Keynote Speakers

Les Bicknell

Les has an extensive history of making that explores the concept of bookness. His exploration of the hybrid nature of the book form has led to undertaking an extensive range of commissions and exhibitions.

The work has been exhibited widely, and is held in many National and international collections including The Rijksmuseum, The V&A Museum, M.O.M.A. New York, Yale Centre for British Art, The Tate Gallery.

His practice includes large scale public art commissions and an extensive history of working within community engagement initiatives.

A desire to collaborate underpins his work, evidenced by his engagement with a wide range of socially engaged situations both within formal education and outside.

Current education posts; Senior Lecturer Textiles Design BA and MA at NUA, Course Leader Camberwell Book Art MA UAL and Year Tutor MA Fine Art Course OCA.
