CAMPUS: Fugitive: The Unexpected Beautiful Phrase - Nottingham Contemporary - Nottingham

CAMPUS Fugitive is the second in a series of events exploring ideas around education and critical pedagogies.Through a series of performative gestures, this event will consider how the fugitive learner navigates institutional space and refuses legibility. Featuring performance, reading, installation, sound and video works, this event asks: how can we be fugitive within formal educational models? How can illegibility generate new and disruptive practices?CAMPUS Fugitive is curated by Pablo Luis Álvarez, Giulia Antonioli, Teal Baskerville, Chloe Carroll, Emily Hale and Laura Luempert as part of the MA Curating Contemporary Art Programme Graduate Projects 2019, Royal College of Art, London.Free.
