1. SPRING EVENT 2015: UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
The 2015 Spring Event of the Society for Artistic Research at Chelsea College of Arts, University of the Arts, London
The SAR 2015 spring event brings some Unconditional Love via artistic research to London in partnership with the University of the Arts London. The SAR General Assembly will be held on 2nd May at Double Tree Westminster Hotel, 30 John Islip Street, London SW1P 4DD
Unconditional Love will explore how caring and attention is expressed in such practices as artistic research, open access, auditing, peer-reviewing and critique, as well as the tug of war between science, magic and art on the issue of love.
Four sessions: two per day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon are curated by invited artists and researchers. They offer different formats and examples of artistic research and discussions on the role and impact of artistic research. Central to the event is the notion of unconditional love, which could mean a commitment to the dynamics of open and engaged exchange, or an obsessive pursuit of the unattainable.
Unconditional Love will take place at the Chelsea College of Arts next to Tate Britain at Millbank, centrally situated on the River Thames.

4. THE DARK PRECURSOR: INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DELEUZE AND ARTISTIC RESEARCH (DARE 2015)
The Dark Precursor: International Conference on Deleuze and Artistic Research (DARE 2015) explores possibilities, uses and appropriations of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s philosophy in the field of Artistic Research. Hosted by the Orpheus Research Centre in Music and MusicExperiment21, DARE 2015 will take place from 9th to the 11th November 2015 at the Orpheus Institute in Ghent (Belgium). As references to Deleuze’s philosophy, alone or in collaboration with Guattari, have become frequent across the varied expressions of artistic research, the conference aims to identify, trace and map concepts and practices that connect artistic research projects to their philosophy, both from the scholar and the practitioner’s perspectives. The Orpheus Institute is the European leading center for artistic research in music, home to the docARTES doctoral program, the Orpheus Research Centre in Music (ORCiM) and the MusicExperiment21 project funded by the European Research Council.
