Mark Prince investigates art that uses language, and discusses the ways that narrative manifests itself in contemporary art.
Coline Milliard reports back from Falmouth Convention organised by Teresa Gleadow with University College Falmouth. Artists, critics and curators gathered to discuss whether a bid to host Manifesta in Cornwall in 2014 was viable, or even worthwhile. Faces around the debating table included writer Lucy Lippard, artist Tacita Dean, Director of the Banff Centre in Canada Kitty Scott, director of Grizedale arts Adam Sutherland and co-curator of Manifesta 8 Bassam El Baroni.
The debate quickly zoned in on the central question: are residencies worthwhile? Is the work produced on residencies likely to benefit the local community – who are, after all, stumping up the bill. Cornwall have been told that they would have to find a cool 3m euros is they want to host Manifesta in 2014.
