The first in a series of curatorial constellations and events, this exhibition and performance evening extends Dr Heather Connelly’s transdisciplinary research into art-and-translation, which she began during her practice-based PhD, Speaking through the voice of another, (Loughborough University 2015). It has been designed to complement and expand the Exploring Cultural Mobility through Visual and Performance Art panel convened by Gabriela Saldanha (University of Birmingham) and Cristina Marinetti (Cardiff University). The exhibition includes work from established and emerging artists, curators, writers and researchers Bill Aitchison (UK/CN), Emma Cocker and Clare Thornton (UK), Heather Connelly (UK), Johanna Hällsten (SE/UK), Saskia Holmkvist (SE/NO), Rebecca Johnson (UK), Xiangyun Lim (SG), Marianna Maruyama (NL), Manuela Perteghella (IT/UK) and Ricarda Vidal (DE/UK), Annie Xu (CN/UK) and Solomon Yu, Jimmy Chan and Eddie Cheung (HK) and provides space for artists contributing to the panel to present their practice as objects, performances and documentation of events.
