LECTURE DESCRIPTION /
The presented visual essay will evoke memories of art history and lead you to reconsidering your own domestic space in this context. We will elevate your personal spaces to that of ‘art’ and give you the confidence to create work about your domestic space, within it, responding to it and showcasing it.
The visual essay will walk you round a typical domestic space, from entrance / front door though to attic by using images made by artists – many of which will be familiar and hopefully a few that will be new to you.
