Limoncello - 'Confessions of a Critical Writer' - 29 September

Image: Open Dialogues

'Confessions of a Critical Writer' is a talk by Rachel Lois Clapham
and Mary Paterson as part of the Limoncello Punctuation Programme 29
September 7pm.

Limoncello's punctuation programme is a series of lectures,performances and events held between gallery exhibitions. The programme offers the gallery artists and the people around them a site to try out ideas. If as JG Ballard has claimed, short stories are the loose change of the literary world, then the punctuation programme events are 'looking after the pennies', although in a non-fiscal way as they are non-commercially viable work within a commercial context.

Open Dialogues works on the premise that artists and people who write about art belong to the same social and professional networks, share the same interests and have common goals. Acknowledging this context,Open Dialogues asks how critical writing can develop as a practice today. How can writers be critical?

For this talk, Open Dialogues will discuss a research focus concerning a new model of critical writing by using personal experiences or 'confessions' as case studies.

This event is a follow-up to Mary Paterson, Rachel Lois Clapham and Rebecca May Marston’s ‘Writing Live’ programme during Performa 07, which was kindly supported by Arts Council England.
