Time-Based Media in Conversation: How To Stop Worrying And Love (Running)
Wednesday, 26 February 2014 from 18:30 to 19:30 (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
On the eve of Valentine’s Day, let’s talk about love – specifically, why we should fall in love with running.
Join Kai Syng Tan in this wacky performance-lecture-cum-film-screening. The artist-researcher-cum-mover-(salt-)shaker-cum-PhD graduate from the Slade School will run through the ways in which running can empower us to re-imagine our reality.
The event takes place in UCL Art Museum, ground floor of the Wilkins building, Gower Street, University London College, WC1E 6BT
When & Where
UCL Art Museum
Over 10,000 works of art make up the collections of UCL Art Museum, from the 1500s to the present day.
Works separated by centuries are linked by a desire to experiment with new materials, theories, and reproduction techniques in order to produce new meanings, share ideas and inspire.
Since the museum has its origins as a teaching and research collection tied to the history of the Slade School of Fine Arts, the collections present a unique archive of art education. Alongside outstanding examples of works by old masters such as Dürer, Rembrandt, Van Dyck and Turner, the Museum holds examples of early works by pioneering artists of the 20th century such as Gwen John, Dora Carrington, Winifred Knights, Stanley Spencer, Augustus John, Ithel Colquhoun, Diana Cumming, Euan Uglo, Paula Rego, Anna Maria Pacheco all former Slade Students, as well as works by Slade Professors such as Henry Tonks and William Coldstream.
