Artist Talks: Lena Simic at Kingsway

Joanne McNally writes with details of an upcoming event…
This week as part of ‘ARTISTS ON YOUR DOORSTEP’ we are pleased to announce a talk with professional Solo artist LENA SIMIC, the founder of The Institute of the ‘Art and Practice of Dissent at Home’. The venue for The Institute is her council home in Liverpool, which she opens up to showcase performances. Controversially, these performances have been funded through child and tax benefits and also being an academic, through her lecturing salaries.
Find out how and why she has turned her home into a performance venue in the name of art, what her performance influences are, and how The Institute all came about.
This will certainly be a talk not to be missed!
TUES 23rd November, 1.30PM
Kingsway Buildings Lecture Theatre, CKW126
Open to all current staff and students
