How can art reflect and change your environment?

About

Led by artist and writer Justin Hopper, develop your own language of landscape as we discover artists from 18th century to the present day transforming countryside and cityscapes alongside contemporary writers of non-fiction including Robert Macfarlane, Iain Sinclair, Jay Griffiths, and Rebecca Solnit. With special after-hours access to Tate Britain's newly unveiled BP Walk Through British Art, we look at works by John Constable, Richard Long, J.M.W. Turner, Gilbert & George and William Blake works in the L.S. Lowry exhibition. Could we re-imagine our surroundings through their images, words and wanderings? This five week course is for writers, artists and anyone interested in exploring their environment through writing and visual art. Justin Hopper is a freelance artist, writer and curator. His audio-poetry landscape artworks include Fourth River and the Public Record series. He has curated a groundbreaking exhibition by London writers and published scores of reviews and articles on contemporary art and culture.
