Dave Beech is an artist in the collective Free (with Andy Hewitt and Mel Jordan), as well as a writer and curator. He has written widely on the politics of art, including The Philistine Controversy (Verso, 2002, co-authored with John Roberts) and on the legacy of the avant-garde and conceptualism. Beech’s lecture is presented by the Rennie Collection Distinguished Visiting Art Program.

The lecture segues into a concurrent event at the Audain Art Centre: the opening of the MFA exhibition Rhyme Schematic, in the AHVA Gallery (Room 1001).

The Distinguished Visiting Artist Program is made possible by the generous support of the Rennie Collection.

Event is free and open to the public.
