Concerning the Bodyguard: 25-26 October 2014, The Tetley, Leeds

Concerning the Bodyguard: 

How Not to be Distant

25 – 26 October 2014 

The Tetley, Leeds

This two-day symposium will open up conversation about the freedom to be vulnerable, sentimental and honest in light of other powerful modes such as paranoid, cynical and defensive.

Over the weekend three invited speakers and a selection of Concerning the Bodyguard artists will instigate discussion and debate with an audience by responding to the theme and works in the exhibition from the point of view of their own research and by opening up broader conversations.

The symposium emerges from Concerning the Bodyguard, a large-scale group exhibition currently at The Tetley. The exhibition takes the American writer Donald Bathelme’s short story of the same name as a provocative starting point to consider how current modes of expression assume the distanced observer and represent, protect and expose the vulnerable subject.

The symposium will be held at The Tetley, Leeds, 25-26 October 2014, 1pm – 5pm.

The event is free and refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to rsvp@concerningthebodyguard.co.uk.
