O1 – Socio-Political (Funding)

Funding 16 March 2011, 6.00-8.00pm, Sculpture Seminar Room

How do we negotiate funders’ demands for the work to be ‘useful’ socially? How is the work of art situated politically and economically? What is the optic of the application form and process. What is the relationship of the work of art to value? What is art’s value in an age of austerity?

Special Guest:  Jonathan Miles, RCA tutor, painter
