Sean ScullyThis event relates to the exhibition of works by Sean Scully running from 2nd March 2012 to 13th July 2012 with the title of 'Sean Scully: Change and Horizontals'. The drawings and paintings in this exhibition are characterised by geometric abstraction. They are also strongly rooted in notions of place, environment and architectural forms and raise questions about the extent to which works of art can embed processes of change.

In this lecture Dr Anderson, lecturer and journalist, describes the development of collage from the early twentieth century to the present day. The different functions of collage (formal experimentation, satire, nostalgia, political statement) and its many forms, both two- and three-dimensional- are explored. This artform is seen to derive much of its power from the way in which it decontextualises and reprocesses objects to give them new meaning.

Brett Littman, Director of the Drawing Center, and New York artist Lawrence Weiner discuss the ‘Drawing in Progress’ exhibition held at mima in 2010. A notable highlight of this show was a major commission for the 5002 metre glass façade of mima by Lawrence Weiner. After visiting Middlesbrough in May 2010 Weiner developed the 24-hour artwork A LINE IS A LINE FOR ALL THAT, 2010. This is the single largest commission ever produced by Weiner in the UK.
