SATURDAY 23 MAY: Symposium - 'Play Sense: Talking', Gerald Moore Gallery.

Matthew Cornford, Annie Davey, Ralph Dorey, Dean Kenning, Tara Page, Florian Roithmayr.

'Play Sense: talking brings together artists and researchers that explore the knotted seams between

learning, experience, image, object, language. This event seeks to explore how we can operate

between the act of learning and recording learning, as artists, students, teachers…'

Play Sense


A project I have co-curated with AIR - ten artworks on ten days over MAY on Granary Sqaure.

Unannounced Acts of Publicness intends to probe the meaning of ‘public’ in privately owned public

spaces, offering alternatives to the contemporary conditions of public space. See #unannouncedacts
