The Tuesday Talks programme invites artists, thinkers and curators to explore an aspect of their practice in a lunch-hour. Visiting speakers shape the form of their talk, so you can expect anything from in-depth discussion of a current interest to a live performance.

Kathryn Elkin (born in Belfast, 1983) is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art (2005) and Goldsmiths College (2012) and former LUX Associate Artist (2013). She is currently based in Berwick Upon Tweed.

Elkin’s performance and video works concern role-playing and improvising, alongside experiments with the outtake and clowning on set. She has an ongoing interest in shared cultural memory (as produced by popular music, television and cinema) and the melding of this information to biographical memory.

She was a participant in the BBC project Artists in the Archive in 2014, and completed a solo exhibition at CCA Glasgow titled ‘Television’ in 2016. She has shown work throughout the UK, including ICA, Tate Modern, Collective Gallery, Transmission, S1 and CCA Derry. She has screened works at London Film Festival and Union Docs, New York and will show an overview of work at Courtisane Festival in Ghent, April 2017. She is the recipient of the 2017 Warwick Stafford Fellowship at Northumbria University and teaches part-time at Liverpool John Moore’s University.

Tuesday Talks is programmed by Lancaster Arts and Lancaster University Fine Art Department. Find the full programme for Autumn 2017 here
