Fri 5 Jun        The Art Schools of Britain, with Matthew Cornford
There were over 150 art schools in this country in the mid-1960s. Most of them are now closed or and the buildings repurposed or demolished. John Beck and Matthew Cornford are photographing all of England’s art school sites as they are today. For this talk Matthew Cornford will present their work in progress and discuss ambitions to complete a survey of all the former art schools in the south west.
