This launch event for the Art Writing Programme will explore the possibilities for art writing today. Authors, curators and editors will present new ways of writing, thinking and publishing on the visual arts. The focus for discussion will be on how texts can be produced, programmed and disseminated to create a knowledgeable enjoyment of contemporary art.
Speakers: Tom Jeffreys, Editor, The Learned Pig, Lizzie Lloyd, Writer published by Art Monthly, Greg Neale, Editor, Resurgence Magazine, Phil Owen, Curator, Tertulia and Arnolfini, Mary Paterson, Writer published by The Guardian, Patrick Langley, Writer published by The White Review.
