Lunch in the Talbot Rice Gallery; James Clegg Talks About ‘Trading Zone’
Trading Zone is a group exhibition that stems from a desire to explore the diversity of student practice taking place across the University of Edinburgh. Led by a process of discovery, it evolved through an engagement with the work of over 300 students, including those from disciplines as seemingly far apart as Archaeology, Business, Design and Music.
The resulting exhibition includes a fabulous array of different artworks, including virtual data-landscapes retrieved from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, mushroom built Gothic spires and explorations of the earth-born cracks and tangles of our language systems. Featuring students of Architecture, Art, Contemporary Art Practice, Fine Art, History of Art, Creative Writing, Digital Composition and Performance, Music, Creative Music Practice, Design, Design Informatics and Intermedia.
The talk will cover
Talbot Rice Gallery’s current student exhibition Trading Zone.
The importance of contemporary artists using every technology and material available to them in order to engage with the diversity of our world.
The importance of interdisciplinary learning and discovery.
The themes of some of the works in the exhibition including: The intelligence of organic cultures, the history of the Gallery’s architectural space, post-apocalyptic LIDAR images and the embodied evolution of design ideas.
Lunch will kindly be provided by the Talbot Rice Gallery as arranged by James…
