Who Is This Who Is Coming: Art Writing Symposium

  • Maria Fusco (Organiser)

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference


A two-day symposium discussing the practice of contemporary art writing at Whitechapel Gallery, London, as part of my role as Writer-in-Residence there. I organised the first day, my aim was to prospect the shore of M.R. James’ 1904 supernatural short story Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad as a suggestive yet speculative proposition on how to approach the production and reception of contemporary art writing, examining where meaning might take place and reasoning backwards. The second day was organised by Gavin Butt. http://www.whitechapelgallery.org/projects/writer-in-residence/maria-fusco/symposia
