The Essay: a Critical Writing in Art & Design Conference takes place on May 22-3 at the Royal College of Art‘s Gorvy Lecture Theatre.
The conference, answering to a recent renaissance of the essay, is an attempt to examine this trend and to discuss the multitude of definitions that exist for it.
Speakers include Dave Gunning, Deborah Levy, Katrina Palmer, the Otolith Group, and Wayne Koestenbaum, among others. On May 23rd, the conference will feature a round table discussion chaired by general genius Emily LaBarge and artist Paul Pieroni.
