ROTOЯ: A Bigger Splash

Please join us in Huddersfield Art Gallery at 6pm next Thursday 27 September for the final ROTOЯ film screening of 2012. To accompany the exhibition Patrick Procktor: Art and Life, the curator Ian Massey has chosen to show the film A Bigger Splash (1974). The imaginative reconstruction of David Hockney’s art and love life is stunningly filmed by the photographer Jack Hazan in the moods, colours, and tones of Hockney’s paintings. Patrick Procktor appears in the film alongside Hockney, Ossie Clark, Celia Birtwell and others from their social circle. All welcome. Places are free but limited. Please e-mail us to book a seat:

Research Festival 2012

Please join us this Thursday 13 September for a programme of illustrated talks (featuring ROTOЯ exhibitors Ian Massey and Barber Swindells) and a mini book festival showcasing recent publications for UoA34 from across the School of Art, Design and Architecture. The programme provides opportunity to meet some of our REF staff and hear extracts of their research – all publications will be on display during the festival. The illustrated readings sample current and recently completed research projects and highlight the School’s strengths and breadth of expertise and outputs across the fields of architecture, art and design.

Dr Catriona McAra: Welcome and Introduction

Dr Juliet MacDonald: radar 3

Professor Nicholas Temple: Renovatio urbis: Architecture, Urbanism and Ceremony in the Rome of Julius II – Examining the urban and architectural developments in Rome during the Pontificate of Julius II  this book focuses on the political, religious and artistic motives behind the changes. Each chapter focuses on a particular project, from the Palazzo dei Tribunali to the Stanza della Segnatura, and examines their topographical and symbolic contexts in relationship to the broader vision of Julian Rome.

Mr Ian Massey: Keith Vaughan: The Mature Oils – Keith Vaughan is an artist from an historically important, enduringly popular period in post-war British art (1946-77). Publication is timely in Vaughan’s centenary year and, along with a number of exhibitions, will help generate renewed interest in this key British artist.

Dr Pammi Sinha: End of Life Management of Textiles – The End of Life Management of Textiles Research Group is primarily concerned with the reduction of the environmental and social impact of discarded post-consumer textiles (PCT). They work with industrial and academic partners to develop and disseminate strategies and policies that encourage best practice in the end of life management of PCT globally.

Barber Swindells: Mining Couture – Mining Couture emerges from Barber Swindells’ commission at the Leicester County Council Snibston Discovery Museum, UK, as part of the Transform regeneration programme. This volume is intended as an integral element of Barber Swindells’ exploration of the theme of “common wear.”

Professor Alex Coles: The Transdisciplinary Studio (Sternberg Press, 2012) is a study of the studio models of artists and designers including Marriot, Gander and Åbäke. The book posits that artists and designers are now defined not by their discipline but by the fluidity with which their practices move between them.

ALL WELCOME in Business School, Room 19 (University of Huddersfield Queensgate Campus).
