Scenography - 4/7

Series: Friday Lecture Series
Date: Friday 7 February 2014
Time: 17:00
Venue: Lecture Hall
Running time: 54 mins

This year’s Friday lectures by Mark Cousins continue in Term 2. The lectures are concerned firstly with how works of art, drama and literature, as well as architecture, are presented in the world. There is a zone of transition between everyday life and the art object which marks the very difference between them. At the same time, this positioning of the art work is itself artful and its means are often drawn from other arts. This zone constitutes a culturally recognised form of presentation and recognition. The consequences for artistic theory are explored.

The lectures (five of) will take place at 5.00pm on the following Fridays in Term 2:

Friday 31st January

Friday 7th February (between the Type versus Typology Symposium events)

Friday 21st February

Friday 28th February

Friday 7th March

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
