Selected with Film Curator Alice Butler, she will also introduce each film and moderate a post-screening Q+A.

Film Details

Art School by Anna Lucas

United Kingdom, 2015

12 minutes, Colour, 

Shot over three years during rare breaks, before and after teaching, this film represents the generic spaces and facilities once seen in art schools up and down the country. In the absence of students it is the chipboard partitions in studio spaces, paint spattered chairs, the life-drawing studio, workshops and institutional offices that describe the work that takes place. All these spaces are imminently due for demolition and upgrade and the teaching methodologies themselves are being challenged and questioned. As the climate for the arts changes, new technologies emerge, and institutional expectations and requirements change, this model of Art School sits on the cusp of existence. *

Free! Booking can be done here or come on the day, subject to availability!

All screenings take place in Gallery 18.

Further information on other films in the programme can be found on our website
