Art Monthly Show February 18th 2011

Art Education- Protest. Occupy. Transform.

Art Monthly Editor Patricia Bickers and Dean Kenning discuss his February 2011 report on the current state of UK University Art Schools with Matt Hale.  Art Department occupations, museum gallery teach-ins and street protests are covered as well as the history of the Art School. They also discuss Mike Watson’s polemic in Art Monthly Dec/Jan issue 342 where he suggests a rejection of academic, University Art Schools and the formation of independent Art Schools.

Art Monthly magazine’s talk programme on Resonance FM started in February 2009 and is broadcast on the second Friday of each month at 5pm. In each show Art Monthly critics discuss their writing in the latest issue.

The programme is hosted by Matt Hale who has worked at Art Monthly since 1991 and produced by Frederika Whitehead.
