Studio 3: Conversations with Culture

Digital Rain Feedback ‬‬

Show overview

Over the year, we have explored a variety of themes and ways of working within the studio. We have worked on projects in painting, collage, video and conceptual art and explored ethnographic approaches to folk art and culture, re-enactment as a strategy for artists, the legacy of dada, post-internet art and the history of the art school. In reading seminars, tutorials, lectures, crits and demonstrations we have dealt with the relationship between art, the market, consumerism, technology and political power. We have visited a long list of exhibitions, including Hannah Höch, Reflections from Damaged Life: an exhibition on psychedelia at Raven Row and Dear Art at Calvert 22. However, throughout, we have remained committed to a holistic approach, wherein students have had the opportunity to develop their independent practices in relation to the entire cohort of students, not separately from it. Therefore the work by students from the Conversations with Culture studio is not differentiated from work by students in other studios, but nourished by and enmeshed with that of their peers.
