Dee Heddon; “Walking aesthetics and performing landscape”. Denis Cosgrove Lecture in the GeoHumanities; Royal Holloway Centre for the GeoHumanities 14 02 17

 Via Crit Geog Forum 

On behalf of the Royal Holloway Centre for the GeoHumanities, this is a final reminder of the Denis Cosgrove Lecture in the GeoHumanities that we are hosting on Tuesday February 14th 2017, at Tate Modern in London, as part of our residency in the new ‘Tate Exchange’ space in the gallery.

The lecture will be given by Dee Heddon (Professor of Contemporary Performance, University of Glasgow) on the topic of “Walking aesthetics and performing landscape”. The lecture and discussion will run from 4-6pm. The Tate Exchange space is on level 5 of the new ‘Switch House’ extension to Tate Modern, Bankside, London, SE1 9TG. If attendees could aim to reach the space between 3.30 pm and 4pm that would be greatly appreciated.

In this lecture, Dee will be looking at the relations between performance theory and practice and questions of landscape and its animation, through the lens of ‘walking arts’. Framed within a wider concern for the relationships between performance, art and landscape, the lecture will tell stories of walking as a space for exchange of experience, knowledge and relations. Dee is author of numerous publications including Autobiography and Performance (2008) and co-editor of a new book series for Palgrave on ‘Performing Landscapes’. 

The lecture is part of a suite of events on Feb. 14th on the theme of ‘Environments, Encounters, Exchanges’. Further details can be found at:  http://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern/workshop/tate-exchange/environments-encounters-exchanges 

The lecture is free, and Tate will not require a ticket… but if you would like to come, an RSVP to geohumanities@rhul.ac.uk would be useful for judging numbers.
