Description

Wednesday 14 August, 6-8pm

In association with his solo exhibition at Vane, ‘Somewhere In Between’, Oliver Doe will talk about his work and exhibition with Dr Marc Botha, Assistant Professor in Modern and Contemporary Literature and Theory in the Department of English Studies at Durham University and Co-director of Durham’s Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience.

Botha’s research interrogates the intersection of critical theory, modern and contemporary literature, and interdisciplinary aesthetics. His recent book, A Theory of Minimalism (Bloomsbury, 2017), centred on developing a general philosophy on minimalist principles, applicable to literature, visual art, and music, across all media. He is currently exploring a sustained concern with the tension between embodiment and viscerality, as well as abstraction and the process of disappearance, particularly in relation to queer theory.

The talk is free but places are limited. Please contact the gallery to book a place at info@vane.org.uk or 0191 261 8281
