most but not quite all of the students

First day and lots of introductions as people who have only met online meet face to face for the first time. The London based students have been working on curating the Lumen Art Prize exhibition later in March so that took some of our initial focus. This project has helped raised some great issues for the students from the practical considerations of presenting work that uses a range of technology alongside more traditional work. As hoped there has also been a wider debate around important concerns including curatorial narrative for a show, is this a show simply to showcase winners or something to help explore questions, alongside issues like immateriality or time and space and do any themes emerge for a selection like this.

In the afternoon many students presented recent work which lead to much discussion, debate a funny one liner. One student was talking about their struggle with oil paint in a particular painting and another student who uses oil a lot instantly responded, ‘oil is a bitch’!

We concluded a long first day with a meal together at Course Leader Jonathan’s home.
