.

 

Speakers include lecturers Neil Maycroft, Phil Eastwood, John Lord and Ian Waites, all academics from the university’s Fine Art and Design departments, as well as guest speakers from other universities including Nottingham Trent and Coventry.

 

“There is a variety of papers being presented by the speakers, all of which shall be published and available to delegates at the end of the symposium,” said John Plowman, senior lecturer in Fine Art and the organiser of the event.

 

“The day is being funded by the Art, Architecture and Design faculty’s research budget and aims to explore the theme of art as a work process through lively, informative debates and discussions.”

 

The convention will take place on Saturday 30th October at 9am, with a welcome talk commencing at 9.30am, and will be held in the Co-op Lecture Theatre in the main academic building of the university’s Brayford Pool campus.

 

The day will conclude at 3.15pm with a guest lecture by writer and curator David Lillington, who is a regular writer of art-based publications.

 

The day is open to everyone, and places can be booked by email: conferences@lincoln.ac.uk, or phone on 01522 886407.
