About the School of Art Friday Lecture Series

The School of Art Friday Lectures is a public series of talks by leading national and international artists and thinkers.

This year, the Lectures are focused around the School’s research clusters: Futurity, Material, Narrative, Sexes and Temporality. The School of Art’s practice-led research embodies and critically reflects upon new registers of contemporary art, whilst rearticulating processes and practices associated with established artistic media.
