Date: Saturday 3 November 2018
Time: 10.30am – 12.30pm
Join Iain Morrison, Writer in Residence for John Hansard Gallery, for this writing workshop which will look at different approaches to creating a written response to artwork, using selected pieces from the gallery’s Time After Time exhibition.
Time After Time is curated by Professor Stephen Foster and reflects on the Gallery’s history and programmes. Bridging both its previous university campus and new city centre home, this exhibition re-examines some key site-specific installations thatwere shown at the Gallery between 1993 and 2016 by artists Caroline Bergvall, Victor Burgin, Hamad Butt, John Latham, Charlotte Posenenske, alongside a new work by Walter van Rijn. Time After Time examines the long-term value of temporary or transient works.
During this two-hour session, participants will have the opportunity to consider selected works in the exhibition together and write their own responses.
This event may be recorded for future marketing and promotional purposes.
