Dislocating Specificity

  • Kristen Kreider (Participant)

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in conference


This day of site-specific conferencing was initiated by Penny Florence, Director of Research at the Slade School of Fine Art and Jane Rendell, Director of Architectural Research at the Bartlett School of Architecture, as the first of a series of annual collaborative conferences between post-graduate students at the Slade and the Bartlett. The event was led by PhD students of the Slade School of Fine Art and the Bartlett School of Architecture and took place at UCL on Friday 17 September 2004, starting at 9.30am with coffee in the Slade Gallery and ending with a plenary session lead by Dr Marsha Meskimmon at 5.00pm, followed by drinks.

The starting point, an invitation to engage with a location in UCL, resulted in proposals for installations involving different materials and processes, from mosses to voices, from metereology to memorialisation, extending debates around site-specificity into the production of practice-based research within the academic institution.
