In partnership with Nottingham Contemporary

The Unexpected Beautiful Phrase is a one-day programme of gatherings and performative moments, exploring modes of learning through ideas of fugitivity and illegibility. Featuring existing and newly commissioned performance, readings, sound and video works this event asks: how can we be fugitive within the constraints of traditional educational models? How can the illegible generate new and disruptive vocabularies? This project is part of the launch programme for CAMPUSNottingham Contemporary’s new independent studies programme.
