Bee Hughes: From Performative Printmaking to Performing Periods
Bee is an artist, PhD researcher and lecturer working across the fields of arts practice, art history, media and cultural studies and sociology. In this presentation they will discuss the development of their recent art practice which has seen them shift from traditional printmaking rooted in Graphic Arts, towards performance and body-oriented practices. Bee will discuss key themes and methods used in their work, such as autobiography, gender, performativity, permutation, collaboration and curation, illustrated through the body of work produced as part of their PhD project.
