Stories in the Place of Art Criticism Part II

The Summer Study Sessions are an opportunity to take part in collective reading and develop critical creative writing. Departing from the art writing of author and philosopher Hélène Cixous, they are led by visiting academic Sarah Jackson (NTU) and incorporate a workshop with live describer Ann Hornsby, who will help members of the group to script an exhibition tour.
