Talks & Events
1 - 3 July, 2017
For one weekend in July 2017 you will find Site Gallery by the water at Victoria Quays (formerly Sheffield Canal Basin). While we continue with building works to expand the gallery on Brown Street, we are bringing our events to you.
Thursday 25 May, 7 - 9pm
Site Sessions: The New Economies
Creative practice can be a powerful tool for change, but how do artists relate to economies and money, and is digital improving the picture? Andy Warhol stated that ‘good business is the best art’. Do we agree and embrace this idea? In this turbulent global moment, it’s time for a fresh and constructive look at art’s role in economies.
Thurs 27 April, 7 - 10pm
Site Sessions: Art, Science and The Truth
Who has the claim to what’s true, in these rational times? To what extent are art, science and belief “branches of the same tree” as Albert Einstein once said, and what happens when some of those branches begin to crack?
