Site Gallery, Sheffield
Emma Cocker, The Yes of the No
Book launch — with a reading at 7 PM
Join Site for the book launch and a reading of The Yes of the No, the first collection of writing by Emma Cocker (published by Site Gallery, 2016). Existing in the space between imaginative proposition and a call to action, The Yes of the No is an assemblage of provocations, proposals and potential ways of operating — ranging from navigating the city and inhabiting the margins to errant acts of reading; from preparing for the unexpected to learning how to ‘not know’, from minor acts of singular sedition to collective expressions of an insurgent ‘we’.
Tuesday 24 January, 4.30 PM – 6 PM
Sheffield Hallam University, Pennine Theatre, City Campus
Prior to the book launch, Emma Cocker will give a lecture about the wider context of her practice as a writer-artist, as part of the Transmission Lecture Series, a series of free art lectures produced by Site Gallery in collaboration with Sheffield Hallam University’s Fine Art Department.
