Transmission is an annual series of lectures and symposia, now in its fourteenth year, and is a collaboration between Fine Art, the Art & Design Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University, and Site Gallery. This year’s lecture series takes up the places of art, its various locations and possibilities for location, which may be more than the linear trajectory of studio, gallery, collection. Perhaps art happens anywhere, everywhere, in the many interstices and detours between site of production and valorisation by institution.
