Public Lecture Series


Inaugural Professorial Lecture Professor Alec Shepley

Wednesday 15th November 2017, 6pm, Catrin Finch Centre 

Alec is Head of the School of Creative Arts and Professor of Contemporary Art Practice at Wrexham Glyndwr University. Prior to his appointment at Wrexham Glyndwr University in March 2016 he was Head of Lincoln School of Art and Design at the University of Lincoln.

Alec's individual and collaborative Artistic Research has attracted funding from the Arts & Humanities Research Council, the British Council, the Arts Council of England and the Arts Council of Wales. His work has been exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally, with examples held in a number of public and private collections in North America, Europe and Asia.

Through extending the language of painting and sculpture his works become more a means of encounter rather than an end in themselves, providing a document of art as social engagement. Through intertwining reality and fiction, he produces improvised sites that are dialectically linked replies to one another within the wider field of action.

Alec is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a peer reviewer for the Austrain Science Fund's Programme for Art Based Research (PEEK), a Member of the National Association for Fine Art Education (NAFAE) and a Member of European League of Institutes of the Arts (ELIA)
