- Art is for now: temporary and situation-specific creative practiceCourse start date: Wed 20 Apr 2022
Location on this date: OnlineConventional notions of artworks as physical objects, which imply considerations of authorship, ownership and the spectator, are opposed in many senses by artworks and practices that are predicated on impermanence, or which subvert expectations due to the location or context in which they are encountered. This professional practice workshop is an opportunity, through a combination of presentation, and the participatory exchange of ideas and perspectives, to consider alternative modes of practice, and the possibilities presented by art that is made in, and for, the moment. We examine different interpretations of the word ‘temporary’, including concepts of relative duration, the ephemeral, and man-made demarcations, and look at specific examples of work by artists including Fluxus, Beuys, Kaprow, Collective Actions, Brugera, Marina, Goldsworthy and Tempest. We also consider our own work and ideas in relation to a range of concepts and examples of practice in which the ‘product’ is not necessarily an ‘art object’, which prioritise the act or event over what we might call the output, or in which impermanence or mutability are significant factors. These include; Merz; auto-destructive art; actions and events; sound sculpture; performance; land art.
The workshop begins with some participatory exercises, and it will be helpful to have a small selection of drawing implements to hand, and a selection of materials of your choosing (eg: paper, card, cardboard boxes, tape, ruler, string or wire, a cutting mat or hardboard…).
This course will be delivered online. See the ‘What is the course about?’ section in course details for more information.Full fee £89.00 Senior fee £89.00 Concession £89.00
