The Culture of Performance

Series: Evening Lecture
Date: Wednesday 28 January 2015
Time: 18:00
Venue: Lecture Hall
Running time: 93 mins

A roundtable discussion about the culture of performance, events, space, entertainment and of course the legacy of Mark Fisher and his time at the AA.

This event will launch the Mark Fisher Scholarship which has been established in memory of Mark Fisher, a graduate and inspiring teacher at the Architectural Association who sadly died in June 2013. The Scholarship has been initiated by James Fairorth and Tait Towers, who worked closely with Mark on ground-breaking music performance events around the world.

Mark combined his skill as an architect and designer with a passion for rock and roll, pioneering the modern stadium performance and with it reimagining what we understand as the architectural spectacle.

The Scholarship will be given annually for the equivalent of one full year’s school fees in support of a student of exceptional talent and interest in the intersection of architecture, performance, media and engineering.

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