This is Live Art: DIY 13: 2016 - Oreet Ashery & Anna Colin ‘The Art Curriculum, Memory or Imagination’
Application Deadline: Monday 19 September (5pm)
Project Summary:

What can we learn from historical changes in art pedagogy and how can these apply to contemporary art practice, especially those which are immaterial and socially engaged? 

This 2-day workshop is set to performatively explore aspects of the Art Curriculum since the 1940s, such as the use of memory versus imagination in drawing exercises (‘draw a red pepper from your memory’  - or  - ‘draw a red pepper from your imagination’) and the implications those evolving educational approaches have on our understanding of art and its agency today. 

We will explore, discuss, analyze, reenact and undertake hands-on art related exercises found in the art curriculum.

The workshop is intended for anyone interested in art, performance, education, pedagogy and the social, political and philosophical trajectories of art education in the UK. We are looking for diverse participants who have a background or an interest in art, education, community or pedagogy.

The application includes writing a short statement on your current practice, or attaching a CV. We also ask you to include a drawing of a red pepper. 

For those wishing to apply from outside the region, the Old Manor House is 5 minutes walk from YSP, charging around £36 per night. Once we have a sense of potential participants we will provide further details regarding accommodation and possible car/lift shares.
