Event Structure: Holistic Reading Room
Sunday 6 March 2–4pm
For Event Structure: Holistic Reading Room artist Grace Ndiritu will lead a group reading of John Latham's text Event Structure, which focuses on ‘Deep Time’ and group work. The reading will be interspersed by silent meditation breaks led by Ndiritu. Ndiritu’s intervention seeks to transform notions of group experiments from history to the present day through social practice. This commission reveals a resonance between her practice and Latham’s lifelong aim to bring reflective and intuitive modes of thinking to wider society – most clearly manifested in his work with the Artist Placement Group, a pioneering organisation that negotiated placements for artists within industry and government.
Please note this event will be filmed and documentation will be publicly presented. We ask that attendees give their permission for this to take place.
