You Can’t be Serious: On the Pre-posterous Encounter With Art
2pm Weds 10 March, Fine Art Lecture Theatre
Garnett, theoretician and art critic, is co-editor of the recent Gest: Laboratory of Synthesis #1 (2008)
Initiated by a series of events and discussions during the exhibition ‘Gest’ — at the Stanley Picker Gallery, Kingston University, this book Gest: Laboratory of Synthesis, includes a range of essays and interviews bringing together philosophers, artists, theorists and critics to discuss new approaches to art writing. It operates in the widening gap between the mainstream art magazine and the academic journal in order to create new conjunctions and productive disjunctions between theory and practice out of which new voices and new modes of art writing emerge.
