    Venue: Bishop Otter Campus: Room LO6

    Matthew Miller, co-Director of Fabrica, will talk about the gallery’s programme ethos, its track record of showing internationally renowned artists and its innovative approach to involving large numbers of visitors in its work. The presentation will outline the gallery’s exhibition process and how that seeks to draw connections between its building (a deconsecrated Regency church) and some of the broad philosophical questions that underpin our everyday lives.

    Siobhan Davies in Conversation

    Siobhan Davies

    Dance and Choreography

    Thurs 18th Nov 12-1pm

    Venue: Bishop Otter Campus: Room LO6
    Free admission

    In 2000 Siobhan Davies, one of Britain’s major contemporary choreographers, began to extend her dance work beyond traditional theatre venues by creating works for non-proscenium venues, even presenting dance as an “exhibit” within a visual arts setting (Minutes, in The Collection (2009) with the Victoria Miro Gallery). In the Siobhan Davies Studios she has situated dance as a vital force within the arts through her programme of interdisciplinary seminars and visual art exhibitions. Her new online digital library, the first of its kind, www.siobhandaviesreplay.com presents the trajectory of her work over a period of some 30 years. In conversation with Professor Sarah Rubidge, Davies will discuss developments in her work over the last ten years.
