Jointly programmed by The Serving Library and Liverpool Biennial:
Loose Associations Lecture: Ryan Gander

Please join us on THURSDAY 16 NOVEMBER from 5–6.30pm for the inaugural screening of one of the Loose Associations Lectures by Chester-born artist Ryan Gander, newly assembled here in the form of a four-channel video. Gander is one of the confirmed Liverpool Biennial 2018 artists and will be present to introduce the video beforehand, answer questions afterwards, and possibly talk over the top of it throughout.

The lecture at the heart of the video consists of a series of loosely associated anecdotes on often overlooked or undercover aspects of art, design and language. Subjects range from ‟desire lines” to the NatWest logo; from Ryan’s Aunt Deva to Homer Simpson; from The Knowledge of London’s cab drivers to Star Trek’s Klingon language. Two loosely-connected versions of the lecture series have been delivered to countless audiences over the years, and both were originally published in The Serving Library’s predecessor journal, ‟Dot Dot Dot.”

The bar will be open, serving for a modest fee. The event will start at 5pm promptly so that the audience is able to attend the opening of the new Tate Liverpool exhibitions the same evening.

As usual, the event is FREE but on this occasion BOOKING IS REQUIRED, here:
