Jon Bird speaker at The Message and the Medium

 Prof Jon Bird is an invited speaker at The Message and the Medium, a one day symposium at Hauser & Wirth Somerset gallery on19 October 2015.

In response to the exhibition ‘Jenny Holzer: Softer Targets’, this one day symposium will explore the use of language and technology in art. McLuhan’s statement suggests that there is a discrepancy between those who make art and the audience who view it, and, in the way we describe it today, those who consume it. ‘The Message and The Medium’ will draw together artists, thinkers and writers who share an interest in language and / or technology as a medium and / or message.

Guest speakers will include Jon Bird, Ruth Blacksell, Dave Beech and Pavel Büchler.
