As a senior lecturer on the BA Fine Art, I work with students to develop approaches to working in alternative contexts, helping them to learn some of the skills of a social and/or situation responsive practice. As the Unit 7 Leader, I also co-ordinate up to seventeen projects a year with partner hosts and artists, such as with Camden Arts Centre, the Petrie Museum, Wellcome, the National Gallery, Peckham Platform, the Warburg Institute, the British Museum and a local primary school. Here are some images from projects over the past ten years.
In 2020, students created work online during the Covid pandemic, such as:
Speaking in Tongues, with the National Gallery;
Art, Activism and Archive, with Autograph;
I Dance the Other, with Studio Wayne MacGregor
