Visual Cultures Lecture Series

The School of Fine Art's flagship lecture series

The Royal College of Art’s School of Fine Art continues its Visual Cultures lecture series with a focus on sculpture and moving image. Under the theme, ‘Current Modes of Artistic Production’, the series invites artists to investigate various aspects that contribute to the production, circulation and reception of their work. Through in-depth focus on a specific project of each guest speaker, the series aims to give an insight into the complex fabric of artistic production and explore what it means to work as an artist today.

 The first series saw leading contemporary artists such as Yinka Shonibare, Elmgreen & Dragset and Willie Doherty share their experiences. This series will feature talks by international artists Mark Leckey, Gerard Byrne, Fiona Tan, Christine Borland with Brody Condon and Thomas Hirschhorn, each will talk in-depth about a single project, exploring all aspects of production.

You can view recorded talks on RCA Talks.
