Chila Burman exhibition

Artist Chila Burman gives a tour through her exhibition, Ghosts. Unfortunately the iPhone it was recorded on stopped recording because it was full! However the first 25 minutes was captured and gives a flavour of the generosity of Chila in giving over 2 hours of her time to reveal much about her work.

UAL Joint Chairs of Black Art and Design Paul Goodwin and Sonia Boyce Present: GHOSTS

Ghosts is a new year-long series of single work and focused displays featuring key art works from a range of British Black and Asian artists exploring ideas around technologies, subjectivities and contemporary art practice.

Lozano-Hemmer

Carroll Fletcher Gallery delivers another great exhibition, this time Raphael Lozano-Hemmer, the Mexican-Canadian artist focusing on sound work, in the exhibition ‘Obra’. Course leader Jonathan Kearney was able to discuss the exhibition with Lozano-Hemmer on one of  the artist’s brief visits to London and then lead a guided tour round the exhibition for the Fine Art Digital students.

Visit to Grizedale Arts

Grizedale Arts is a long established curatorial project based around Coniston, a village in the Lake District of North West England. We had the opportunity to visit for 2 days to discuss their innovative and challenging approach to an art project. Our visit included a tour of their farm, a meal prepared with food from that farm and other local sources, discussions about the art world, visit to the Ruskin museum and lots of tea drinking!
Grizedale Arts challenges many of the preconceived ideas of what the art world is or should be, this visit was invaluable for exploring this.

Big thanks to Alistair Hudson, Pippa Martin and Adam Sutherland.

An amazing example of John Ruskin‘s ‘powerpoints’ of the Victorian age. These huge drawings were used in his lectures to illustrate his points and also handed around the audience.
