Dance First, Think Later

David Elliott on Art From Elsewhere

Yang Zhenzhong, Let's Puff, 2002

Friday 9 October 2015

We are delighted to welcome the curator of Art from Elsewhere, David Elliott, who will talk about the ideas arising from the exhibition: What and where is elsewhere? Does art have a role to play other than being art itself? What are art museums for?

 

 

Following the talk, we would love you to join us at our our free exhibition preview from 6.00 - 8.00pm. All welcome.

Art from Elsewhere explores global change through the work of artists from around the world. Topical issues such as migration, trade and exchange, social tensions, life in conflict zones and failed ideas of utopia are addressed.

Curated by David Elliott, Art from Elsewhere is a Hayward Touring exhibition supported by the Art Fund. It is part of the Harris Museum's Dance First, Think Later Contemporary Art Programme.

This talk is free but we would love you to make a donation to our charity, the Friends of the Harris Museum & Art Gallery (reg. charity 503726) who support our contemporary art programme.
