Sarah Edge/Pamela Whitaker/Rosy Martin

Come along and here lectures profiling the work of two Ulster University academics: Sarah Edge and Pamela Whitaker. Their research examines how the body can be employed as a form of resistance in art practice. Sarah Edge will re-examine the history of feminist performance art, and link this to post-feminist concepts. Pamela Whitaker will talk about her work on public practice art therapy in civic spaces, outdoor studios and within cultural contexts. They will be joined by Rosy Martin, who will discuss collaborative performances incorporating photography, phototherapy and re-enactment.
