PSL and theartmarket present
SYMPOSIUM: A QUESTION OF SPACE
How is there space for artists in our cultural landscape?
Thursday 21 May 2009
at PSL [Project Space Leeds]
Whitehall Waterfront, 2 Riverside Way, Leeds LS1 4EH
£10/£7.50 (including refreshments and lunch)
This symposium is part of a six month sequence of events and activities at
PSL comprising the exhibitions 195 Miles (in partnership with Whitechapel
Gallery) and Morphic Resonance (in partnership with theartmarket); a new
series of peer critiques; plus individual performances and activities in the
space at Whitehall Waterfront. This programme is an exploration of
artist-led activity and the development of ‘project spaces’ nationally and
Questioning the notion of innovation and current terminology this symposium
asks: do words or phrases such as ‘artist-led’ and ‘emerging’ genuinely
represent new movements or are they merely a relabeling of older concepts?
What space is there for the artist - physically, intellectually and socially
– in the contemporary cultural landscape?
With presentations from Kerry Harker (PSL), Silver Mawson, Miles Thurlow
(Workplace Gallery), Clarissa Corfe, (Castlefield Gallery), Amy Stephens and
Rory Macbeth, Zoe Sawyer (theartmarket)
