CAS Artists delivered a talk and workshop at Winchester School of Art
for the Contemporary Curation MA students in 2017.
The students got a brief introduction to Dissent as an emerging methodology and the collaborative and discursive practices CAS artists use when they work together. The talk explored how both live art, material dialogue, and digital exchange are all considered and combined. It also showed how artists are often involved in making curatorial decisions when it comes to showing their work, and how that works in collaborative projects.
It was followed by a workshop in which the curators responded to objects such as a coiled spring and a roll of fabric cord, first with word-association on post-it and then collaborating to find ways to express their ideas through play and experimentation.
Most of the students were international students who benefited from CAS Associate Artists drawing out through playful interactions and questions a range of performative and curated displays for further discussion.
