Read-Only Memory: Catherine Elwes, Tracey Emin, Sarah Lucas, Catherine Yass

A Mead Gallery Exhibition

Sat 29 Sep – Sat 1 Dec 2001

Many contemporary artists share Eleanor Anton’s conviction that life is art and art is life. Our complementary autumn term exhibition Read-Only Memory, explores fictional characters and narrative to question notions of identity.

Every few weeks, a singular work will be showing in the gallery that provokes question about real and implicit memory of our lives. The season opens with two works by Tracey Emin: ‘The Dress is Worth More Money than the Money’ and ‘Why I Never Became a Dancer’. These are followed by ‘Town Boxing’ by Catherine Yass, ‘Boy Scout Soldier’ by Catherine Elwes and a show of photographs by Sarah Lucas.
