Tomorrow afternoon, the Faculty of Arts & Media and the department of Art and Design play host to Jimmie Durham, a multi-media artist, writer and poet whose work incorporates painting, sculpture, photography, performance and video.

The performance is free, and open to all current staff and students at the University of Chester – it will be of interest to anyone interested in performance and installation art, and shouldn’t be missed!

As a member of the American Indian Movement in the 1970s, Jimmie Durham campaigned at the United Nations. In February he exhibited ‘Rejected Stones’ at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. This weekend Durham takes part in Hans Ulrich Obrist’s ‘Poetry Marathon’ at the Serpentine Gallery, London, as part of an ongoing series of artist’s ‘Experiments’. Durham works with found materials and the transformations, which are enacted in his work, sometimes involve the impact of stones upon man-made objects and structures in a retaliation, which is both physical and intellectual, against the built environment and monumentality.
