Abstract or Description
This round-table event taking place at the Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media on the afternoon of Friday September 26th provides an opportunity to reflect on the current practices and debates in art education. Questions proposed to the participants include: What should we expect from contemporary art education? What relationship should art teaching have to art practice? Are there different - perhaps better? - ways to study contemporary art than through formal art education as currently constituted? Where is the important critical thinking and experiment in art education taking place now? For whom is art education produced? What should art education's response be to the changing landscape of higher education? How might art education respond to broader developments within contemporary art beyond the teaching and research institutions?
