BxNU Symposium: Cloudscape Responding to the theme of memory in the work of Lorna Simpson

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


This Symposium was created in collaboration with BALTIC Centre of Contemporary Art, In response to an exhibition of Lorna Simpson’s work regarding issues of memory, trauma and the body. The symposium brought together eminent practitioners, artists and theoreticians in this field. Emerging from the research, practice and interests of three artists based at Northumbria University: Jane Arnfield, Christine Borland, and Sandra Johnston, and working with GemArts, a leading diversity arts organisation based in the North East, the symposium connects disciplines of visual, live and performing arts. This dynamic event foregrounded new and critically acclaimed performances alongside presentations and panel discussions, interfusing live experience with critical dialogue, to consider ethical questions of representation and responsibility in histories re-told.
