This is a Research Forum including artists, writers and academics from the Slade in dialogue with other researchers at UCL and other London and international institutions, who are working on the relation between words and images across various fields of creativity and scholarship. The aim of the Forum is to address research questions that emerge from the interaction between different disciplines. We hope that this will generate new research in the field of 'Word Image' studies.

Off the Shelf, 22 March 2010
OFF THE SHELF: PERFORMANCE, FILM, VIDEO, POETRY, MUSIC: an evening of live-events staged by the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, to take place in the Wilkins North and South Cloisters plus the Old Refectory, March 22nd 2010, 6.00-10.30pm. Taking as its theme a re-examination of the Small Press Collection of rare magazines housed at UCL, this event will give you the chance to engage with the spirit of the alternative 'avant-garde' press, re-visiting early texts that straddle the divide between art and poetry - including artists and writers Vito Acconci, Sol Le Witt, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Derek Jarman and Bob Cobbing. These texts will be explored through various forms of performance and accompanied by film, video and documentation of the period. The evening will also stage new creative works by contemporary visual artists, writers and musicians, and students, and a 'speaker's corner' with short talks by members of the Slade Word/Image Research Forum. This is one of a series of public events planned by the forum for 2009-2011. The Slade OFF THE SHELF is the grateful recipient of a Beacon Bursary administered via the department of Public Engagement, UCL.
