Final in a series of events marking the exhibition 'Context is Half the Work. A Partial History of the Artist Placement Group' at Summerhall (Aug - Oct 2016).
‘There is a Work in the interpretation of the Work’, from Craig Richardson’s ‘John Latham: Incidental Person’ (2007, pp 27-31).
An interdisciplinary ‘bing’ seminar and public discussion in four parts, led by artists Tim Collins and Reiko Goto and landscape architect Ross McLean.
I. Art and Aesthetics
II. Landscape and Ecology
III. Heritage & Community
IV. Group Discussion.
The event will involve a range of speakers from across the arts and humanities, social and physical sciences to invite debate in regard of the Greendyke and Niddry bings that artist John Latham described as ‘Niddrie Women’ and the ‘Heart.’
The acclaimed exhibition curated by Naomi Hennig and Ulrike Jordan in dialogue with APG co-founder Barbara Steveni debuted at Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, Berlin in 2015 (12 September – 8 November). The second iteration of the exhibition staged at Summerhall is the first Scottish exhibition giving an overview of this seminal group and related works, and is reworked in order to highlight the APG projects that took place in Scotland.
