Transform your practice, both in and beyond your classroom, by spending three days working with artists to experiment with forms of presentation and active participation; looking, discussing, questioning, sharing, doing and making. Autumn School involves engaging with artwork in the Tate collection and includes access to the exhibitions. You will explore how this wide range of artwork, set within the context of the curated space, can be used as a way of informing and progressing ideas. Integral to the school is the learning community established through bringing together a diverse group of peers, at different stages in both their career and personal development, to create a space where being stuck is acceptable and even valued. For this year's Autumn School, artist filmmaker Anna Lucas has invited Giles Eldridge and Frances Scott to share how their art practice and processes are informed by photographic imagery. Studio- and gallery-based sessions will focus on an engagement with still and moving image work through re-interpreting, juxtaposition, documentation and dissemination. Central to the School is an engagement with the idea of the conditions we need to produce, setting the context for artistic production and interacting with the role of euphoria in the act of making. We will explore what informs our visual decision-making; considering subjectivity in the process of selecting and handling an image, and the role of coincidence in producing narratives. Alongside selected works in the Tate collection we will also investigate our enjoyment of cinema and its influences on art practice.
