More details about the symposium:

We invite researchers to take part in a half-day symposium on March 22nd discussing materiality in performance and artistic research. Our focus is on bringing theory to bear on practice, but also to act as a starting point for conversation on this topic at Leeds and beyond; towards creating a local network of researchers and practitioners interested in this area. To encourage wide participation we’d like to begin with an open approach to ‘Materiality’ that can encompass physical, digital, analogue, as well as the many ways these things may fluidly intersect.

The keynote speaker will be Christopher Salter, mixed-media artist, Director of the Hexagram Concordia Centre for Research and Creation in Media Art and Technology (Montréal), and author of several books on material agency: http://chrissalter.com
