Who Are We Writing For?

Who Are We Writing For?
A symposium exploring the strategies for communicating contemporary art in the public realm
To celebrate and complicate world-renowned Swiss artist Roman Signer’s premiere of his new work, Transmissions from the River (Übertragungen aus dem Fluss), along the River Bogie in Huntly, Scotland, Deveron Arts is pleased to present Who Are We Writing For?, an intensive peer-led symposium addressing the state of critical art discourse and its role in the public realm. Sparked by Signer’s seemingly simple, yet highly theorized oeuvre that defies any specific genre and discourse, Deveron Arts is inviting a select number of participants from across the UK, Europe, and abroad to join in asking ourselves: Can we be both critical AND publicly accessible when it comes to discussing contemporary art?
From acute curatorial statements, strategic public outreach programmes, to mass marketing materials, how are we interpreting, translating, advertising, and elucidating contemporary art today? And who are we really writing for?
Please note: This event is by invite only.
Who Are We Writing For?
15 – 16 September 2011
Huntly, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Co-produced by Amy Fung and Deveron Arts
