The Performativity of Painting - Artists' Talk, Saturday 10 February

The Performativity of Painting, The Stephen Lawrence Gallery, University of Greenwich Galleries. Opening hours: Tuesday - Friday 11am - 5pm, Saturday 11am - 4pm, until 16 February 2018

The Performativity of Painting, Artists' Talk,
University of Greenwich Galleries and Creative Conversations

‘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 10th 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 participating artist and curator Alex Roberts.
