Aesthetica Art Prize 2016 Lunchtime Talks: Composing Time & Space with Dr Christina Kolaiti and Desmond Brett, YSJU

The Aesthetica Art Prize free lunchtime talks continue this Thursday from 12.30pm with Composing Time & Space: Photographic & Sculptural Practice. Dr Christina Kolaiti, Photography Lecturer, and Desmond Brett, Fine Art Lecturer at York St John University, will use their expertise to explore the photographic and sculptural works exhibited in this year’s Art Prize Exhibition. The talk will assess the potential that these mediums have to instil sentiments of time and space in the viewer.

Taking place at York St Mary’s, Composing Time & Space: Photographic & Sculptural Practice follows last week’s successful double-bill session, which featured six finalists from the 2016 award: Liz West, Rachel Ara, David Hochgatterer, James Winter, Jennifer Ayala López’s Studio Crew and Henry Driver. Our dynamic series of lunchtime talks, delivered throughout the months of April and May, are open to the public and free to attend. Beginning at 12.30pm every Thursday, and lasting up to 45 minutes, these sessions are an excellent opportunity to engage with this year’s Art Prize selection and key topics from the contemporary art arena.
