The programme for the 2017 Cornwall Workshop will include discussions, excursions and activities led by the artist Christina Mackie, shaped by her interest in materials and processes, and in observing and activating the subtle chains of association through which things relate to one another – intuitively or formally.
The workshop will provide a space for discussion, debate and the sharing of ideas around producing, exhibiting and experiencing art. We hope that it will also contribute to the development of field trips and activities that can be shared with the public as part of the Groundwork programme in 2018.
This week-long residential workshop will be an intensive experience and will require commitment. Participants will be asked to prepare short presentations and provide oral and written evaluations and responses. They will also be encouraged to contribute to the continuing legacy of the workshop by sharing debates and ideas with artists and arts practitioners in the region.
