Call for contributions: Derek Jarman Protest! Symposium, 24 March 2022

Deadline for submissions: 14 February
Confirmation of participation:  25 February
Event: 24 March

Artist Jez Dolan is artist-in-residence at Manchester Art Gallery as part of the exhibition Derek Jarman Protest!, a major retrospective of one of the most influential figures in 20th century British culture.

As part of the residency Jez is collaborating with the Queer British Art Research Group to present a day-long symposium using the exhibition and Jarman’s practice as a leaping-off point for discussion, debate and interventions. The symposium will welcome artists, academics, curators, students, writers and those with a general interest in Jarman’s life, works and legacy. 

We are encouraging participation from practitioners from a wide range of backgrounds to submit outlines for presentations in any format. This could include: academic papers, performance or intervention, group discussion, practical workshop sessions and other formats we may not have thought of. We would ask that any presentation be dynamic and that it reflects Jarman’s life, work and legacy in some way.
