For this week's Visiting Artist's Talk, we welcome Benedict Phillips.

Benedict Phillips is an established artist, mentor and consultant. His practice is eclectic, encompassing a broad range of methodologies, generating work as diverse as public art, performance, photography, and media art.

He is particularly concerned with the on-going interrelationship and shifting hierarchy between photography, sculpture and performance within his practice, and the aesthetics of each approach. Exploiting historical production processes as well as more recent digitally driven approaches informs the making of much of his work.

The Visiting Artists' Talks (VAT) series is organised by the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies. Talks take place every Monday afternoon during teaching weeks.

Each session brings an arts professional to talk with us about what they do and why, and to chat with the student body about their career journey and interests.

All of our talks are compulsory for our Fine Art students but are also open to anyone else who would like to join us.
