Practices of Enquiry
Making UAL Teaching Visible

9 January – 27 January 2017
UAL Showroom

Practices of Enquiry is UAL’s first exhibition of teaching. A team of students, graduates and staff have worked together to visually translate the teaching methods of several tutors into a series of installations and displays. In November 2016 the exhibition was shown at Chelsea’s Cookhouse Gallery, where a week-long events programme showcased the practice of teaching to students and staff. Now in its second iteration, the exhibition demonstrates what UAL teaching has to offer via graphic displays, video documentaries, audio guides and original student produced artworks.

Curator's Tours

Key members of the student–staff team behind ‘Practices of Enquiry’, UAL’s first exhibition of teaching will lead 2 guided tours. The tour will provide context to the student–staff collaborative processes behind the project; explain the thinking behind each of the 9 exhibits; and invite discussion about how we share teaching practice.

Tours take place:

1 - 2pm on 18 January - Book here
5 - 6pm on 23 January - Book here
