Anat Ben-David is an artist-musician who recently staged an Opera at the V & A in London and was formerly a member of the group , ‘Chicks on Speed.’ Anat is focussed on the concept of Alienation involved in the creative process, wherin the artist allows the tools and materials involved in creation produce their own narratives. Examining lyrically performed text, voice, movement and compositions, her work often takes the form of live performance. Ben-David’s work has been presented internationally at Tate Britain; MoMA, New York; Migros Museum, Zurich; Borealis Festival, Bergen; and MoMAK, Kyoto.
The INSIDE/OUT series offers historical, theoretical and critical discussions about subjects and themes from numerous creative fields, including art, architecture, design, fashion, film, music and performing arts. Organised by Professors Simon Morris and Rob Shail from the Leeds School of Arts, the series offers a platform for internationally recognised practitioners to come and talk about their ideas and work. Events are open to all.
