A research talk by Anne Tallentire: ‘Photography and Action’
Wednesday 4 March 2015, 4.30.
Street Lecture Theatre, London College of Communication, Elephant & Castle.
The Photography and the Contemporary Imaginary Research Hub at LCC is pleased to announce a research talk by Professor Anne Tallentire. This talk will focus on how photography operates materially and conceptually in relation to Tallentire’s performance, drawing, video and text works. Focusing on ‘Nowhere else’ (2010) and ‘From in and with’ (2014) she will explore how processes of assembling and re-ordering become the means to investigate constituents of place and daily life and the overlooked in primarily urban situations.
‘This and other things’, a major retrospective of Tallentire’s work was held at The Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin in 2010. In 1999 she represented Ireland at The Venice Biennale. More recently she has exhibited at Hollybush Gardens, London (2012). Group shows include ‘Winter Garden’, Flat Time House, London (2015); ‘Keywords: art Culture and Society in 1980’s Britain’, Tate Liverpool (2014); ‘At-your-service’, Technicki Muzej, Zagreb, Croatia, (2014); ‘Le Monde Physique’, La Galerie, Contemporary Art Centre, Noisy-Le-Sec, Paris (2011). As part of work-seth/tallentire, with John Seth shows include ‘Densité ± 0’, Fri-Art, Fribourg, Switzerland; ‘0044’ PSI, New York and ‘Sum of the Parts’, South London Gallery (2002 – 4). Tallentire worked until 2014 at CSM, UAL where she was a Professor of Fine Art and co-founder of the Double agents Research Project. Her book ‘Object of a life’, was published by Copy Press in 2013.
The Photography and the Contemporary Imaginary Research Hub was established in 2013 and builds on LCC's international reputation for conceptual photography.
