Talk by key avant-garde conceptualists at University
Artists Michael Baldwin and Mel Ramsden will today (1 December) be talking about their current exhibition Portraits and a Dream at the University.
The artists, known as Art & Language, have been leading figures in the British avant-garde and the Conceptual Art movement since the 1960s. They will focus in their talk on their collaboration with the highly-regarded performance group Jackson Pollock Bar.
The talk, titled Jackson Pollock Bar and The Red Crayola, will mark the second month of the duos exhibition at the Universitys Studio 3 Gallery.
Studio 3 curator Ben Thomas said: Few artists have explored so consistently and creatively the conditions and meanings of contemporary art as Art & Language. It is wonderful to be able to display their art on campus, and to have the opportunity to hear them discuss their practice.
Jackson Pollock Bar is a performance group founded in 1993 and based in Freiberg, Germany. Its work is concerned with the recreation of a significant talk, interview or panel discussion from art history.
Art & Language: The Jackson Pollock Bar and The Red Crayola, will take place at the Universitys Keynes College Lecture Theatre 6, Canterbury campus, today (1 December) from 5-7pm. Entry is free.
