Critical Focus: Study of an Arts Centre

  • Mon, 26 Mar 2018
  • 6.30 PM - 8.00 PM
  • Tickets: Free. Booking advised

As In the Peaceful Dome enters it's final weeks, PhD student Laura Harris (Univeristy of Liverpool, Sociology) introduces her research film that documents the construction of the exhibition, and the everyday social life of Bluecoat.

The film is the result of a collaboration between the University of Liverpool and Bluecoat. Philosopher in Residence (Dr Yiota Vassilopoulou) and Sociologist in Residence (Dr Paul Jones) have worked alongside Bluecoat to ask questions about the value, labour and social world that makes the art centre what it is. Laura's project carries on this persuit, focusing attention on the hiden details and work that sustain art spaces. What's more, the use of the film camera in social research mirrors some work in artists' moving image, blurring the lines between art and research.

Laura will introduce the film, which will be followed by a response from Dr Paul Jones. The audience is invited to contribute to a conversation about the film, and what, and who, makes an arts centre.
