InSEA 2023 Fault Lines, Canakkale Turkey
Outcomes Together: Campus Artist In Residence x3
Latest paper delivered at Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University Faculty of Fine Art, Canakkale in Turkey.
We will look at a range of visual stories and experiences that international artists and curators developed during three residencies. We will reflect on a series of questions around the final exhibition, including; the gallery/exhibition space as a site for learning, visual art practice as research; art making as a dialogue; collaboration across multiple languages and cultures; differences and similarities in international art education.
Campus Artist in Residence (CAIR) was a collaborative project between The University of Tsukuba Art & Design students and UCL PGCE Art & Design students and ran for 3 year's (2020, 2021 & 2022). The programme was designed to facilitate a global exposure of art education and art practice for the artist and curator participants. 2020 was a 10-day programme conducted face to face on the University of Tsukuba campus, whilst 2021 & 2022 were both online. ‘Outcomes Together: CAIR x3’ was a visual art exhibition in Feb 2023 that documents the three year's of inquiry and was curated around 5 themes, in an attempt to try to give a sense of the learning and knowledge generated, the varied work produced and the community of practice developed; Reflecting Together; Changing Together; Talking Together; Making Together; Being Together. In the presentation we tell a range of visual stories and experiences that the artists and curators developed during the residencies. We will reflect on a series of questions around these visual outcomes, including; the gallery/exhibition space as a site for learning, visual art practice as research; art making as a dialogue; collaboration across multiple languages and cultures; differences and similarities in international art education. Ash & Minowa will engage in a discussion about the experience and try to reveal their understandings and reactions to the exhibition as both researchers/observers and participants in the programme. They will analyse the findings from the exhibition and offer possible suggestions for future international student artist residency collaborations.
