Delighted to be part of this really valuable day of presentation and discussion. Invited by #KierenReed and
I showed Art School but then in the discussion ended up talking about Workshop and Art School Kingston
There were some fantastic, animated and honest presentations from others, lots of questions, and good post presentation discussion.
A lovely email from the organisers at late at Tate St Ives about an event they screened Opi 21, Oopsy Daisy, Tiger Lily.
What a treat to be showing next to you! It was a great night.
We had 447 visitors (a record for a Late at Tate here) who stayed, who saw the films (well, the 50 who could fit in the screening space!), came to the talks by Dr Bramwell, stayed with the dance by Kuldip Singh-Barmi, watched Chloe Cooper’s performance, etc, etc.
It went really well. So great to have such a strong programme to share with visitors, and colleagues here. Naomi and I recognise the confidence this gives us as curators and for me particularly, I know it will play a crucial role in influencing the flavour of programming for the future at the gallery.
Our favourite quote on the night ‘This is the first time this Tate has felt like ‘Tate”!
Thank you Anna.
Best wishes, Mel.
Learning Curator, Tate St Ives
Art School was the premise for the exhibition of the same name at The Gallery, De Montfort University, 2017 Curated by Dr Stacy Boldrick and Hugo Worthy with MA students from Art Gallery and Museum studies at University of Leicester
I’m honoured to have a chapter case study in this book around the making of Gustav, Graham and Lee, commissioned by the brilliant Tate Schools and Teachers team. It’s a really rich collection of diverse artists projects.
What does a Learning programme in an art museum afford those who engage with it? In Site of Conversation is a detailed account of the practice of the Tate Learning team, as they work on promoting a space of exchange, conversation and ideas – where the individual learning of everyone involved is equally valued.
This book examines the broader questions, theories and concepts of in-gallery learning, examined in essays from Pat Thomson, Rebecca Solnit, Eve Sprague and Nicholas Addison. A useful learning resource for teachers, it also offers an insight into artist perspectives, with chapters by Harold Offeh, Jo Addison & Natasha Kidd, Anna Lucas and Alex Schady.
