Image Reading Group, 22 July 2014

For this ‘Image Reading Group’ session, we took advantage of the summer weather and held it outdoors in the Islington Mill courtyard. Images were presented by three members - Jared, Claire and Maurice - which again sparked some interesting discussions around the wider context for the images.

'Studio Group' at the railway arches near Islington Mill, 8th July 2014

‘Studio Group’ is a regular Art Academy activity, exploring new possibilities for how, when and where artwork is made, and questioning the traditional role of the artists studio in this process. Temporary group ‘studio’ sessions are sited in unorthodox settings, often in public space, and are followed by a discussion and sharing of the work that each person has made during the time.
