Departed Acts is a performance-lecture series that invites Victorian artists, writers and curators to recall the experience of a pivotal exhibition or artwork that has influenced their practice. Departed Acts embraces poetic, emotional, contentious, and contradictory readings as important components in mnemonic thought processes.
Rather than focussing on objective testimony, Departed Acts embraces the tangential nature of recollection, allowing for the factual and fictitious to intertwine. Intended as an open-ended, train-of-thought exercise, Departed Acts allows space for a personal, freely associative discourse on an experience of a creative work.
