No studio work today, due to year 3 critique, so I continued my theory reading with Kate in the library. I know I said in another post that the theories on postmodernism were fascinating (and they are) but they are also a challenge to read. Paragraphs with nothing but text on every page, it often feels like it’s discussing anything but fine art. But, as long as I keep highlighting it, I should be fine for next week, where I have to discuss what I have learned with the rest of my group.
In the afternoon, I went to 3 lectures, each one conducted by an artist who used to study at UCA. he lectures were very interesting, as I learned how each artist produced their body of work, what influenced them and how they work has progressed over the years.
Not much else happened today.
