Plinth III: Making and Meaning - Slade Research Centre

Plinth III: Making and Meaning - Slade Research Centre

Wednesday 9th October, 6pm, Slade Research Centre (Studio 5)

Come along on Wednesday 9 October, 6pm, for the latest in our Plinth series of salon events focusing on sculpture in all its forms, when we’ll be discussing the complex and often problematic relationship between making and meaning.

Artists Helen Carnac and Gary Stevens explore the link between an artefact and how it’s made. Many makers may wish to obscure the making the process. Is it a trade secret? Do they wish to amaze – or fool us? 

Come along for the latest in our Plinth series of salon events focusing on sculpture in all its forms, when we’ll be discussing the complex and often problematic relationship between making and meaning. 

Join Gary Stevens as he asks how artworks are made - and at which point in the making process does an object become the finished work. Then take part in an interactive session with Helen Carnac focusing on how materials can challenge our thinking about making through doing. 

Helen Carnac is an artist, maker and curator who lives and works in London. She uses methodologies that are rooted in an acute awareness of physical location, place and working practices.

Gary is an artist and tutor at the UCL Slade School of Fine Art. He collaborates with artists and performers to create live performances and video installations, that are both funny and challenging. 

A cash bar will run throughout the evening.
