Guide74 performance lecture

Burton Art Gallery & Museum, Bideford, Devon
Free (Booking advised)

"intellectually invigorating, visually engaging and aesthetically challenging" Dr Harriet Hawkins, Director MA Cultural Geography, University of London

Guide74 is an artist project exploring spatial dynamics in the high mountains using experimental fieldwork. Using a format of photographic image, spoken word and physical objects, Guide74 leads an audience on an expedition to the Alpine regions of France – a journey of many parts exploring ideas of interrelated geographies and events. For more information visit: www.guide74.com

While this event is not specifically about Luce's commission for the Bideford Black project, it will give a flavour of how she works and thinks. For the Burton project, Luce is developing Seam - a scripted large-scale, dynamic photographic installation (conceived as an event throughout the exhibition), and associated items. Find out more about her work here.

Do join us.

This is a free event, but please book a place by phoning or emailing Burton Art Gallery.
