Photography and Performance

Recommended for: AS, A2 and Foundation Level Art and Design, Drama and Theatre Studies, Creative and Media Diploma and equivalent

Capacity: 25 places

Artist Emmer Winder will lead an introductory tour of the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2009 exhibition, exploring current contemporary art practices in the work of emerging artists with a focus on selected artists Kristel Raessar and Christopher Thomas.

Students will be taken to a city centre location to create and photograph a performance based on a chosen contemporary event or issue. They will be given the opportunity to edit the images into a short film, analysing the use of perspective and judgement from one singular action.

This workshop is particularly relevant for the following A Level endorsements: Fine Art, Graphic Communication, Three-Dimensional Design and Photography.

Led by artist Emmer Winder

Please note that this workshop is repeated.

Book one date only.


All students attending the Photography and Performance and Celebration in Word and Image workshops will be encouraged to share their experiences, observations and work produced on a blog. Students will have the opportunity to nurture the site by logging books, exhibitions and artworks of interest, and in turn create an ideas-based resource for other art students to benefit from and enjoy.
