by Annabel McCourt
The Ferens Fine Art Lecture Series, is an established highlight in the University programme. Every year the series explores a different theme around art. This year we have chosen, ‘Realism in Art’.
Annabel McCourt is an artist whose work ranges from lens-based social-realism, through to installation art, moving image and architectural interventions inspired by fact, folklore & legend. Augmented and Virtual Reality are becoming increasingly creative tools to explore various aspects of the human experience. They can connect us to different places and different experiences and open up new possibilities. In this series we will hear from artists and curators how they explore reality in their work and what questions arise. The series will examine how different perspectives of reality in an artistic and creative context can be used to explore themes of responsibility, ethics and identity and how it can help us understand abstract, distant concepts.
