Previously at the ICA - Events
14 May 2015
Ruth Beale will give a presentation reflecting on the ideas, concepts and symbolism in her solo show, calling in immediate and long-term responses. Between an artist's talk and a performative lecture, the presentation will plot links and cross-references between subversive librarianship, Thomas More's Utopian alphabet, the notion of the commons, knowledge production and futurology.
