CRITICAL SPATIAL PRACTICE : A KEYNOTE ADDRESS BY JANE RENDELL
THURSDAY 26 MARCH 2009, 6PM
SOUNDINGS THEATRE, TE PAPA, WELLINGTON
Keynote lecture costs $15 waged / $10 unwaged
Coordinators of the One Day Sculpture Project, hosted by Massey University as a Litmus Research Initiative, are please to invite the Wellington architectural community to participate in the symposium and/or keynote lecture by Jane Rendell (Director of Architectural Research, The Bartlett, Faculty of The Built Environment, University College London and author of Art and Architecture: A Place Between (I. B. Tauris, 2006))
Her talk will examine the concept of ‘critical spatial practice’ (Rendell, Art and Architecture, 2006) with respect to site-specific art practice, curating and criticism. It will look at definitions of key terms such as site, space and place, as well as dialectical relations of site and non-site/ site and off-site.
“The ONE DAY SCULPTURE symposium brings together leading international curators, cultural theorists and historians, participating artists, writers and curators to address the principal ideas and contexts that have informed the development of the series. The symposium will consider the issues underpinning the commissioning and production of temporary place-responsive artworks in the public domain.”
