The Performativity of Painting: Artists’ Talk

    Activity: Other activity typesPublic engagement and outreach - festival/exhibition


    The Creative Conversations initiative (part of Creative Professional Digital Arts), The University of Greenwich, hosted at The Stephen Lawrence Gallery, and funded the open Q&A event, talk and viewing of the exhibition with exhibiting artists present 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?
    Chaired by the curator and participating artist and speaker, Alex Roberts.
    Creative Conversations is a programme of events and research, investigating the relationship between creativity and commerce in the creative industries.  They are anchored in, but not confined to, the local environment of Greenwich and SE London.
