The Garage Open Lecture Series: Bedwyr Williams 

Tuesday 2nd February

5pm

TG006, The Garage Studios, University of Worcester.

The Fabrication Research Group is delighted to announce the start of a new series of talks by contemporary artists at University of Worcester’s Garage Studios. The series gets off to an excellent start this Tuesday 2nd February with acclaimed artist Bedwyr Williams.

Williams, who represented Wales at the Venice Biennale in 2013, exhibits his work internationally and will have a solo show of his work at the Barbican Centre in London in 2016. Williams works across various media including performance, video, sculpture and text, often bringing them together as larger installations. He is interested in the friction between the deadly serious and the banal aspects of modern life. Often he satirises the role of the artist and that of the curator against this backdrop creating cruel, absurd scenarios for them to appear in.

The Garage Open Lecture Series is a collaboration between the University of Worcester’s School of Art’s ‘Fabrication Research Group’ and Meadow Arts in partnership with Worcester County Council and Worcester Arts Partnership. It presents a series of talks around aspects of research, fabrication and display.  This semester the visitors include: Bedwyr Williams, Alice Channer, Simon & Tom Bloor, Mike Cooter and Keith Wilson.

The talks take place at 5pm on Tuesdays in Lecture Room (TG008) at the University’s Garage Studios (behind Worcester News).

The talks are free and open to all, though booking is recommended for the public via sean.edwards@worc.ac.uk
