Afterall and Arts Catalyst are pleased to announce two talks developed as part of Afterall’s Exhibition Histories series and presented within Arts Catalyst’s current season ‘9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering Revisited, 1966/2016’. Using the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the renowned 1966 events and the founding of Experiments in Art and Technology, the talks will reflect on the histories of art and technology in performance, on transdisciplinary collaboration and the influence of the 1960s on contemporary art today.
Artist Jeremy Millar will host an evening screening of the film documenting John Cage’s performance Variations VII., produced as part of ‘9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering’. Millar will then contextualise the piece in relation to Cage’s broader practice and related works.
