Falmouth School of Art Lectures - Sam Thorne
Wednesday, 30 September 2015 from 18:00 to 19:00 (BST)
Over the last decade, dozens of self-organised art schools have popped up all over the world, from Los Angeles to Beirut. They have taken many forms, from websites to nomadic structures to full-blown institutions. Sam Thorne, Artistic Director of Tate St Ives, will examine this recent flourishing, and ask what's next for the art school.
Thorne joined Tate St Ives in spring 2014 and leads on the gallery’s exhibitions and displays programme, research, and the wider public programme of learning and interpretation. He is a contributing editor at Frieze magazine, a visiting tutor at the Royal College of Art in London, has written numerous catalogue essays and has contributed to several magazines and journals. Before working for Tate he taught and lectured widely and was associate editor of Frieze magazine. In 2013 he co-founded Open School East, an independent study programme in east London.
We reserve the right to re-allocate un-filled seats five minutes before the event starts.
