Event description

Description

Gesture, Trace and Performance is an interdisciplinary conference, bringing together key thinkers from a range of disciplines to consider ideas around movement, representation and communication in contemporary society. The one-day conference reflects on the exhibition of the same name currently accessible at the Herbert Read Gallery, UCA to unfold the topic further.

Gesture, Trace and Performance is organised around three thematics: disappearance, masks and becoming. ‘Disappearance’ focuses on the ephemerality of recorded memory via sound or image; ‘masks' expresses a presence that is invisible yet substantive, thinkable through touch; and ‘becoming' concerns the mediation between bodily drawings and the cohabitation in holding a certain space through limited time.

Guest speakers include Leah Fusco (Kingston University), Dr. Robert Luzar (Bath University), and Dr. Wiebke Leister (London College of Communication, UAL), among others.
