Exhibition: Home and Away

This exhibition took place in the window galleries at Central Saint Martins and was curated by Stage one BA Culture, Criticism and Curation students.

Home And Away

Two groups of BA Culture, Criticism and Curation Stage one students were selected to realise their first exhibition proposals for the window galleries at Central Saint Martins. The project asked students to devise a curatorial proposal for the window spaces based on their relationships to London and their home towns/cities.

Exhibition: This New Feeling

Curated by BA Culture, Criticism and Curation students, This New Feeling was inspired by today’s generation of ‘nostalgic futurists’.

This New Feeling  

Speaking on the degree show, BA Culture, Criticism and Curation students said: 

“The exhibition examined the way in which boundaries have become increasingly blurred between tradition and modernity in contemporary art practices. As a generation born with technology integrated into our everyday lives we constantly drive a fast trajectory into the future’s digital dimensions, but at the same time we romanticise and reflect upon the handcrafted traditions of the past. This exhibition proposes no answer to the metaxy of a plugged-in society, but rather invites the audience to consciously oscillate between these two positions in order to experience This New Feeling” 

This New Feeling took the form of an exhibition, an online publication and symposium. 

The exhibition featured works by:

  • Tully Arnot
  • Jeremy Bailey
  • Persijn Broersen & Margit Lukacs

Talk: Big Bucks: The Explosion of the Art Market in the 21st Century

In January 2015, an in-conversation event was held at LVMH Lecture Theatre at Central Saint Martins

At his event, Georgina Adam talked about the writing of Big Bucks: The Explosion of the Art Market in the 21st Century in conversation with Stephanie Dieckvoss, Stage 1 Leader. This in-conversation event explored Georgina's motivations for writing about the dramatic changes in the art market over the last decade. The talk will also touch upon the different modes of writing: from auction sales reports in the Finacial Times, to what has been lauded as ‘a lively view of today’s craziness’ by one of the art world’s ‘smartest art market commentators’.
