Free and open to all, our annual artist lecture series in collaboration with Sheffield Hallam University Fine Art Department begins on 9 October 2018, with Phoebe Davies and Angelica Sule in conversation:
Phoebe Davies is a Welsh artist and researcher, based at Somerset House Studios in London. Her practice investigates people’s perceptions of their social framing, and she frequently uses collaboration, collective action, and Do It Together strategies to make work with individuals, groups and communities. Davies often references and explores collaborative models of working across sectors, drawing on methodologies from feminisms, organic farming, and sports. Recent projects have led her to work with sex educators, secondary school students, elderly residents in care homes, sports teams and DJs as well as art spaces and institutions. The nal forms of Davies’s work are project dependent, and have included live performances, video, audio, print works and constructed social spaces. She currently co-facilitates three research groups: Bedfellows, a radical sex re-education research project; Synaptic Island, a London-based female/non-binary DJ collective; and Art is Action, a UK-based social practice research group.
Angelica Sule is a curator and writer. Her curatorial practice and research is concerned with how an exhibition may be more active, a place of production rather than a nished entity. She previously worked at Nottingham Contemporary and completed the Young Curators Residency Programme at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in 2015. She graduated from the Royal College of Art, London in 2014.

Transmission is an annual series of lectures and symposia, now in its fifteenth year, and is a collaboration between Fine Art, the Art & Design Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University, and Site Gallery. Convened by Sharon Kivland in 2001, Transmission was developed collaboratively with Lesley Sanderson and with Jasper Joseph-Lester from 2004 to 2012. The series is now convened by Sharon Kivland, TC McCormack, Hester Reeve, and Julie Westerman, in association with Site Gallery, Sheffeld. The lecture series has an annual theme, and involves students from Fine Art, from undergraduates to PhDs.
