Visual Cultures in Scotland and Argentina: an interchange

I have been involved in the organising of a seminar by the University of Stirling (Centre for Scottish Studies; Languages and Literature; Social Science) and the University of Edinburgh (Department of Sociology).

The Argentinian artist and scholar Syd Krochmalny will be in dialogue with Simon Yuill, a Scottish artist and writer.

This seminar will bring together artists, academics and interested others from Argentina and Scotland in an exchange around contemporary developments in visual culture. The focus is the relationship of visual art to local communities and broader cultural institutions at a time of uncertainty, debate and change in both countries, in broad terms and specifically in relation to cultural policy.  The seminar is being chaired by Scott Hames and Sarah Wilson from the University of Stirling.

Thursday 25 April, 5-7pm

Seminar Room 3, Chrystal Macmillan Building, 15a George Square, Edinburgh, EH8 9LD (just off Middle Meadow Walk)

All are most welcome!

A poster with more details is available to download here (PDF).

Whilst in Scotland, Syd Krochmalny will also be involved in an art installation under the heading The Naked Soul, exploring issues of freedom and control.  I will post more details about this at a later stage.

Update, 27.4.2013 I wrote a short piece about this event on my photography blog.
