Inaugural lecture: Professor Sonia Boyce

Between you and me: collapsing the boundaries between art, sound and collaboration

In her inaugural lecture, Professor Sonia Boyce will discuss her interest in collapsing the boundaries between art, sound and collaboration, as it has unfolded in her art practice over the past few decades.

As a British-born Afro-Caribbean artist, Boyce’s early works addressed issues of race, gender and contemporary urban experience through large pastel drawings and photographic collages. As a consequence of these works, she became known as one of the leading figures in the burgeoning British Black Arts Movement of the 1980s. Since the 1990s her practice has incorporated a wider variety of media, and has stretched in more recent years to include the participation of other people in improvised collaborations between artists, vocalists and audiences.

The lecture will reflect on the discursive and conceptual practices of the 1960s and 1970s that have influenced her approach - practices which she finds herself both admiring and resisting.

Date: Thursday 27 June 2013 Time: 4.30-7pm Venue: Room CG77, Hendon Campus
