HERE&NOW18: Besides, it is always the others who die

Venue: Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, Dates: September 1st – December 8th, Free.

Carrion: Episode 1

Meet Carrion; a mythical chimeric creature who will delve into ancient wisdoms, the mess of the present and polymorphous complexity of a speculative future. This scintillating performance presented by Justin Shoulder compels its audiences to consider post-human embodiment in our state of planetary disarray, and is part of PICA’s HyperPromethus presentation.

Venue: Connections Nightclub Dates & time: December 7th and 8th, 8:30pm

Venue: Japingka Gallery Dates: September 21st – November 6th

Lectures & talks

 

Hyperprometheus: Artist Talks

Following PICA’s groundbreaking Hyperpromethus presentation (which seeks to re-contextualise Frankenstein for a new millennium), hear from contributing artists Nina Sellars and Tarsh Bate at this exclusive talk diving into our collective understanding of what it is to be human, living, natural, function, valid or valued.

Venue: PICA, Date: October 20th, Free but RSVP essential.

Goddesses, Mistresses and the Tradition of Sixteenth Century

Join Honorary Research Fellow Jane Southwood for an engaging analysis of a series of sixteenth century French paintings and sculptures that draw upon mythological, literary and iconological sources to portray mistresses of reigning French monarchs. This talk will also delve into the ‘margins’ of these works; examining and introducing a uniquely feminist perspective.
