Discussion: What Was Art School?
The importance of the art school in British cultural life will be explored in this informal event taking its cue from The Art Schools of North West England exhibition. Artists John Beck and Matthew Cornford introduce the exhibition’s themes and explore, with an invited panel including artists Pete Clarke and Jade Montserrat, questions including: where were the art schools and what has happened to them, what is the role of art education and the place of art in contemporary Britain?
