Potluck from 6pm in the first floor common room space at Islington Mill. Please bring a dish to share, can be home-cooked or shop bought (home cooked is nicer!) Plus BYOB. This will be followed by presentations in the gallery space from Maurice Carlin who will present recent work and Jenny Walden who will give a short talk on 'the hidden curriculum' within fine art education;

"Concern for a 'hidden curriculum' has arisen because in some ways fine art specifically may be less understood or less easily accommodated by the prevailing 'norms' of a university as a whole. 'Fine Art' is less easily slotted into discourses about 'employability' or 'instrumental' university education and the student as 'consumer'.

My paper looks at these issues very much from the point of view of art education happening 'somewhere else', other than the university.  Many college and university students participate in alternative spaces for art education, along side artists who may not have trodden the path of the fine art 'degree' in addition to their degree studies. IMAA being one example." Jenny Walden


Take a look at some of our past posts to see what the crits are all about - it;s a great way to meet others and get involved with the Art Academy.
