10am to 6pm

In November 2017, the Difference Goes Speed Dating event will host a series of encounters between artists, students, academics and industry specialists engaged in lens-based media practices. Using speed dating as a format the aim is to survey the ways in which lens-based practitioners explore the concept of ‘difference’ in their practice.
 
Whether focusing on themes of identity, the visual and non-visual representations of race, gender, sexuality, class, language, power, desire and aesthetics, this one-day symposium, will present these findings and discuss current and alternative ways of picturing difference in contemporary lens-based practices and beyond.
 
Keynote speakers, artists and participants will be presenting papers and in-conversations.
Confirmed speakers: Ajamu, Akiko Takizawa, Dr Ope Lori. More TBA.
 
This event is convened by Dr Ope Lori and presented by the Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon Graduate School Public Programme. 

Booking available soon
