Guest Speaker this Wednesday – artist Alan Kane

The Falmouth School of Art Guest Speakers programme starts for the autumn term with artist Alan Kane.

The series brings high profile artists and practitioners to Falmouth to talk about their practice.

5pm, Wednesday 28 September, Lecture Theatre 1, Falmouth Campus

Alan Kane’s installations and photographs often question the distinction between high art and everyday creativity, often bringing commonplace objects into artistic contexts. His most celebrated work is Folk Archive: Contemporary Popular Art from the UK (2000-5), co-curated with Jeremy Deller. The archive brought together drawing, film, performance, costume, decoration, political opinion, humour and objects in a celebration of the diversity and richness of Britain’s folk art. Life Class: Today’s Nude (2009) involved broadcasting a life drawing class nationwide on Channel 4, sharing with daytime TV audiences the esoteric world of the artist’s studio.a3-poster-alan-kane-300dpi
