Visiting Artist’s Talk – Harold Offeh

Instal shot: Harold Offeh, Covers: Playlist & Covers: Originals, both 2017

Harold Offeh is an artist who works with a range of media including performance, video, photography, learning and social arts practice. He often employs humour as a means to confront the viewer with historical narratives and contemporary cultural issues. His work explores the space created by inhabiting or embodying moments and figures from history.

Offeh has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally. This year his shows have included ‘Untitled: Art on the conditions of our time’ at New Art Exchange (Nottingham) and ‘Tous, des sangs-mêlés’ at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Val de Marne. He was the 2017 Open House residency artist at Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge and a summer artist in residence at Wysing Arts Centre. He studied Critical Fine Art Practice at Brighton and did an MA Fine Art at the Royal College of Art. He lives in Cambridge and works in London and Leeds.

The venue for this talk is Lecture Theatre F (G.74), Chemistry West Block, University of Leeds. Directions to the venue can be found online here.

The VAT series hosts talks by an exciting range of arts practitioners from around the world every Monday afternoon 14:00 to 15:30 during teaching weeks.

All of our talks are compulsory for all Fine Art students but open to anyone else who would like to join us.
