Event description

Description

Experience what it’s like to be a student in our MA in Contemporary Art through an interactive session with Dr Pierre Saurisse, Senior Lecturer at Sotheby’s Institute of Art London campus.

Join Dr Saurisse for a lecture to be delivered at the Institute, followed by a study visit to a world-class contemporary art gallery in London. Get a taste of what you will learn during the MA programme, develop skills of observation and description and explore how themes are connected with artistic contexts and the networks in which art is created, bought, collected and exhibited.

Pierre Saurisse taught contemporary art at the Universities of Aix-Marseilles and Rennes. In 2007 his book on chance in European and American art of the 1960s, La Mécanique de l'imprévisible, was published by L'Harmattan. Since he wrote a chapter in a book on performance in 2010, his research has focused on this field. Saurisse has reviewed exhibitions and books for Beaux-Arts Magazine, Critique d'Art, and Parachute, and has had articles published in Territoires Contemporains (2012), Visual Culture in Britain (2013), and the first issue of Sculptures in 2014. He has also written on censorship and scandals in contemporary art in a chapter of the book L’Art des années 2000 (2012). A more recent piece on Rauschenberg and the Art of Recycling (2018) may be found following the link below: https://www.sothebys.com/en/articles/rauschenberg-and-the-art-of-recycling.
