The Almshouse Tempera Project is now half way to completion. You are invited to join us, to help us map out the project’s future direction during a day of informal presentations and discussions.
Wednesday, June 24th, 11am to 4pm
University of Nottingham
Room LG11 (lower ground, room 11)
The day will be split into two sessions.
Session 1, Looking Backwards, Looking Forward (11am – 1pm)
Session 1 will be led by the project co-ordinator Derek Hampson, who will outline what has been achieved to date before focussing on the forthcoming exhibition at Nottingham Trent University’s Atrium Gallery. The proposed title of the exhibition and the thinking behind it will be outlined. Project participants will then make a short presentation on how their contribution to the project is developing. There will then be a general discussion on how the exhibition’s theme might be supported and expanded by this practical and theoretical work.
Session 2, Translations (2 – 4pm)
The second session will focus on exploring the concept of ‘medium’, testing the proposition that working with a medium involves a process of translation, from one medium into another. The session will begin with a presentation by photographer Andy Lock who will discuss his photographic recording of architectural structures in terms of a translation from a built structure into a photographic image. Following this there will be a general discussion.
Tea and coffee will be provided, there is also an on-site café.
