A special free event is planned for 8 October, 2019, which will celebrate the end of a fascinating Step Up: Exploring Collections course run at West Dean College of Arts and Conservation by Outside In.
The course involved six artists who each selected an object from the West Dean Collection and Archive which they used as a starting point to develop their research skills, creating new and innovative interpretations that use the collection as a point of departure to explore their own ideas and concerns. The results are described as ‘ dynamic, poetic and exciting’.
This talk will see each of the artists, plus representatives from Outside In and the Collections Team at West Dean College, discuss the outcomes and visitors will also be able to view an exhibition of the work made during the project in the College’s Foyer Gallery.
The exhibition viewing runs from 5pm to 8.00pm, with the presentation talk from 5.30pm – 7.30pm.
