Keynote Speaker Lewis Biggs, Director of the Liverpool Biennial
the role of the college run gallery.The art school gallery is a place that can be described as a meeting of the inside and the outside where artists, students and teachers form an alliance bringing professionals in contact with training professionals. In its way it is permeable whether the gallery is of the fabric of the building or an external space used for this purpose. This workshop will explore effective models for leading and managing art school galleries; from the corridor with little budget to the fully staffed white cube space with a budget. We will determine the flexibility of the art school gallery and its ability to transform according to the project brief, the economic pressure and the currency of the debate. Participants are invited to share their experiences and develop new ways forward for consideration.
