CANCELLED Artist Talk: Kelly Large

Thu 1 March, 10:00am - 11:00am

Venue: Cope Auditorium, Edward Barnsley Building

Free / Just turn up

CANCELLED

Kelly Large’s multi-disciplinary practice engages with acts of public appearance and the agency attached to ‘being visible’; especially how different registers of visibility and public-ness are entangled with the social relations of art practice and its presentation. In both her artistic and curatorial practices she explores these ideas through producing and commissioning live work that uses forms of social choreography to reconsider the relationship between individual and collective agency. In her talk she will discuss the complexities of commissioning live and site specific works in public and private contexts.

Kelly currently works as an independent curator; and as a tutor on the Curating Contemporary Art programme at the Royal College of Art. Between 2013–2016 she was Curator: Public Programme at Zabludowicz Collection, where she produced performances by Helen Benigson, Martin Creed, Alexandre da Cunha, Andy Holden, Raúl de Nieves, Jack Tan and Katrina Palmer; and worked with Rachel Maclean, Heather Phillipson, Jon Rafman and Ryan Trecartin amongst others. Recent projects include Empathy Flows, an evening of spoken word exploring the promotion and consumption of emotion with newly commissioned work by artists and poets; and Fictions Are Realities To Come, a series of new performances intersecting real and virtual worlds.

Her work has been presented at Tate Modern, David Roberts Art Foundation, 52nd Venice Biennale, Eastside Projects, Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art, and MIMA.

Drawing on academic research from across the Social Sciences at Loughborough, Making it up: this moment of June investigates forms and relations of listening that (re)produce and are (re)produced by personal and public places, focusing on the interactions that might support people to perform music but are not in themselves musical.

Rebecca has brought together an ensemble of Loughborough musicians to reflect on these ideas and together they will trace boundaries of music, place and registers of listening, exploring how these might be brought within a performance. A public recording session will share the results, which will then re-sound in a playback programme on our Loughborough campus and in the town over the summer period.

This event is part of (re)composition, Radar's main commissioning strand for 2017/18, which explores how music makes place and places make music. The project draws on the research of Dr Allan Watson in Loughborough University's Department of Geography, and has expanded to engage with research across the Social Sciences.

Disturbing Space is a radio station and sound system on a custom bicycle which answers to no body, place or time. The bicycle, "Soon Reach" was developed by sound artist Xana in response to a series of workshops in Loughborough, Leicester and London around the themes of connecting through sound, displaced geographies and building free spaces to manifest joy.

Disturbing Space reflects on the power of pirate radio, textile printing and songs about movement, lullabies, rhymes and tales which elevate Black voices; creating a journey that is chosen by the traveller and fuelled by music.

"Soon Reach" will be pedalled through Loughborough and passers by are invited to meet with the station and contribute to the broadcast. Exact location details will be added here closer to the date. 

This event is part of (re)composition, Radar's main commissioning strand for 2017/18, which explores how music makes place and places make music. The project draws on the research of Dr Allan Watson in Loughborough University's Deparment of Geography, and has expanded to engage with research across the Social Sciences.
