Key Note Lecture: Thierry de Duve, Presentation, Address, Contact
Wednesday 27 February at 6.00pm has been regrettably postponed due to
unforeseen circumstances. A new date will be advertised on our website
in due course.

Works of art are things that present and address themselves to an audience of spectators in order to establish aesthetic and interpretive contact with them. When those things are radically new, unusual or provocative, it is doubtful that they can achieve this on their own. What curatorial strategies can we adopt so as to give them a little push?

This key note lecture is presented by Thierry de Duve, Historian and Theorist of contemporary art and Professor at University of Lille III, who is dedicated to a reinterpretation of Modernism and an examination of its legacies. De Duve is author of several books including the critically acclaimed book Kant after Duchamp (1996).
