THREEFOLDparallelperformance: Fictitious Commodity?

Wednesday 20 March 2019, 6.30pm
Free entry

Over three nights in March 2019, the THREEFOLDParallelPerformance series of panels were presented as performative gatherings (playful, possibly political) in parallel with the exhibition Shapes of Knowledge. Live drawings were made by Oslo Davis and Angharad Neil-Williams.

In the second event titled ‘Fictitious Commodity?’, a conversation was held on the political economy and ecology of our Higher Education and arts sectors with a focus on the objects, modalities and impacts of our traditional and/or creative practices within their wider publics or environments. Panellists presented short, performative and playful responses to the key question: are the products of our practices shaped as fictitious commodities?
