Tuesday Talk: Emily Speed

Join artists, thinkers and curators to explore an aspect of their practice in a lunch-hour. Visiting speakers shape the form of their talk, so you can expect anything from in-depth discussion to a live performance.


Emily Speed is interested in the relationship between people and buildings. Her work explores how a person is shaped by the buildings they have occupied and how a person occupies their own psychological space.

It's the personal touch people bring to the spaces they call home that this Liverpool-based artist is interested in. She addresses the medieval notion of the body as a house for the mind, but takes the idea further, looking at the way we imprint ourselves on the world around us.
