ABOUT the exhibition:

YSP brings together two projects by artists Ruth Ewan and Oscar Murillo that explore the continued vital role of a creative approach to child development.

A new commission by Ewan references the philosophy of two of the most influential educators of the 20th century, Sir Alec Clegg and Sir Herbert Read, while Frequencies, an ever-evolving global project created by Murillo, in collaboration with students around the world, gives insight into what it’s like to grow up in different countries in the 21st century.

In Longside Gallery, Ewan’s participatory installation, Asking Out, recreates a Castleford primary school classroom from 1972. Inspired by the holdings of the National Arts Education Archive (NAEA) based at YSP, visitors are introduced to the pioneering teaching method ‘Asking Out’, a technique – developed by untrained Castleford teacher Muriel Pyrah, which invited children to speak out, ask questions and directly engage with each other.
