relate to or differ from a fragment? When we think of an object, we

think of it as a whole, we don't consider its parts, or about its

detachability. Yet, we cannot think of the part and the whole

simultaneously. In a similar way form and material are not apprehended

simultaneously. We engage the material or we engage the form.The Montefiore coat of armsJoin us for a pop-up display of exceptional books and

Marianna Simnett, winner of the 2013 Coldstream Prize for her work Dog.In their installation in the Flaxman Gallery, artists Lynn Dennison and

Gen Doy combine sound with video projection to create an immersive work

which highlights some of the themes explored by John Flaxman in his

lectures and sculptures. The artists will be available for discussion

over drinks from 7pm. Part of the 'Petrie Museum on Tour' series.

Gen Doy’s artistic practice involves sound, sound installation and

performance, with a particular interest in sites with historical or

social significance. She has also made programmes for art radio stations

such as basic fm and resonance fm, and is currently working on a sound

installation with song for the dairy at Uppark House (National Trust),

near Petersfield , in the South of England,

Lynn Dennison’s practice uses film and installations to explore the

meanings created when the exterior enters the interior, when the

bucolic, arcadian and romantic connotations of land and seascape enter,

or encounter in other ways, the built environment. Her projections

invite spectators to experience buildings in a new way, and to immerse

themselves in provocative reveries.Let’s talk about love – specifically, why we should

Age group: Adults |Stories from the North

Explore the narratives that shape identity with this season of

contemporary Canadian cinema curated by UCL Art Museum in collaboration

with UCL English. Stories We Tell (2012)

In this deeply personal film about how our narratives shape and define

us as individuals and families, writer/director Sarah Polley discovers

that the truth depends on who's telling the story. Polley is both

filmmaker and detective as she investigates the secrets kept by her

family. As each relates their version of the family mythology,

present-day recollections shift into nostalgic glimpses of a mother who

departed too soon, leaving a trail of unanswered questions.

Age group: Adults |Join artists Kai Syng Tan and Jo Volley in a

hands-on, or rather, feet-on exercise exploring the links between

running, the runner’s high and creativity. Meet Kai at UCL and run/walk

with her to Hampstead Heath (approximately 3.5 miles).

As we run, we will share thoughts, personal anecdotes and speculations

about how running can be conducive to problem-solving or bring about

unusual modes of thinking that depart from how we think when we do not

move or run. At our destination, we run into Jo, who shows us where she

runs and looks out for oak apples that she uses in her artworks which we

proceed to see in her studio located nearby. Who knows, after this run,

you may run home feeling so energized that you go on to create a

masterpiece. Or two.

Professor of Art (tenured), The College of William and Mary,

Williamsburg, Virginia.What constitutes a part--in what way is a part defined and how does it

relate to or differ from a fragment? When we think of an object, we

think of it as a whole, we don't consider its parts, or about its

detachability. Yet, we cannot think of the part and the whole

simultaneously. In a similar way form and material are not apprehended

simultaneously. We engage the material or we engage the form.The Montefiore coat of armsJoin us for a pop-up display of exceptional books and

objects from the Arthur Sebag-Montefiore Archive illustrating various

aspects of the life of Sir Moses Montefiore (1784-1885), one of the most

Marianna Simnett, winner of the 2013 Coldstream Prize for her work Dog.In their installation in the Flaxman Gallery, artists Lynn Dennison and

Gen Doy combine sound with video projection to create an immersive work

which highlights some of the themes explored by John Flaxman in his

lectures and sculptures. The artists will be available for discussion

over drinks from 7pm. Part of the 'Petrie Museum on Tour' series.

Gen Doy’s artistic practice involves sound, sound installation and

performance, with a particular interest in sites with historical or

social significance. She has also made programmes for art radio stations

such as basic fm and resonance fm, and is currently working on a sound

installation with song for the dairy at Uppark House (National Trust),

near Petersfield , in the South of England,

Lynn Dennison’s practice uses film and installations to explore the

meanings created when the exterior enters the interior, when the

bucolic, arcadian and romantic connotations of land and seascape enter,

or encounter in other ways, the built environment. Her projections

invite spectators to experience buildings in a new way, and to immerse

themselves in provocative reveries.Let’s talk about love – specifically, why we should

Age group: Adults |Stories from the North

Explore the narratives that shape identity with this season of

contemporary Canadian cinema curated by UCL Art Museum in collaboration

with UCL English. Stories We Tell (2012)

In this deeply personal film about how our narratives shape and define

us as individuals and families, writer/director Sarah Polley discovers

that the truth depends on who's telling the story. Polley is both

filmmaker and detective as she investigates the secrets kept by her

family. As each relates their version of the family mythology,

present-day recollections shift into nostalgic glimpses of a mother who

departed too soon, leaving a trail of unanswered questions.

Age group: Adults |Join artists Kai Syng Tan and Jo Volley in a

hands-on, or rather, feet-on exercise exploring the links between

running, the runner’s high and creativity. Meet Kai at UCL and run/walk

with her to Hampstead Heath (approximately 3.5 miles).

As we run, we will share thoughts, personal anecdotes and speculations

about how running can be conducive to problem-solving or bring about

unusual modes of thinking that depart from how we think when we do not

move or run. At our destination, we run into Jo, who shows us where she

runs and looks out for oak apples that she uses in her artworks which we

proceed to see in her studio located nearby. Who knows, after this run,

you may run home feeling so energized that you go on to create a

masterpiece. Or two.
