Description

Art at Oxford Saïd: Julie Brook

Outer reaches: A sculptural journey across continents from the Hebrides to Japan

Wednesday 24 January 2018, 5.45 - 6.45pm

Art at Oxford Saïd is a series of fine art which aims to inspire students, faculty and the wider community and create a dialogue between business and art. We are pleased to welcome British artist Julie Brook to speak on Wednesday 24 January.



About the talk


Julie Brook will talk about her land based sculptural work in wild and remote landscapes in Scotland and Africa and give some insight in to her current projects in the Hebrides and Japan.

She responds directly to the specific nature of her environments expressing those influences through the sculptural work and large scale drawings she makes from the materials she finds. She is primarily concerned with how the forms are influenced by the more temporal elements such as light and shadow; climate and tidal changes.


About the event


The event is open to all and will take place at Saïd Business School followed by a short networking drinks reception until around 7.30pm. Registration is essential so please use the Register button above to confirm your attendance.

Seating will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis in the main auditorium. If the event is oversubscribed the talk will be beamed live in to an adjoining room and there will be a facility to submit questions at the end of the talk. Late arrivals will be directed to this space so that the talk is not disrupted.
