The Voice and Nothing More (vanm), curated by Sam Belinfante and Neil Luck, is a week-long festival exploring the voice as both medium and subject matter in contemporary arts practices.
To mark the 40th anniversary of John Cage's seminal publication Notations (Something Else Press, 1968-9) Notations 2008 presented a range of investigations into what notation is - and can be.
Working with the Slade School of Fine Art, four artists – in China, Uganda, Israel and Australia –each filmed a 12 minute video in a locale connected to their work, under the title The View From Here.
This was a two-day symposium of papers, films and panel discussions and the third in a series of yearly interdisciplinary student-run events, organised by the Slade School of Fine Art and the Bartlett School of Architecture.
This project comprised six separate weeks of concentrated activity by clusters of graduate students electing to work under the respective umbrellas of specific research themes: speed, light, time, colour, scale and space.
The aim was to present research themes, which could be productively explored in the space; basic notions which continually inform the production of art, and hence are key to the development of artistic research: Weight, Water, Touch, Body, Land, Air.
