What is Art – A Crash Course in Brain Surgery (A User’s Guide)
Admission Fee: £20 orgs / £10 artists / £5 student
Booking essential www.vasw.org.uk
What is Art? is a user’s guide, a crash course in brain surgery, with a fun, provocative back to basics approach. A series of quick fire presentations will scratch a fundamental itch for razor sharp thinking and robust critical debate on three key questions:
What is an Artist?
What is Good Art?
Who, What and Where is the Audience?
The topics will be introduced by the invited speakers and followed by a series of Pecha Kuchas – 20 images, 20 seconds each, a six minute provocation, a call to action.
Proposed Pecha Kucha sessions asking probing questions include:
What Do Museums Do All Day? / Why I Voted Brexit / How Much Do Artists Get Paid? / Why I Stopped Being An Artist / What is British Art? / What is an Art School? / What Is The Point Of Education? / How I Can Get You Funding / What Do Young People Think? / What Does Artist Led Mean Anymore? / Just What Is A Curator? / What Does Socially Engaged Actually Mean?
