Please note the exhibition will be closed on 19 March from 10.00 – 13.00 for a private event.
King's College London presents Art | Philosophy: Migration, Meaning, Time, an exhibition and events programme in the Arcade at Bush House showcasing work by artists in residence at the Centre for Philosophy and the Visual Arts (CPVA) at King's.
By establishing a platform for dialogue between philosophers and artists, the exhibition explores and challenges philosophical ideas of movement, migration, time and meaning.
Resident artists Becky Brewis, Ben Cain, Ted Hunt and Jort van der Laan present work in response to academic research in the Department of Philosophy: Dr Sarah Fine, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at King's, on the ethics of migration, Dr Christopher Hamilton, Reader in Philosophy, on the search for meaning and Professor Matthew Soteriou, Chair in Philosophy of Mind, on the nature of time.
Using pencil and video, Becky Brewis' work explores memory and the grubby handling of images over time.
Ben Cain's practice deals with themes of work, labour and artistic action. Cain has recurrently explored art’s ambiguous relationship to industry, commodification and immaterial labour.
Ted Hunt's work Sense of Time investigates the intersections between our ancient behavioural-driven selves and modern technologically-driven selves.
Working primarily with video, printed matter, and sculptural installation, Jort van der Laan’s work investigates ways in which body and mind are flesh-bound to a political present.
There will be a private view of the exhibition on 26 February, 18.00 - 20.00, including a panel discussion. Please register for the event here.
Art | Philosophy is a collaboration between King’s College London’s Department of Philosophy and Kunsthuis SYB. It is supported by the university’s Culture team and the Arts and Humanities Research Institute.
