Marguerite Humeau Indiana Jones in GoogleTimes talk @ UCL, Oct 19

17 October 2016

Marguerite Humeau will present a lecture and discussion at London’s UCL on October 19.

The talk will look at the relationship between archaeologists and artists, and expand on Humeau’s practice which “stages the crossing of great distances in time and space, transitions between animal and mineral, and encounters between personal desires and natural forces.” Combining fact and fiction, the works create narratives that ‘resuscitate the past’ in a contemporary quest for information.

Humeau is currently showing FOXP2, a solo exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary which runs until January 19.

Slade School Rock Room take over this Friday

29 May 2013

The Geology Collections at UCL will play host to a pop up exhibition, Habits, cleavages, fractures, featuring artists and Slade school graduates on Friday, May 31.

On display between 1 to 5pm on the day, attendants will have the opportunity to view the work, meet the artists and hear a talk surrounding it at 4pm. Having undergone a recent revamp, organizers no doubt hope to boost interest in the collections, some of which go back as far as 1855. We’re more interested in how artists will interpret the brief and connect with those ancient remnants of time and nature. See the UCL website for more details. **
