Aesthetics of Evidence - Jason File in conversation with Jon Sharples at Simmons & Simmons


I'm excited to participate in an in-conversation event with Jon Sharples, hosted by the Simmons & Simmons Art Network at the start of Frieze Week this year. We'll be talking about artistic strategies for creatively using evidence or other legal-institutional materials as an artistic medium and what these strategies can teach us about the testimonial properties of objects and records; the way institutional process can dictate aesthetic outcomes; and the notion of performance inside the institutional machinery of truth seeking. The event will run from 7:00 - 8:30pm on 1 October 2018, at Simmons & Simmons, CityPoint, One Ropemaker Street, London, EC2Y 9SS. It's free, but ticketed -- tickets can be reserved here. I hope to see you there!
