We’ve challenged special guest speakers to choose the five works in this year’s Summer Exhibition that intrigue them the most. Join them for a 30-minute tour of their selections.

The Summer Exhibition Edits are a series of afternoon tours in which special guests from diverse fields share their personal highlights of the 2016 Summer Exhibition.We invite you to accompany them as they describe why their five chosen works have captured their imagination.

This Edit is led by Dr Jen Harvie, Professor of Contemporary Theatre and Performance at Queen Mary University of London. Her research focuses on the cultural politics of performance and art and her numerous publications include Fair Play – Art, Performance and Neoliberalism (2013), Making Contemporary Theatre (co-editor, 2010), Theatre & the City (2009), The Routledge Companion to Theatre and Performance (co-author, 2006 & 2014), and Staging the UK (2005). Her most recent publication is a co-written book on the long performance career of renowned performance artist Lois Weaver; entitled The Only Way Home Is Through the Show: Performance Work of Lois Weaver.

Meet in the Central Hall of the Summer Exhibition.

A limited number of headsets are available and are offered on a first come first served basis.
