Abstract or Description
The first in a two-day series of events exploring the possibilities of contemporary arts writing.
“Ow, I seen it wive at me out of the winder, wailed the boy, and I don’t like it.”
Inscribing, reasoning and prospecting around the shore of M.R. James’ 1904 supernatural short story Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad, this event observes inscription as a methodology for art writing through a range of critical and creative presentations; examining where meaning might take place, and reasoning backwards. Featuring a rare screening of Jonathan Miller's 1968 film version of the story. Speakers include Beatrice Gibson, artist, Jennifer Higgie, writer, Craig Martin, cultural geographer and Alexandre Singh, artist.
