As the continuing crisis in art education remains in the foreground of debates around art, the groundswell of interest in such discussions shows no signs of lessening in its significance. Reflections on the Art School seeks to engage with those debates, present recent research and provide a space for reflection.
The Art School Educated Research team invite you to join them for a full day of papers and discussions with artists, academics and museum professionals. This conference will explore the wider dimensions of art education in Britain and elsewhere. Bringing together scholars from Scotland, England and Sweden, the conference has a particular focus on developments post-1960. Papers will address questions of theory and practice, curriculum reform, agency, the educational turn, gender, and the social value of art education.
