Mary Paterson - On Movement

Tuesday 21 February 2017, 18:00 to 19:30

Our writer-in-residence Mary Paterson will talk about walking as a practice of writing, and writing as a practice of walking.

Together, writing and walking play a fundamental role in the creation of the modern subject. How do contemporary relationships between movement and language develop these modes of being, and seeing the world? Mary Paterson will give a performative talk about her own practice, followed by an audience Q&A.

Mary Paterson is a writer who works between critical writing, poetry and live art. She is currently Bristol Writer in Residence for the Art Writer's Programme, hosted by the Art Writers Group, Spike Island and Arnolfini, funded by Arts Council England. Here, she is continuing her research into the politics of movement and the etiquettes of public space, through a series of interviews, critical texts and public walking workshops.
