WORLD LITERATURE CONSTELLATION

Wednesday 11 January 2017

FREE DROP-IN

How does narrative affect the experience of art? Can literary writing help to rethink curatorial practice? How does the world enter the enclosed space of the art gallery? These questions will be at the heart of World Literature Constellation, a student symposium featuring work from Liverpool John Moores University students. Beginning with introductions to selected artwork from Tate Liverpool’s collection display Constellations: Highlights from the Nation’s Collection of Modern Art, students will suggest creative connections between the Tate collection and world literature. Poems, novels, short stories and essays will produce a new narrative and open up the borders of the gallery to a multitude of voices.

Programmed in association with Liverpool John Moores University and presented by the School of Humanities and Social Science.
