Where in art education does the education take place?
A panel discussion with London's BA Fine Art Course Leaders:
John Timberlake (Middlesex); John Aiken (Slade); Mo Throp (Chelsea); Andrew Bannister (Sculpture Pathway Leader City & Guilds); Louis Nixon (Kingston); Rosemarie McGoldrick (Cass); Stephen Carter (Byam Shaw/CSM); Sarah Rowles (Director Q-Art London)
Saturday 23rd June
2.00-5.30pm, (Drinks reception from 4pm).
Over the last two or three years there has been an explosion of conferences and editorial content examining the perceived ‘crisis’ in art education and speculating on the causes of student dissatisfaction. The tutors will give their views on the crisis and discuss questions posed in the book such as:
How does current pedagogical practice compare with their own art school education? Why is art education the way it is today and what are it’s philosophies? How does art education influence the work we see in contemporary art galleries? How does it sit with public perception of art and how does one come to produce contemporary art? How do the course leaders evaluate art? How will the impending tuition fee increase affect those who are thinking about studying art? What influence does an institutions reputation and branding have on students?
The event is also the launch of the book:
11 Course Leaders: 20 Questions
A collection of interviews with 11 London BA Fine Art Course Leaders. Interviews and Foreword by Sarah Rowles. Introduction by Patricia Bickers (Editor, Art Monthly).
Book Launch Price: £10
