The Ignorant Art School: Five Sit-ins Towards Creative Emancipation

March 19 @ 10:00 am - May 21 @ 5:00 pm

Ignorant Art School Hatton Gallery Newcastle

Sit-in #2: To Be Potential. An interactive exhibition examining and art education, in partnership with Cooper Gallery

The Ignorant Art School: Five Sit-ins Towards Creative Emancipation is a contemporary art exhibition and event programme devised and curated by Cooper Gallery at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, University of Dundee.

Bringing together artists, designers, educators, activists, cultural workers, students and other communities, the programme questions what art education is and whom it serves now.

Repurposing equality as a practice rather than an ideal, The Ignorant Art School examines the histories and future possibilities of art education and celebrates feminist activist bell hooks’ declaration of “education as the practice of freedom” by building communities of resistance and care.
