The Pedagogies of Dissent

As part of the Lab of Dissent 2.0 I brought my A level students from Salisbury 6th Form College to the gallery, inviting them to interact with the artists present and the works displayed, a form of disruption for a space traditionally dedicated to showing ‘professional artists’, thus excluding children. They created their own collective response as a large cyanotype print which is still to be revealed back in the classroom.

During their visit in the gallery, artist Sharon Harvey drew them in action, a true revelation of their own process recorded live and a deep impact on their realisation of their presence in the space as artists themselves.
