Working as an artist and educator since the 1970s, Roger Palmer is an artist who has pursued a multi-media approach to image-making, through photography, printmaking, wall-drawing and video. He has also made text works as site-specific signs, billboards, neon sculptures, LED panels, vinyls, temporary paintings and drawings. A comprehensive collection of Palmer’s artist’s books documenting various exhibition and projects are currently on display at The Tetley, Leeds.
Based in Glasgow, Palmer has participated in exhibitions and undertaken residencies in different international contexts, including several projects in South Africa. The range of works brought together for his show at The Tetley offer an insight into his four decades of research and practice, which have contributed to international debates on the representation of place and ideas of location and dislocation, migration and settlement.
The venue for the talk is Lecture Theatre A (Room 2.23) in the Houldsworth Building (Engineering), University of Leeds. Directions to the venue can be found online here.
