Come support the launch of the new book Art: Process: Change – Inside a Socially Situated Practice, by Dr. Loraine Leeson, Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries.
Leeson brings a practitioner’s insight to bear on socially situated art practice through a first-hand glimpse into the development, organisation and delivery of art projects with social agendas.
Issues examined include the artist’s role in building creative frameworks, the relationship of collaboration to participation, management of collective input, and wider repercussions of the ways that projects are instigated, negotiated and funded.
The book contributes to ongoing debates on ethics/aesthetics or art initiatives where process, product and social relations are integral to the mix, and addresses issues of practical functionality in relation to social outcome.
This event is free and all are welcomed to attend.
