This is the fourth volume published from the annual series of lectures
organised by Sheffield Hallam University and Showroom Cinema, which features
leading and emerging artists and other practitioners discussing their
works in relation to a particular theme. This volume takes up two themes:
Provenance, which generally means the place of origin, and here takes
on rather more complex meanings in relation to art and art objects, and
the market or value systems that contain them; and Inscription, which
addresses the reading of works of art, when they are produced as texts
or incorporate text within them. Also included is a symposium on Inscription.
The Transmission series makes a significant contribution in mapping current
debates about contemporary art.
