1pm: Welcome and event introduction.
1.10pm: Morgan Quaintance will stage a live recording of 'Studio Visit', a one-hour interviews-based radio show broadcast monthly on Resonance 104.4FM. Featuring a panel of invited guests including Simeon Barclay, Shama Khana and Amanprit Sandhu, this special end-of-year episode, titled 'That Was the Year That Was', will survey the highs and lows of art and culture in 2017. Followed by a discussion.
2.30pm: Break with food and drinks available to purchase in the onsite cafe.
3pm: Maryam Monalisa Gharavi will present the work Eva's Face (video installation, 2017) that explores one woman's experience with facial paralysis. The work exists in a larger constellation of Gharavi's recent film works concerning the instrumentalisation of the face in ways of knowing, corporeal encounters between self and other, and ultimately, the limits and freedoms of embodied personhood. This will be followed by a discussion.
