Towards a new concept of the Art School

The Precarious University/Chorlton Arts Festival, Sunday 22 May, 2016

The symposium aimed to form a critical discourse on the art school’s history and potential, and construct a radically open and popular concept of the art school for the 21st century within the unique surroundings of the Smallest Sculpture Park in the World, in a Chorlton back garden. The Precarious University is a collaboration between @.ac and Levenshulme Contemporary Art Centre, and the symposium was attended by artists, students and members of Islington Mill Art Academy and School of the Damned.  The resulting dialogue between participants is transcribed, in abridged form, here.

With: Andy Broadey, Jasmir Creed, David Daly, Dave Griffiths, Claire Hignett, Ahmed Hassan, Jane Lawson, Giles Marshall, Nathanial Mason, Richard Miles, Bob Nancollis, Dr Amanda Ravetz and Lisa Risbec.

I gave a talk about my practice sampling and remixing cue-dots to the Islington Mill Art Academy, a really cool self-organised DIY art school based in Salford.
