The Photography and the Contemporary Imaginary Research Hub at LCC is pleased to announce a series of research talks thinking about the relationship of photography and writing – and how photographs are expanded, altered and dissected through text. Talks will be introduced by short presentations of works by current students and alumni.
Hayley Newman: ‘The Touch of an Eye’
The written images in the worlds I create operate as both smokescreen and window; denying and giving access to an event. I do not try to represent things truthfully, rather extend the visual world inwards and outwards to encompass that which is visually observed, what is experienced by other organs and senses and what can be imagined.
Hayley Newman, visual artist, Reader in Fine Art and co-ordinator of the practice-led PhD option at Slade School of Fine Art, University College London (UCL). Author of the novella Common, written as self-appointed artist-in-residence in the City of London in 2011 and member of the art/activist collective Liberate Tate, she is committed to working collectively around the current ecological and social crisis.
Presentations: Marcia Michael (PhD), Patricia Atzur (BAP3), Sabrina Fuller (MAP16)
