Hayward Class

Project for Wide Open School
Hayward Gallery, London
2012

The class/project focused on Art and Social Practice, a term used to describe site-specific, participatory, interdisciplinary, and publicly accessible art projects and practices. I explained and addressed a variety of topics related to Art and Social Practice, from the perspective of my own and others’ related work.

The first day analysed the differences between Art and Social Practice and more traditional studio/gallery models; the second day focused on site, situation, context specificity, and the idea of artists-in-residence as models for working within specific communities; the third day looked at collaboration, participation, and interaction; the fourth day explored the relationship between art institutions and participatory art works, and the final day was be about the role of education in Art and Social Practice.
