We are pleased to announce a MULTISTORY* Guest lecture by

Dr.Kristen Kreider & James O'Leary // Kreider + O'Leary

Thursday 25th January 2018 // Lecture 6pm // The Architecture Foyer

Kreider + O’Leary are a poet and an architect who collaborate to make performance, installation and time-based media work in relation to sites of architectural and cultural interest. Since 2003, they have made work in places such as prisons, military sites, film locations, landscape gardens, desert environments and more traditional gallery venues across the UK, USA, Europe, Australia, South America and Japan. Their work has been shown at venues including Tate Britain, Whitechapel Gallery and the Royal Academy of Arts as well as in the Lisbon Architecture Triennale and the Istanbul Biennial. Their book Falling was published by Copy Press, Field Poetics was published by Eros Press, and they are currently working on a large-scale project, Un-Governable Spaces, engaging with five sites of community and resistance globally. This project will result in a series of works and a monograph to be published by Paraclete.

Dr. Kristen Kreider is a writer and artist. Her work stems from an interest in the poetics of thought, its materialization as form, and a concern with how artworks relate to the world. Through her work as a writer, researcher and educator, Kristen works to promote an interdisciplinary, socially engaged approach to contemporary poetry and poetics, and to encourage a rigorous dialogue between creative and critical practice in contemporary art.

James O'Leary is an architect and installation artist. His work explores the inter-relationship between human beings and the spatial systems we inhabit. As a practitioner and academic operating between the disciplines of art and architecture, his specific interests include narrative, interactive and reflexive systems in architecture; performative and site-specific practice in contemporary fine art; and the codification and documentation systems deployed in these fields.
