Lovely group of WEA Nottingham students coping well with temporary accommodation problems at Vernon community college…intervention in the sunshine trumps installation in the classroom any day!

I love the vitality of Facebook. Below is a discussion on the picture above. Discussion in motion.
Rosie Jarrett This isn’t supposed to be art is it?

Chris Lewis-Jones supposed by Whom Rosie? I certainly suppose it be art because it was made by an artist who said it was art. What’s your criterion?
Like · Reply · 15 March at 12:31
Rosie Jarrett Creativity, self expression, entertainment. Something pleasant to look at, exciting, expressive of feeling, descriptive of emotions. Not a few lines on the pavement.

Chris Lewis-Jones this was deeply creative Rosie, and that’s good enough for me. It doesn’t have to ‘express feeling’ to be art and it certainly doesn’t have to be ‘pleasant to look at’ (though this is)! But I prefer it when art is Innovative, and this ‘few lines on the pavement’ is the most innovative art I’ve seen for several days (of seeing a lot of art)!

Rosie Jarrett Shame we couldn’t carry on with our creative writing courses with Nikki due to lack of funding. That was real creativity.

Beccy Benedict Rosie – creativity comes in an infinite number of forms (thankfully) – it would be a very boring and bland world if what everyone thought was creativity and ‘pleasant to look at’ was the same. I too, as someone who prefers abstract art forms, love the creativity in this piece. Whether or not you like it and whether or not you think it expresses ‘feeling’ (which to be honest only the artist can know whether it does that or not) – it has clearly aroused feelings in you – which as far as I am concerned means job done. Perhaps you could write a piece of creative writing about how this piece of art makes you feel. 🙂

Shanghai by the Lake

Creative writing at Lakeside Arts Centre, what could be a nicer way to spend a Friday?

Last term’s course had a focus loosely around an exhibition about Chinese video Art.

The exhibition and course proved an inspiration for Neil Deakin; who penned this poem based on his experiences.

Shanghai by the Lake
by Neil Deakin

 

A black veil falls to reveal

A GA* pretending to stare at nothing.

Four screens mark a room within,

Three awaiting surfaces blank

A face made up with alien hands.

 

Crazy lady her shoes and bag dumped,

Gyrates to the sound of a stretched saw,

Her hands her eyes above her head

Their lids now painted purple pink.

Chinese youth drop dead in sequence

Revived by synth pop saloon sequins

Ambushed by ski masks and a stuffed toy.

 

Crazy Lady clapping joyfully suddenly

Leaves flicker between branches and I

Escape to the calm indifferent Lake,

Twinkling winking thinking winding down or up?

With Shanghai ever so far away.

 

* (GA is an abbreviation for Gallery assistant.)

Contemporary Conversations: Making Art/Making Work – Spring Term 2013

C2330029
Led by Associate Artist Chris Lewis-Jones, the course aims to enhance learners’ ability to engage in the practice of contemporary visual art (and associated creative discourses) as either a professional or an informed amateur. Using the exciting exhibitions programme at Nottingham Contemporary as a primary source and inspiration,  the course is ideal for students, artists, aspiring artists,  community artists, artist-facilitators and art educators, though keen amateurs will also find it both stimulating and useful. Learners do not need to have any formal qualifications in visual art, but a genuine interest in the discourse is essential. Precise course content will be dictated by the evolving aspirations of the learning group as a whole, but it will certainly include: research into art and artists, research into markets and marketing, presentation values, design and evaluation models, writing interpretive texts, collaborative working, exhibitions, curating, basic book-keeping and related activities. Nottingham Contemporary will provide all of the materials and most of the resources needed, though learners will be free to bring their own materials, tools/media if they wish. Sessions will take place in the studio, but will make extensive use of the gallery (and other spaces within the building) too. Field trips to local venues (such as studio groups, community arts centres, colleges or galleries) will be arranged when and if appropriate. The course will culminate in some sort of sharing event/opportunity.

Contemporary Conversations: Making Art/Making Sense – Autumn Term 2012

C2330025
Led by Associate Artist Chris Lewis-Jones, the course aims to enhance learners’ ability to engage in both the theory and practice of contemporary fine art (and associated creative discourses) using the exciting exhibitions programme at Nottingham Contemporary as a primary source and inspiration. The course is ideal for artists, aspiring artists, artist-facilitators and art educators, though keen amateurs will also find it both stimulating and useful. Learners do not need to have any formal qualifications in art, but a genuine interest in the discourse is essential. Precise course content will be dictated by the evolving aspirations of the learning group as a whole, but it will certainly include: research into art and artists, contemporary theory and approaches to practice (mark making, visual language, symbolism and semiotics, collaborative and performative art, dialogue as practice), plus, if appropriate, critique/s of professional practice. Nottingham Contemporary will provide all of the materials and resources needed, though learners will be free to bring their own materials and tools if they wish. Sessions will take place in the studio, but will make extensive use of the gallery (and other spaces within the building) too. Field trips to local venues (such as Primary or New Art Exchange) will be arranged when and if appropriate. The course will probably culminate in some sort of sharing event/opportunity.
