Taking place at Bush House Arcade, London from Wednesday 10th – Friday 12th October 2018, ‘3 days of fat’ is a ‘live’ art-science event focused on the construction of an island of fat – a ‘fatberg’. The event is part of the research of Goldsmiths Design PhD student Mike Thompson. It includes a series of themed experiments, performances and discussions brining together artists Thought Collider and Arne Hendriks with King’s College London’s Department of Nutritional Sciences and experts from art and culture, life sciences, food, agriculture and healthcare to discuss humanity’s complex relationship with fat, what it is and what it might become.
More information can be found on the King’s College website.
At the Warden’s Annual Public Engagement Awards for 2018, Goldsmiths Design PhD student Tom Keene was the winner in the Postgraduate Researcher category.
The awards recognise and celebrate the work Goldsmiths researchers at all career stages did with members of the public in 2017.
An exhibition of work by Design PhD candidate Stacey Pitsillides will be open at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery (11 Stockwell Street, London) between 28 February and 24 March. The show “invites the public to experience how artistic making can provide momentary glimpses of relationships unfolding stories of love and loss.”
Material Legacies is the culmination of a four-year research collaboration with The Hospice of St Francis, a palliative care charity. This collaboration explores how artistic making supports the bereaved to negotiate their own approach to translating and finding a place for the dead in their lives. Within this process, biography is distilled into three distinct experiences, which collect a range of materials capturing the essence of the deceased’s archive. This deep interaction advocates how a material approach to loss can expand our personal and aesthetic relationships with the dead.
This exhibition would be of special interest to those working within the boundaries of art and public engagement, co-design and art therapy through artistic practice.
The exhibition is free, but you can RSVP to attend the private view on the evening of February 28th here.
