This month's Nought to Sixty salon discussion is organised by Dr Paul O'Neill and Mick Wilson whose practices span art, curating, writing and teaching. The event will take the form of a roundtable, bringing together Sarah Pierce (artist), Dave Beech (artist, Freee), Andrea Phillips (assistant director, MFA Curating, Goldsmiths), Liam Gillick (artist) and Professor Adrian Rifkin (writer and educator), to explore the significance of this recent 'educational turn' in criticism, art and emerging curatorial practice.
The panel will ask how and why artists and curators are turning to education as space of potentiality for the development of new critical practice. Highlighting the proliferation of discursive events, lectures, panel discussions, and conferences as part of the expanded field of art, this discussion will encompass the current state of art education, as well as the notion of art and curating as critical pedagogical praxis.
