Telemetries is the National Sculpture Factory’s New international lecture series which begins with Reclaiming Artistic Research – A Lecture by Lucy Cotter.
In her recently published volume Reclaiming Artistic Research (Hatje Cantz, 2019) Lucy Cotter argues that artistic research needs to be salvaged from the shadows of academic definitions and institutional debates.
In this lecture she will foreground how art’s ways of knowing and unknowing open up through attention to form, through play, and through the ability and desire to question the terms of the many discourses it engages with, rather than providing supplementary knowledge. Challenging the bias towards linguistic articulation, she will highlight how ideas emerge through material, conceptual and embodied ways of working and celebrate the stubborn singularity of artistic thinking.
This series is free for all.
