Against the grain or with the flow?

#LabofDissent2019
Performance ; Against the grain or with the flow?
5 December 2019 from 5pm
@ Winchester Gallery, Park Avenue

Artist; Laurence Dube-Rushby

Through my interaction with materials, I explore my connection with institutions both artistic and educational. Are we In or Out?

Despite an initial resistance to entering the education system, I question whether my radical PhD research study in ‘live art as an alternative pedagogical tool in seoncdary education’ may have moved me to self-educate as a Teacher [with a ‘Beuysian’ perspective].

I ask; what is the space for artistic endeavour and freedom within the curriculum? How does dissent and resistance become a medium for learning? Is there still space for making a mark in a capitalistic education system girded towards the production of a workforce?
Can we work against the grain within the flow of education to create a change making practice?

What does flow look like?
What does the grain entice?
How much should we give away in order to gain?
