2017: Year In Review
2017 was a decidedly odd year. Outside the College, political, economic, social and environmental values that we had previously taken for granted appeared to be in constant, contested flux. In spite, or more likely, because of this, 2017 at Central Saint Martins has seen staff and students reach out beyond its walls to assert the power of creativity as an agent for change. From the upside-down art school at the Tate to the degree shows launching hundreds of careers, our students and staff worked with dedication, intelligence and ingenuity that can only leave one hopeful for the future.
Here is just a handful of the year’s highlights:
CSM curated the London Pavilion at the Shanghai Urban Space Art Season.
Fine Art took over a floor in Tate Modern's Switch House to present an alternative art school open to the public.
Culture and Enterprise
BA Culture, Criticism and Curation students worked on ‘Art in Large Doses,’ a project with Paintings in Hospitals.
Fundamentals series publicly debated the forces guiding the future of London.
