MA Art in Public, public discussion, “Walking as Research – Research as Art”, chaired by Pauline Hadaway, Friday 13th April 5:30pm
The theme is “Walking as Research – Research as Art”. This is quite broad but based on what we have identified as distinct but connected aspects of our Vicinity Experience. In the first instance there was our practice of shared journeys on foot to gather material and generate encounters, we were fairly happy with this as an emerging methodology. Then there is the issue of transmuting this material somehow into “artworks” for presentation to a public, in this context in a gallery situation, and the effectiveness of the “Lab” concept as a link between research and presentation.
