Adrian Heathfield: Flesh–Event–Writing

  • Artspace, Level 2, Studio 201 43–51 Cowper Wharf Roadway Woolloomooloo, NSW, 2011 Australia (map)

Artspace and the Biennale of Sydney are pleased to host the seminar Flesh–Event–Writing, a communal conversation led by writer and curator Adrian Heathfield, who works across the scenes of live art, performance and dance. This seminar will explore approaches to writing practice that reconfigure the relation between embodiment and textuality – in particular thinking through the impacts of écriture féminine, performative writing, affect theory and ficto-criticism. What are the relations between these writings and a poetics of the event?

Flesh–Event–Writing is part of The Bureau of Writing, a collaborative writing program designed for artists and presented alongside the 20th Biennale of Sydney.

Please note this 2.5 hour seminar is open for a limited number of participants and requires preparatory reading. There is no cost for taking part but registration is essential. Please email (with the subject line ‘Flesh–Event–Writing’) by 5 September to register your interest in taking part.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body. It has been made possible through the generous support of the Keir Foundation.
