Art Writing at Spike Island

Spike Island in Bristol are the lastest in UK production agencies, studios and galleries to be looking at the artistic practice of art writing. Others are the Whitechapel, the ICA and Resonance FM. An interesting trend; one Open Dialogues is very excited about!


Art + Writing Panel Discussion: Maria Fusco, Matt Price, Michael Dean, David Trigg
Sat 02 May, 1-4pm Associates Space

This event has been programmed by Sovay Berriman (Associate Artist) and Megan Wakefield (Researcher: PhD Spike Island/UWE) and takes place as part of Spike Open Studios 2009. This panel discussion is the first in a series of seminars exploring the spectrum of 'art writing', a term that no longer simply describes criticism, catalogue essay or document. This first debate will seek to investigate the changing trajectories of written texts as they orbit and intersect contemporary art.
