Between Boundaries: Fluxus and Japan (Saturday 1PM - 4PM)

Description

The international creative network, ‘Fluxus,’ founded by designer George Macuinas in 1960, included several participants from Japan. Fluxus members and associates experimented with many different and radical forms of art, music and related disciplines. The contributions made by the Japanese participants were significant, yet have not been explored as thoroughly as they might have been, partly due to the language barrier, and partly due to a Euro-American-centric bias in art-historical writing in the past.
This workshop will introduce Fluxus as a movement and go on to explore the background and impact of the Japanese participants’ work. We will discuss Fluxus events in Japan in the 1960s and beyond. Finally, we will perform and even write some Fluxus-style works ourselves!

The Politics of Landscape Art (Saturday 10:30AM - 4:30PM)

Description

The American contemporary visual artist, Julie Mehretu states ‘There is no such thing as just landscape. The actual landscape is politicised through the events that take place on it’.


Do we agree with this statement? The current exhibition at Tate Liverpool, Radical Landscapes, provides us with the ideal opportunity to consider whether landscape can indeed be ‘just’ landscape.


This one-day course explores how artists engage with our diverse experiences of land and how it is shaped, contested and celebrated. Utilising the wide-ranging and thought-provoking artworks on display in Radical Landscapes, we will discuss context, culture and content of landscape art.
