The Modern Language Experiment presents
Sudo, in its purest form, evokes ownership ‘su’ and action ‘do’.
As the education sector in the UK moves into a new unprecedented period of change we feel that it is important to take ownership of our own educational paths and evoke action.
We are pleased to present “sudo document”, a four month educational programme consisting of a series of lectures and talks that will allow accessibility to the thoughts, ideologies and pedagogical studies of important Curators, Artists and Gallerists throughout the UK working both independently or through institutions.
These lectures, once presented, will be edited and broadcast immediately in the gallery on a continuous loop serving as both a ‘sudo document’ and a reference video to be viewed at all times during the galleries opening hours.
These lectures and talks will then form a publication that will be launched after the educational programme is completed; this will feature an over view of the programme as well as artworks and writings from all the contributors. This will be made available for reference at educational Libraries and also for sale in bookshops.
Carlos Noronha Feio - Has a diverse practice that includes actions, performance, video, drawing, painting, photography and installation as research into cultural, local and global identity. He frequently adopts culturally significant images, locations and symbols as a form of creative interference with meaning, and demonstrates the almost arbitrary nature in which cultural significance is adopted or interpreted. Noronha Feio runs The Mews Project Space, an artist run project in an out building located in an alley at the back of the newly refurbished Whitechapel Art Gallery.
He is currently doing a PhD at the Royal College of Art where he is researching dispositifs that artists and non artists alike can assimilate and disseminate. Enabling them to employ in a non abstract manner, strategies that empower the individual in relation to the modern state, to the Sovereign.
For this talk, Noronha Feio will be speaking about his Art4Debt project, and the way that utilising the language of finance a sense of true Global citizenry, of borderlesness and real accountability can be reached.
