29th March - Somatic shifts - Research Student Conference 2017

Somatic Shifts: the body and beyond in creative and critical research

Research Student Conference and Exhibition
University for the Creative Arts – Rochester Campus
Conference date: 29 March 2017
Exhibition dates: 13 March – 5 April 2017

This one-day conference and associated exhibition, organised by UCA research students, will critically engage with a variety of methods and practices in creative art and design research that examine the limitations and potential of the human body.  The objective of this conference is to exchange possibilities and deductions about how art and design research can re-envision the body’s capacity to exist and disappear in the world.

The conference will be followed by an evening reception in the Zandra Rhodes Gallery.

The keynote speech will be delivered by Professor Simon O'Sullivan who is Professor of Art Theory and Practice at Goldsmiths.  He is a theorist and artist working at the intersection of contemporary art practice, performance and continental philosophy.

Attendance at the conference is free and lunch will be provided.
Booking is available through our online store

Early booking is essential as places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
