Description

Inaugural Lecture by Professor Alec Shepley.

Alec is Professor of Contemporary Art Practice, and Head of the School of Creative Arts at Wrexham Glyndŵr University.

Prior to his appointment at Wrexham Glyndŵr University in March 2016 he was Head of Lincoln School of Art & Design at the University of Lincoln.

Alec’s individual and collaborative research has attracted funding from the Arts & Humanities Research Council, the British Council, the Arts Council of England and the Arts Council of Wales and his work has been exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally, with examples held in a number of public and private collections in north America, Europe and Asia.

He has been an active participant in national and international artistic research seminars and conferences for several years and his individual and socio-collaborative art research has attracted funding from the Arts & Humanities Research Council, the British Council, the Arts Council of England and the Arts Council of Wales.

Through extending the language of painting and sculpture his works become more a means of encounter rather than an end in themselves, providing a document of art as social engagement.

Through intertwining reality and fiction he produces improvised sites that are dialectically linked replies to one another within the wider field of action.

This is a free event. There will be a welcome drinks reception from 5.30pm and there will be an opportunity for questions and answers at the end of the lecture.


Wrexham Glyndŵr University prides itself on its applied research – that is research which makes a difference to industry and communities regionally and nationally. Our Inaugural and Professorial Lectures aim to showcase and celebrate the academic excellence of the University’s professorial staff, and bring leading research and thinking to the wider community.

Our Inaugural and Professorial Lectures are open to all and free to attend. Each lecture is preceded by a welcome drinks reception, and there is an opportunity for questions and answers with the speaker at the end.
