Symposium: Going the Way of the Dodo?
Friday 29th November 2013

Speakers: Elisa Adami, Calum F Kerr, Laura Mahony, Dr Mark Palmer, Alexander Stevenson, Dr Chris Wright

Venue: The Collection Auditorium, Danes Terrace, Lincoln, LN2 1LP

Going the Way of the Dodo? is a one-day symposium bringing together artists, historians and academics to collectively ask: 'is the idea of the ‘now’ under threat as a 21st century concept?' Going the way of the Dodo? reflects upon the context and outcomes of Lincoln Art Programme’s recent project Red Herrings and Chinese Whispers, a three day programme of artistic projects held in May 2013 that reflected upon the social, spatial and historical nature of a small isolated island located in Lincoln Brayford Pool. The projects artistic programme has already been assigned to the islands historical timeline. Going the Way of the Dodo? re-visits the projects work alongside new presentations in the ‘present’ allowing from both an artistic and historical vantage point; to creatively explore how this event can return to a moment in a ‘new position’.

Going the Way of the Dodo? will also see the launch of a new Red Herrings and Chinese Whispers publication.
