Salon or Seminar

Tuesday 25th July 2006, 6pm

Why have a salon today?
Is it Elite? Political? Open? Anachronism?

As part of 'TURTLE - an anarchic salon by Michael H Shamberg', Salon or Seminar invites you to take part in a cultural dialogue that starts with the concept of the salon. We want to know who, what, when and where you think 'a salon' is or can be today.

David Blandy - artist
Gina Birch - filmmaker, songwriter
Joumana Mourad - choreographer
Sarah Sarhandi - composer and performer
Simon Field - film producer (currently working with Peter Sellars)
Simon Fisher Turner - musician
Stuart Comer - curator of film and video, Tate Modern
Michael H Shamberg - filmmaker/TURTLE initiator
Chaired by Cecilia Wee (Resonance FM, Rational Rec)

The debate is broadcast on London's art radio station Resonance FM
on Monday 31st July 7-8pm (BST): www.resonancefm.com or 104.4fm in London.

More information on Salon or Seminar - a series of cultural debates visiting different art venues in London in 2006 and 2007 (like an arty radio version of BBC's Question Time), go to: www.ceciliawee.com
