In Site of Conversation: On Learning with Art, Audiences and Artists
What does a Learning programme in an art museum afford those who engage with it? In Site of Conversation is a detailed account of the practice of the Tate Learning team, as they work on promoting a space of exchange, conversation and ideas – where the individual learning of everyone involved is equally valued. This book examines the broader questions, theories and concepts of in-gallery learning, examined in essays from Pat Thomson, Rebecca Solnit, Eve Sprague and Nicholas Addison. A useful learning resource for teachers, it also offers an insight into artist perspectives, with chapters by Harold Offeh, Jo Addison & Natasha Kidd, Anna Lucas and Alex Schady. My film work Gustav, Graham and Lee made behind the scenes in the Tate moving image collection is used as a case study for a chapter in this publication. The process of enquiry and final exhibition of the work is revealed and analysed through correspondence with all parties involved. The book also includes a chapter on Affect by Nicholas Addison centred around a workshop in which I worked with teenagers around my film Opi 21, Oopsy Daisy, Tiger Lily in relation to the Tate collection.
