Why go after Utopia? In the final instalment of the Paths to Utopia in conversation series, Neil Denny talks to Dr Rhys Williams, Andy Franzkowiak, creative producer of Paths to Utopia, and Karishma Rafferty, Utopia 2016 curator at Somerset House, about attempts in the arts to create Utopia. This event will be live streamed by online magazine this is tomorrow.
Paths to Utopia is a collection of new artworks, which are all collaborations between artists, architects, technologists and king’s academics. In a series of ten panel discussions lead by Neil Denny from Little Atoms, the Paths to Utopia in conversation series will give space for the collaborators of each work to come together and discuss their Utopian projects. Expect to hear about what inspired the myriad and diverging Utopian visions; how the process of collaborating changed and informed the outcomes, and more detail about the research behind these works and the ideas that they leverage.
Paths to Utopia in conversation: Curating Utopia is part of the programme for exhibition Paths to Utopia, produced by King's College London as part of Utopia 2016: A Year of Imagination and Possibility
