Visiting artists talks

Every Monday during term time, we invite arts practitioners from around the world to talk to students and staff in the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies about what they do and why they do it. 

In 2020-21, we’ve been holding our visiting artists talks online and we’ve continued to welcome arts practitioners from across the globe.

In recent years, speakers have included legendary Canadian artist and art educator Garry Neill Kennedy, acclaimed Dutch sound poet Jaap Blonk, Scottish performance artist Cara Tolmie, film-maker Rachel MacLean, Tate Britain Director Penelope Curtis, co-founder and director of Auto Italia Kate Cooper, and Director of the Liverpool Biennial Sally Tallant.

The talks are an integral part of our fine art teaching but they are open to attendees from across the University and the general public. They are an excellent opportunity for all to engage with national and international contemporary artists, art writers and curators.

Talks take place on Monday afternoons from 2pm and have included:
