On 23rd October , The school of Art , Design & Performance offers to the public its first of its Art , Design&Performance (ADP) lecture series followed by Hanover Projects Presents forth exhibition of the semester with its short Video Festival. The ADP Lecture Series is hosted by UcLan’s Contemporary Art History& Theory lecturer Dr.Matt Gregory and the Hanover Projects Video Festival has been organised by gallery co-ordinator Victoria Lucus , a Fine Art lecturer here at UcLan .
The ADP Lecture Series has invited a series of guest speakers to deliver lectures and performances in response to the theme WORK/RE-WORK: Revision, Appropriation and Re-contextualisation in Contemporary Art, Design and Performance.
Their website states ‘the 2013/14 lecture series focuses upon the notions of appropriation, revision and recontextualisation as critical devises in contemporary art, design, performance and visual culture. From the Readymades in modern art history to sampling in popular music, from bricolage in fashion (punk and the DIY aesthetic) to postmodern architecture and design, taking existing things and giving them new meaning has been, and remains, paramount as a critical practice in contemporary art, design and performance. The 2013/14 lecture programme aims to examine this methodology and mindset from a variety of critical perspectives and across a range of creative disciplines’ . The series program can be found at http://www.adplectureseries.co.uk/the-201314-programme.html
The ADP Lecture Series offers a free lecture programme invites designers, creative professionals and international artists such as Aram Bartholl and Scott King, to deliver special guest lectures.
Kicking off the lecture series is George Barber on Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Adelphi Building ABTVI Lecture Theatre at 4:00pm.
