Sally Noall from the Tate St. Ives and local, Cornwall based artist Naomi Frears spoke to AS level art students about utopian art spaces in preparation for the upcoming refit at the gallery. Students worked in teams to create collages which explored fantasy art spaces and idea for what they would like to see at the gallery. Most surreal suggestions were a gallery cat and bed for tired visitors to nap on. Other ideas that came from the session included work-themed rooms, practical studios for making responses to exhibits and interactive wall displays.
Everyone involved had a great time and look forward to working together again soon.
