Writing, Problem, Figure
Professor Yve Lomax
Someone once said that it is important that you invent your own questions. This someone who once said was a wonderful reader, not only of philosophical writings but more, much more, besides. And how he wrote! His prénom was Gilles and he did indeed say that if you aren’t allowed ‘to invent your questions, with elements from all over the place… if people “pose” them to you, you haven’t much to say’ …
Yve Lomax was educated at Saint Martins School of Art in Painting and the Royal College of Art, where in 1979 she received her Masters in Environmental Media. She has exhibited internationally and published widely. She is author of four books: Pure Means: Writing, Photographs and an Insurrection of Being (October 2013); Writing the Image: An Adventure with Art and Theory (2000); Sounding the Event: Escapades in Dialogue and Matters of Art, Nature and Time (2005) and Passionate Being: Language, Singularity and Perseverance (2010). Her exhibitions include: Three Perspectives on Photography (1979); Difference: On Representation and Sexuality (1984) and Sometimes (1995), a large photographic work shown in Johannesburg, Edinburgh Austria and Australia. She is a commissioning editor for the Common Intellectual series published by the independent publishing company Copy Press (http://www.copypress.co.uk). She is also Professor in Art Writing at Goldsmiths College.

A Series of Three Lectures on Creative Critical Writing
This series of three lectures is intended to highlight different modes of critical writing, emphasising the creativity inherent in our materialisation of thought. Topics vary as esteemed guests from across the disciplines of Art, Performance and Poetry offer a unique contribution to the series. While intended for postgraduate practice-based research students in the Arts, the series is open to a wider audience of academics and practitioners curious to explore the intersection between creativity and criticality at the point of writing.

Lecture 2, Dr. Ric Allsopp, 19th February, 6.00pm-8.00pm

Organised by Dr. Kristen Kreider for the Practice-based PhD Programme at Royal Holloway, University of London, this series is funded by the Departments of Drama & Theatre, English, Media Arts and Music.
