Transmission – Zero Hours: What Artists Do – Fine Art Lecture Series

Tue 08 October
16:15 – 17:45

Pennine Lecture Theatre, Sheffield Hallam University

From October 2012 to March 2013 Sheffield Hallam’s Fine Art Transmission Lecture Series was a discursive platform to address the theme of AGENCY (Labour, Work, Action), developed in collaboration with Art Sheffield 2013.

This year the series follows this collaboration to consider Art Sheffield’s theme of ZERO HOURS, adding the sub-title: what artists do. Artists may be on call with no set minimum hours, but at whose call? What is on-call time, stand-by time, or down-time for an artist? How does an artist clock-off? How might we be sure an artist is working?

This year’s Transmission speakers include Oliver Ressler, Simon Martin and The Grantchester Pottery. All talks are free and open to the public.

The full programme for the autumn semester will be published at
