CAAPO_ Dystopia: Are We Nearly There Yet?
Professional Development Event
The Importance of Process – Part 1 of 2
@ Milkwood Gallery – Thursday 27th October 6-8pm
.................. Social Event at the Albany Pub to follow
Free Event – please reserve a place by booking - email@example.com
Please join us for a low-key critical discussion on the importance of process in contemporary creative practice. Creatives of all varieties and levels are most welcome. The wonderful people at Milkwood (www.milkwoodgallery.com) will provide their usual warm hospitality with a variety of ‘freshments available .
CAAPO has commissioned UK based artist Ben Langworthy (benlangworthy.co.uk) to carry out a 3 week research residency in Milkwood Gallery’s Basement Space. Ben will be responding to the dystopian themes laid out in the project brief (see www.creativeassault.org for full details). The results of this residency will be developed into a month long solo exhibition, which will open on Friday 4th November.
It’s not the getting there.... it’s the finding out!
This duel seminar event will create an opportunity for local creative professionals, practicing amateurs and students to get together and discuss the importance of process; both in general terms and in relation to Ben’s work. ‘Part 1 of 2’ will investigate Ben’s workings, initiatives and responses over the first two weeks of the residency period. The second part (17th November) will review the initial discussion and evaluate the cognitive progression of Ben’s research and eventual outcomes.
Many educational institutions are moving towards fine art programmes that place great emphasis on conceptual development as opposed to skill building and material led investigation. Is this a pattern that will lead to a separation between roles as artist and technician; between architect and builder? CAAPO is interested to hear what people think about this.
The event will be followed by an informal social event at the Albany Pub (5 mins walk from the gallery).
