Art, Memory and Place
Join us on Wednesday 14 September from 2-4pm for Art 360 Foundation’s first seminar on Art, Memory and Place at Turner Contemporary.
Join us on Wednesday 14 September from 2-4pm for Art 360 Foundation’s first seminar on Art, Memory and Place with speakers including:
- Matthew de Pulford and Katie Hare on the legacy of artist Lizzy Rose
- Sam Causer, Conservation Architect and Director of Margate-based architecture practice Studio Sam Causer
- Benjamin Sebastian, Co-Director of ] Performance S P A C E [
Further speakers to be announced.
The seminar poses the question: how does art allow us to think about memory and place?
We are asking audience members to bring an envelope containing their own response to this question. This could be a written or visual response, or an object or piece of ephemera that you are happy to share with others.
Speakers will explore art through the lens of place and environment, contextualising the memory of artists and communities amidst changing landscapes and townscapes. One of the seminar’s aims is that it will lead to the creation of a new British Art Network focused on curating, researching, and preserving the memories and histories of artist-led spaces.
The seminar will convene people and perspectives that can help reimagine the future of ‘place’, raising questions including:
- What and who ‘makes’ a place?
- What happens to the artist communities that use and come together in a space?
- If a place ceases to exist what’s lost? What can be kept?
- How vulnerable are culturally important places to destruction and erasure?
- How can places be preserved, shared and continue living?
The event will take place in person, in our Foyle Rooms, and a recording with closed captions will be made available online shortly after the event. Turner Contemporary is wheelchair accessible, with step-free access and a lift serving both floors.
