On Thursday 16 March 2023 at 7pm CCA hosts The Art School: Digressions on Affection and Anger a new Lecture Performance by artist, writer, curator and educator Frank Wasser.

In this Lecture Frank Wasser presents a series of Digressions exploring the historical and contemporary complexities, constraints and contradictions of art school education from his experience as a student, researcher and teacher over the past decade. The lecture starts with a visual analysis of the current state of Art School education in the UK and Ireland.

The Virtual Lectures started as a temporary project during the Covid-19 pandemic focused on delivering decentred art education internationally initiated by Frank Wasser. Early lectures were supported by institutions including Pallas Project Space (Dublin) and Tate (London). The lectures developed into a performative and collaborative research project which is currently supported by the Arts Council of Ireland Project Award. Frank will deliver a series of lectures in the Spring of 2023 starting with this lecture ‘The Art School: digressions on Affection and Anger’.

This Lecture Performance forms part of the Public Programme for the exhibition ‘URGENCIES (2023)’.
