An exhibition to accompany and further explore issues raised in the conference 'Material Memory – the Post Industrial Landscape as Site for Creative Practice' held at Newcastle University on 14th November 2014.
The film 'Dancing in the Boardroom (Turnin' My Heartbeat Up)' by Chloë Brown was exhibited.
Both the exhibition and conference have their roots in ‘Topographies of the Obsolete’, a significant R&D collaborative project initiated by Bergen Academy of Art that both deepens and develops understanding of the post-industrial landscape with reference to the industrial ruin. Via a series of workshops and with the broad based participation of cross-disciplinary artists/educators from a range of international institutions, the socio-economic histories, industrial architecture, and production remnants of the former historic Spode site at Stoke-on-Trent were explored.
‘Material Memory’ - both the exhibition and the conference - brought together artists, curators, landscape architects, musicians and cultural geographers to present live projects and debate the issues that such work raises.
Artists: Chloë Brown, Neil Brownsword, Michele Allen, Nigel Morgan
Speakers: Jane & Louise Wilson, Dr. Tim Edensor, Prof. Andrew Burton, Prof. Anne Helen Mydland, Rowland Byass, Dr. Venda Louise Pollock, Prof. Jeremy Welsh, Dr. Ian Thompson, Prof. Wolfgang Weileder, Prof. John Kippin, Dr. Andrew Livingstone & Megan Randall, Michael Maziere and Danny Bright.
The conference and exhibition were curated by Gwen Heaney, Newcastle University.
