The autumn programme of Guest Speakers at Falmouth School of Art started with Alan Kane visiting on Wednesday 28th September 2016. As well as discussing his work, he discussed his ideas about everyone having a creative outlet – from gurning, to arranging stacks of speakers, to collecting objects.
CAST and LUX presented a series of films selected by Ben Rivers titled ‘Edgelands’ at Falmouth School of Art. The film sequence was inspiring and entertaining, marking a great way to end the lecture series for this year.
In a more informal lecture set up, Falmouth School of Art students were lucky enough to listen to successful alumna, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye in conversation with Dr Ginny Button on Wednesday 9th March 2016. Visual response by BA(Hons) Illustration student, Ella Kasperowicz.
Lindsay Seers delivered a unique and engaging lecture on Wednesday 2nd March 2016 inviting Falmouth School of Art students into her creative process. Her use of photography to document, act as evidence and represent reality as well as raw, truthful lecture delivery inspired the accompanying visual; my unedited spontaneous notes during the presentation. Sharing these brings similar feelings of unease that Seers described as an influence in her work.
Unlike Graham Gussin’s, ‘Unseen Film’, the Falmouth School of Art lecture theatre was packed on Wednesday 17th February 2016 as the artist delivered an engaging lecture regarding light and dark, the influence of cinema and how a black triangle is rather terrifying!
