Writing & Concepts Lecture Series, Alicia Frankovich: Thursday 27 September – 6.00pm
Exoplanets: interior and exterior possibilities
In this free public lecture Alicia Frankovich will address multiple embodiments that look at human and non-human entities, to imagine new and other worlds. She will address microscopic bacteria including probiotic water kefir, sugars and the female karyotype.
WRITING & CONCEPTS is a public lecture and publication series designed to explore the potential of writing as both a process and an outcome. Contributors include practitioners for whom the written form is their primary professional output and practitioners whose work manifests as exhibitions or events within the domain of contemporary art.
