Karen Cunningham in conversation with Dominic Paterson
6th May | 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Please join us for this closing event for Karen Cunningham’s solo exhibition Deploying Culture. Karen will be in conversation with Dr Dominic Paterson, Lecturer in Contemporary Art at the University of Glasgow and Curator of Contemporary Art at the Hunterian Art Gallery.
Deploying Culture, a solo exhibition by artist Karen Cunningham, brings together three works: two new installations made in-situ specifically for our upstairs space and a recent moving image work Movable Type; Under Erasure, 2016, which will be showing in our downstairs screening space.
Cunningham’s choice and uses of materials allude to technological narratives and new critical thinking about how we produce, reproduce and relate to our material environment. Her work prompts us to question: How do we use particular combinations of matter to communicate? How and from where do we source the specific materials to do so? How do we display, handle, deploy and ultimately dispose of the materials that we engage with?
Our closing event is FREE, but ticketed. Please book a seat, either through Eventbrite or with us directly: firstname.lastname@example.org or 01848 331 000
