month's break, UCLDH Digital Excursions are back! The Strang
Print Room (map), home of UCL Art
Collections, will offer a special tour of the third annual collaboration between UCL Art Collections and the Slade School of Fine Art. Here, Slade students revisit the UCL Art Collection and display their own works using contemporary media and modes of thinking.
Moreover began with a challenge to all current students at the Slade to develop their own practice using contemporary media and contemporary modes of thinking while taking the time to consider and appreciate what has gone before. Over one term students were given special access to thousands of remarkable and historically important objects. They excavated deep to discover a number of hidden treasures including an 18th-century print of a Soho drag queen, an annotated drawing by the arts educator and painter William Coldstream, John Flaxman’s neo-classical plaster casts, postcards addressed to Stanley Spencer, paper records used by museum staff to chart the shifting locations of art work - plus more.
UCL Art Collections now presents the work of 21 finalists – all of whom have appropriated, undermined and/or marked up past masters to create individual, contemporary works in a range of media, including performance, print, sculpture, and video.
Dr Andrea Fredericksen and Nina Pearlman, Curator and Manager of UCL Art Collection respectively, Slade staff and students will be at hand to talk with you about ideas for further innovations and possible collaborations.
The UCL Strang Print Room is located at UCL South Cloisters, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT (map)
