Summer Study Abroad – CSM

Monday, 10 October 2011 – Saturday, 22 October 2011

During summer 2011, Campbell Works will be collaborating with Central St Martins and Claire Nichols on the Summer Study Abroad programme – Art History, Criticism and Communication.

10 Students have enrolled on the course through Central St Martins, summer programme and will take the current exhibition Know How at Campbell Works as their starting point for the creation and production of a new publication, acting as an extension to the exhibition.

The course is designed and run by Claire Nichols who runs the esteemed Empty Gallery Interviews.

This course is for students who are looking to enhance their engagement with and understanding of contemporary visual practice and theory.

The course assists you in contextualising and developing your ideas about art through an array of visual and critical lenses, from modernist art history to contemporary cultural theory and conceptual practice. A series of informal seminars and one-to-one tutorials will help focus your research.

The group will engage with a stimulating array of activities to trigger creative links with London’s rich contemporary visual and material culture, from gallery, museum and special archive visits to sessions working alongside professional artists, curators, writers and publishers.

The course is open to students with varying experience and will help those looking to study Art History, Curating and Communications in the Arts. Students will build a deeper understanding and working knowledge of contemporary artistic practice, with confidence as well as a key network of cultural resources and connections.

Claire Nichols is a practising artist and an independent curator. She teaches across BA Part-Time Programmes at the London College of Fashion.
