CORNWALL INTENSIVE WEEK 3-10 JUNE 2017

In EVENTS | VERANSTALTUNGEN on June 15, 2017 at 6:14 pm

Dear Oleksiy Koval,

Artwork as an Event: Symposium June 3-10 2017
I am writing on behalf of the Contemporary Arts Practice Group to invite you to participate in the Artwork as an Event: Symposium here at the University of Hertfordshire from June 3 – 10 2017. The event is hosted by the Contemporary Art Practice Group of the School of Art and Design.

The aim of the symposium is to bring together a group of artists to discuss and develop the concept of the Artwork as an Event. The project includes practice-led research and develops the idea of “field-work” for artist practitioners and research involving collaborations through which the participating artists share insights into their research and methodologies. It is planned that the outcomes are presented at an international exhibition/public symposium in 2017-2018. The symposium provides an opportunity to initiate debate and make site-based artwork around questions of the ‘event’: what constitutes an artwork as event and is the ‘event’ an act or trace or both? By looking at the artwork as subject to time/site/contexts and (re)arrangements this project will consider how work happens as much in action as it does in the way it is shown and presented. We will initially consider a range of new strategies which would allow new methodologies to emerge while acknowledging the complex and temporary nature of artworks as events. Underlying the aims of the symposium is the opportunity to have time working together in order to individually ‘tailor’ the eventual research project so that it is reflects the nature of each participant’s practice.

Yours sincerely,

Alison Dalwood
Senior Lecturer in Fine Art
School of Art and Design

We’re delighted to tell you that Oleksiy Koval was picked by Culture Trip as one of our Munich Local Favorites 2017.

If Sam Taylor-Johnson’s A Little Death is your thing or you can’t get enough of Takashi Murakami’s installations, then a trip to Munich is in order. As well as 80 museums and a plethora of contemporary art galleries, there are some brilliant contemporary artists marking their mark on the art world that you need to know about. Here are seven names to keep an eye out for.

Oleksiy Koval

Making the move from Ukraine to Munich, Koval brings a variety of cultural influences and artistic styles to his work both as a practising artist and guest speaker at philosophy lectures at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts. His work often revolves around grids, where neat rows are disturbed by overlapping lines fighting for space or erratic paint dabs. The wide variety of materials Koval uses as a base is a striking element of his work – anything from cotton to MDF is his canvas.
