Fine Art Lecture Series
We are delighted to invite Emily Jones to speak as part of the 2017 Fine Art Live Lecture Series.
Jones is currently exhibiting at First Continent in Balitmore, USA. Her solo exhibition, Just Us, uses commonplace materials to model archetypal forms. The natural world and its observable phenomena are translated several times over into an array of papier-mâché, gumdrops, and recycled containers.
- From: Thursday 26 October 2017, 5.15 pm
- To: Thursday 26 October 2017, 7.30 pm
- Location: Lecture Theatre 2, Newton building, Main Entrance, Nottingham Trent University, City Campus, Goldsmith Street, Nottingham, NG1 4BU
Can you build a bridge with gumdrops and toothpicks? Why does Penelope Cruz have four gold needles pierced through her ears? How would you organise collective life without representatives?
INCREASE THE AREA OF INVIOLABLE NATURAL RESERVES TO HALF THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH OR GREATER stone soup, hot honey, green lung, concept security, percussive hunting, and every living thing that creepeth upon the earth GO BEYOND MILITARY TERMS FOR HUMAN SECURITY (decarbonise prosperity).
