This panel discussion (2 Dec 2020) explored the legacy of ‘lost art schools’ in the UK, and the impact of small local art schools being subsumed into universities. Sean Kaye (co-curator with Ian Hartshorne of the “Fully Awake” exhibition series), chaired a conversation with Matthew Cornford (University of Brighton), Natasha Kidd (Bath Spa University), Zoë Mendelson (Wimbledon College of Arts) and Kathleen Mullaniff (Middlesex University).

Katarina Rankovic: Authors and Agents:

As we traverse a brief history of ideas about authorship, from artists’ reflexive practices, to nature’s algorithms and creative artificial intelligence, we’ll come to realise that the question of how contemporary artists conceive of their role today remains very much open - and that such questions can serve to fuel an inquisitive and exciting artistic practice.
