Explore various contemporary art galleries and exhibition spaces, commercial galleries and museums. Each week you will visit a different exhibition exploring a variety of themes, ideas, artists and fine art practices – such as painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, photography and film. The focus of the course is to discuss the works on display in an informed way. Most sessions include short talks on the artist/ works and themes as well as facilitated group discussion. Although the focus of the course is on contemporary art, sessions occasionally explore art produced during various periods of the 20th century.
Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
Please note this course will take place online. You will be looking at, discussing and enjoying international contemporary art using a wide array of materials shared online.
Many cultural institutions are, through necessity or design, engaging with the public via the internet, transferring content to the virtual world in online collections and VR galleries.
This course will explore this rich resource of cultural engagement. Each week will focus on an artist or an institution whose work is available online. Each class will be hosted on MS Teams and will begin with an introduction to the artist(s) and/or institution and potential themes to be explored. You will have time to view artworks before discussing works on display through a facilitated group discussion.
The aim of the course is to analyse and discuss the artworks in a meaningful way, within a supportive and friendly group environment.
