As suggested by the title of the lecture, an introduction to the lecture series “Transmission”, in collaboration with the site gallery to be held every Tuesday from 4.30pm – 6.30pm.
The topic of the Transmission series lectures is “An Unsentimental Education: on becoming an Artist”, from this title I presumed that the guest speakers attending would talk about their previous education in art and then discuss whether it had effected their practice and if look back on that time fondly as inspiration.
Various Lecturers stood at the front and each took turns to speak. Each lecturer introduced the topic in different ways; Gary started by reciting a Poem, Col described his ideal Art School and studio space and Hester talked about her residency at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, and another lecturer talked about past Art Schools, showing images of a school in Manchester in 1800’s, a photo depicting three students with notes pinned on their uniforms, “votes for women “showing their sense of rebellion which has carried on through the years with a catalyst of individuality. All very different approaches to the topic and how they interpreted it in their own way and how they individually perceived it , which I thought to be very interesting.
We were then finally presented the list of all the guest speakers who will be attending the Transmission series;
