Lisa Le Feuvre: Nauman and Failure

Lisa Le Feuvre, Head of Sculpture Studies at the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds will consider Bruce Nauman’s work through the idea of failure, thinking through how his productive use of repetition and error test the boundaries of sculpture.

Using frustrated communication, slips in language and processes of labour, Nauman consistently unpacks assumptions we use to find our place in the world. Taking the exhibition  as a starting point, this talk proposes failure as a means to
understand perception.

Talk by Anthony d’Offay

This is a unique opportunity to hear Anthony d’Offay, the founder of ARTIST ROOMS
and the most influential London gallerist of the 1980s and 1990s talk about his experiences within the art world and how his generous gift to the nation – in the form of ARTIST ROOMS – came about.

He  has represented some of the most significant artists of our time including Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Joseph Beuys as well as Bruce Nauman,  whose work is currently on show on the 2nd floor at the Harris until the 24th May.

Oxheys celebrates 3 years in Preston

Celebrating 3 years since moving in to the former ARM factory on Stanhope Street, artist-run Oxheys Mill Studios was started by three local artists as a collective, with the belief that empty industrial spaces could be made accessible for art and the aim of providing a space in Preston where local artists could experiment and exhibit work alongside the studios.  To date 25 very different exhibitions have been organised and hosted along with other events and activities including music, live theatre, performance and poetry readings, creative writing, life drawing and photography workshops.
