Event description

Description

Wednesday Talks at the Whitworth organised with Pavel Büchler.

As an artist and teacher Sean Kaye is a serial collaborator. In 1994 he founded with Steve Carrick, his colleague at Leeds College of Art (now re-branded as Leeds University of Arts), the collaborative partnership Leeds United. The pair later expanded their light-hearted and often humorous approach to 'institutional critique' onto other collaborations and assumed identities, such as L Foundation and MOMA. But it was in his role as a teacher on the excellent Fine Art Foundation programme at Leeds that Kay developed his interests in collaboration into an impressively effective pedagogy. With his former student, Harry Meadley, he devised an exhibitions programme committed to examining and fostering relationships between contemporary art and art education. While these exhibitions have drawn on the work of past and current students, his most recent project, Fully Awake, with Ian Hartshorne, lecturer at MMU, celebrates the inter-generational effect of teaching painting through exhibitions that present the work of tutors from UK art schools alongside those that they have been taught by and those that they have taught. After more then 20 years at Leeds, Kay will be shortly taking up a new post at British Higher School of Art and Design in Moscow.
