You are warmly invited to an introductory talk by Wolfson's new Creative Arts Fellow, visual artist Carey Young.

Young's uses photography, video, performance, installation and print, and takes an interdisciplinary, collaborative approach, examining language, behaviours, architectures and theoretical frameworks related to law and business, as well as science and politics.

Recent work explores the relations between jurisprudence, materiality, gender and fiction. The talk will centre on a screening of her video ‘Palais de Justice’ (2017), which features female judges at Belgium's main courthouse, positing a speculative future in which women control the judicial system (on view in a solo exhibition at Towner Art Gallery, Eastbourne (Feb 17 to June 2).

Her work has been exhibited widely, including Tate Britain, Centre Pompidou, Whitechapel Gallery, MoMA/PS1 (NYC) and Walker Art Center (Minneapolis). She is an Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Law, Birkbeck and Associate Professor in Fine Art at the Slade, UCL.
