“I don’t like to talk about it ….” A presentation by Professor Paul Haywood
Thursday 9 November Central Saint Martins Room C303 at 6.15pm (bridge)
This presentation will cover a series of very short talks about aspects of being an artist, or fulfilling the role of the artist, in the context of social change processes that don’t actually require the presence of an artist.
This is a contemplation about the undertakings of focused and specifically motivated communities and the relevance of their artist friend. The session will include an experimental demonstration of paint making and mixing, using materials that would normally service our social and political identity, subtitled: “How to make oil paints at home, or close to where you live”.
In its entirety, the presentation is a compilation of short semi-fictional and actual accounts of failure in the production of an individualised arts practice.
