Talks and symposia
Wednesday 17 September
6.15 - 7.30pm
Host: Klaas Hoek, Slade School of Fine Art
Participants: Claire Dorsett, Chloe Steele, Corinna Till and Eddie Farrell
In a recent interview Bruce McLean suggested that students and staff at the Slade should attach shoes to their knees and wander around in an awkward way, perceiving the world through the eyes of the famously diminutive French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
Bruce McLean taught at the Slade for over twenty-five years where he continually encouraged his committed following of students to look at things differently. For this evening's talk, a number of McLean's ex-students will present short talks, screenings and performances made in response to McLean's practice as an artist and tutor.
The evening will include a screening of 'Interview with Bruce McLean', 1994 by Sean Dower.
Organised in partnership with the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London.
£5, £3 concessions; free to members, booking essential
