Cultural Landscapes: Li Yuan-chia’s Cosmic Museum in Cumbria

Presentation by Prof. Mark Wilson and Aaron Tan (University of Cumbria)

The presentation by Professor Mark Wilson and PhD student Aaron Tan introduces and expands upon the significance of the LYC Museum and its utopic impulse, and its continued relevance to artistic and cultural practice today. Animated through images, anecdotes and material from Li’s archive, the LYC Museum is considered in its complex relationship to questions of identity, its environment and social engagement, mediated through Li’s idea of the ‘Cosmic Point’.
