Abstract or Description

Convened by Dr Zoë Mendelson and presented by Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon Graduate School Public Programme.

A one-day symposium, Spectacular Evidence, will include presentations, performances, screenings and talks from the fields of visual art, medicine and critical theory. Drawing upon histories of madness and its exhibition, and considering how it has been staged as cultural performance, this event will consider behaviours and ‘performances’ exchanged between viewer and physician in relation to patient.

Continuing on from my PhD research into Brazilian artist Lygia Clark, I discuss Clark's work on 'biological architecture'
